Been wanting to try this place for a while and was not disappointed. Enjoyed a tasty cocktail to start. Our appetizer, soup and entrée were all delicious and the presentation was really nice. Can't wait to go back with friends and family.

Food is freshly prepared by Italian chef/owner. Tablecloths and place settings add to the dining experience. My husband really likes the burgers. He thinks they're the best in town. Staff is very friendly and accommodating.

Food was good, young, inexperienced waiter was trying his best. When the food took over an hour to come out of the kitchen, the manager(?s) did nothing to support their staff. Instead, blamed all problems on their poorly run system. Too bad.

The four of us went there last week (Tues night). We had the Fried Calamari and it was very disappointing. The presentation was not appealing at all but most of all, it was overcooked. Overcooked squid is rubber bands. I had the Eggplant Parmigiana Double-stacked,...More
