Food was fresh, tasty and lots of choices.....wife had the ribs and they were perfect....I had the clam linguine and it was also great. If you want a salad instead of fries, ask for it....they are more than accommodating with their menu.

Small restaurant but they have additional seating upstairs and outdoors (weather permitting). Great Italian food. Fun to drink wine, listen to music, and share dinner with friends.

That's my recollection as well. I don't think he has a separate fish item on the menu unless he happens to do something as a daily special. The fettucine w/ shellfish is really good.
