Food is fantastic. Service is friendly with a feeling of being in a family atmosphere. They have a tapas at the bar with happy hour type pricing. Pizza is the best with homemade flavor.

This restaurant is more of a family type establishment since the noise level is high and there were a lot of people there on our Saturday night visit. The menu has a good variety of options at reasonable prices. Bread with oil and vinegar is...More

Don't let the "off the beaten path" location of this restaurant fool you ... it's awesome, fresh and delicious Italian food. We've dined here twice and our family dines here more often because they live closer but we will return again and again. Excellent selection...More

Stumbled on this place on our way to winetasting. Very pretty inside, but unfortunately the acoustics were such that it was very noisy even half full. Chicken piccata, Rustico house salad, and chicken Parmesan were all five star eating experiences. Service a little slow, but...More
