The food here is average to above-average. But if you go on a nice summer evening, you will enjoy just eating in this environment. Good location close to many sites.

Located on the second floor across from the Ritz Theater, this is a pleasant restaurant with a wide variety of selections. The fish and the pasta that we had were nicely-prepared and served appropriately. The dining room can be noisy when full.
