We happened to go on a beautiful day and were seated outside. The outdoor atmosphere was great and the portions were both large and tasty!

Food was great I had a shrimp and pasta dish with the diablo shrimp appetizer. What surprised me was the house wine. I chose the cab and it was great. I was expecting boring or mediocre and was very surprised by the selection.
