That was a quote from my mother-in law. We had the pizza, rigatoni, shrimp, meatloaf, and chicken fingers. So we tried it all. All were excellent! And service was friendly and attentive. Highly recommend.

Soup was yummy, with arugula, roasted sweet potatoes, goat cheese, toasted pecans, in a truffle-honey vinaigrette. My entree was a specialty pizza called "autunno" that featured asiago,...More
