This is a quiet, romantic spot with wonderful, homemade offerings. There is a self-serve antipasti bar at one end of the restaurant. The theme of the restaurant is the 1940's and the music playlist is from that era; the tables are set with red/white check...More

We ate on a large patio and were served by a very friendly young woman and the owners. The menu has a home-cooked feel to it with interesting specials. We all enjoyed our selections.

Needed a change of pace. It was quiet with just a few tables in use. Good menu and service at reasonable prices. We really enjoyed our meal.

The service was good but the food was not memorable. It was also pricey. Not busy but probably because it isn't that good.

Food was fine but never felt so unwelcomed, and we were the only two in the restaurant. Over-reacted about my comment on their decor. Criticized my husband when he didn't finish his salad. Didn't tell us about their complimentary olive bar. The food was fine...More
