Excellent food at great prices and perhaps the best service in PS. Reservations recommended. To dine out on the patio was a 2-week wait so we opted for the dining room.

This very popular restaurant was recommended by locals . A reservation is required. The food was very nice and prices reasonable . Portions large. The service was spotty. No water refills without flagging someone down. The desert was amazing and enough for 2

Six of us dined here last month. I ordered the ravioli. It came with a very so-so salad. I ate about one fourth of it. The ravioli came in a pool of water. No, not sauce, WATER. It wasn't edible so I asked them to...More
