Very nice, varied menu. Friendly, attentive staff and owners. Excellent chef, thus excellent tasting food. Reasonable prices. Nice, congenial atmosphere. If weather permits, very comfortable outdoor seating area. It's a "can't miss" for a pleasant, satisfying dinner.

We discovered this spot a few months ago and have become regulars. The brothers-in-law who run it are friendly and attentive. Everything we've had here is good, striking a balance between genuinely Italian cuisine and the Italian-American dishes that dominate other restaurants.

Not when I was there last, just wine. But there were notices in the window about pending liquor license, so I'm uncertain where things are now. Just call them.
