This place lived up to the reviews. Incredible Caesar salad and caprese. My dinner of ravioli in a pink sauce with shrimp was absolutely perfect as was my husband's penne with vodka sauce and peas. Definitely looking for a reason to return!

We've been to this restaurant four times and the meal has always been top notch. It's a small place so I highly recommend that you call ahead for reservations. They have a fabulous appetizer with two cheeses wrapped in prosciutto with arugula on the side....More

This was our first visit and, gladly, it won't be our last. We were visiting from NY and went with friends. The restaurant is very rustic and comfortable. The service is very down to earth but also very professional. The food, especially the specials, is...More
