Great owner, great food, great service, great location. If your looking for Italian food....this is the place. We came in 2011 with 1 child and returned with 3 this year. Couldn't wait to come back and say hi and taste the great food again.

affordable and good food. Right on main street, the owner works there and make's sure you're happy. He dose'nt even exagerate on the price of a good wine glass.
