They have great seafood pasta plus dayly specials. You will never walk away hungry from this place. We eat there often or call orders in to be picked up. We have never had a bad meal at this restaurant.

We waited an hour and fifteen minutes to get a table, and our meal with no appetizers took two hours. Waiter was very friendly, had a nervous laugh, and was saying all the right things; however, it took too long. Menu does not cater to...More
