Server was not cordial, personable or proactive. They were out of two entries...chicken & mussels. No bread! Children's meal was served last. Server never stopped buy to ask how was our meal. Drop the check with no communication. Food was classic Italian, very tasty. But...More

The shrimp piccata was quite good. Service, despite a busy evening also excellent. I was on a tight schedule and they were very accommodating

A menu with good variety. The evening we dined featured various pasta dishes as well as some local fish. Its location is on the south end of the main shopping street. On street close by parking can be a challenge. A pleasant dining experience.

Don't think it was on menu. But no harm calling to see if they can make it for you.

It's not the place you want to pay just for boiled lobster. Too costly for plain lobster. Claws, about a mile down Main Street is the place to go for that, nice water view , very casual , most outdoor type place.
