Great family run Italian restaurant. Treated like one of their own. Entire menu was enticing. Small dining room so call and make a reservation for dinner.

If it is a smaller size group they can, but if you are looking for a venue that has a private room, they do not have one or if you are looking to accommodate 20 or more people they do not have the space.
