Good food. I had soup and salad. Hubby had shrimp scampi. Delicious! Ordered the zucchini bites...they were very bland... not much flavor even with the Marana sauce. Had their taramaso. ..it was delicious. Little expensive for what we got as a meal.

It was busy but pleasant, we had a nice lunch, the service was "pretty good" (not excellent). The food was fine. The wait wasn't too long, it was an overall good experience.
