We really enjoyed this restaurant . Great food - loved the chicken Marsala and pear Gorgonzola salad-- will definitely recommend this little place, great staff - even booths with privacy curtains . On the corner of a strip mall, so nothing fancy , but lovely.

Very good value for a family! Our family of four ate here for dinner. There are enough choices for everyone! The pasta combos comes with a salad (or soup) and a drink for $8.49. This makes the drink basically free. The soda dispenser is the...More
