This is a place have been going to for over 20 years and I have never been disappointed. The food is exceptional and authentic. My husband and I had our first Valentine's there and we try and get back every few months. A must eat experience.

Second year in a row we've been here for my birthday and it does not disappoint. Friendly and professional staff, nice ambiance, and to die for food. Never had such delicious melt-in-your-mouth gnocchi like theirs​ before! Would definitely return.

The menu 15 years later is still relatively the same and delicious pasta is still cooked right at your table. The smell of freshly cooked garlic lingers in... More

I don't recall when I have had a better meal along with fantastic service from Carrie. The salad with homemade dressing served on cold plates just out of the freezer was the start of our amazing meal. Fresh warm bread followed. I had the Angus Beef Steak Diane which melted in your mouth and the fresh mushrooms were superb. The... More
