Quite pleased by the Price Fixe menu with its extensive selections. My wife declared the mussels broth the tastiest ever. My meatballs and veal both exceptional. The salad was only okay.

First, I'll start with the good things. The service was attentive and good. Although the server was very busy and at times, did seem like we were waiting forever, that's a typical Italian style. Don't expect fast service but that's OK. For the most part,...More
