I absolutely love the location and the food here. It's a bit small, but has more of an intimate feel for couples or friends going out to eat. Their pasta and bread is amazing! I can tell their food in fresh and made from scratch....More

We have gone to this restaurant many times but our experience last Tuesday was disasterous. I almost broke my tooth on pebbles and sand in the clams/mussels dish. The waitress did nothing but said it was because it was seafood. I agree but I'd never...More
