Service was very good overall. Fast, efficient and knowledgeable.Pasta and marinara was real nice, but the veal was not top quality, just OK in terms of tenderness.

Finally...I'm home. Been living in Florida for 3 years now and struggled to find an Italian restaurant we can call our own..until now. The food is so good, I'm salivating just writing this review. Be back there this Sunday, and every Sunday. Just like home.
