We have eaten here many times. Great pasta dishes. Restaurant is small so it feels like you are sitting with the table next to you. Because of the size it can be noisey. Service has always been good.

They have a great selection of pasta and entrees that come in large portions. One couple we were with split a meal and it looked like the size of a normal meal at most restaurants. They also have a selection of local wine and beer.

We lucked into a small table in the bar area and got a seat without reservations. However we were just lucky. Get reservations early in the evening for better luck with the parking lot. The food and service was wonderful!
