Stopped in for a nice meal after the movies. Nice , warm environment with friendly help. The cavatelli and broccoli was tasty and generous portion. The Margherite pizza was fresh and crisp. Nice fresh mozzarella , plum tomatoes and basil leaves were yummy!

Lovely setting for the recent retirement party we had for a colleague. The food was fantastic. Services was very attentive and unobtrusive during the speeches. A delightful evening with homemade tastes and a warm atmosphere.
