Good food freshly prepared. Atmosphere is a bit noisy when all tables are filled, we were there on a Friday night & didn't have to wait. The restaurant is small but prices were very reasonable for the quality of food.

Wonderful fresh seafood and daily specials. Recommend the cioppino, very filling. Fresh bread from local bakery. Staff is very personable. Small place, always busy, but worth the wait.
