This is a very nice Italian restaurant in the old Interurban Depot. The food is really fresh and good! A good place for a relaxing evening for drinks and dinner.

Having been to Italy I have to agree that the food while "Italian" is not nearly as good as what you get in Italy. The atmosphere is very nice given the dim lights and the nice decor. Service is pretty good although at times it...More
