A very successful visit with our 12 and 14 year old girls. The curried mussels appetizer, which I had as my dinner, and pasta Nonna with chicken were excellent. You can get small orders of regular pasta that are good sizes for kids.

I had the beef pappardelle. The pasta was good, but the beef tasted a bit "stale". My wife had a 3-topping pizza, and it came with 1 topping on 1/3 of it, the 2nd topping on 1/3, and the final topping on the final 1/3....More

Food was delicious, decor is warm and nice, service was excellent. Servwr was helpful and friendly, I was served promptly and not pressured to leave once I finished my meal. It was a good spot to have dinner by myself out of town on business.

I took my daughter and her two friends here as a treat on Remembrance Day weekend. I was not impressed. The price of the dishes was steep. Also, i have never been to an Italian restaurant that used powdered cheese!!!!!! Yuck! Will never return.More

I was delighted by the Salmon pasta in cream sauce with arugula.... The Italian wine was nice, but I have tried better ones. The tiramisu was very nice, especially because it was not very sugar-loaded. Though, I only regret that it lacked a little bit...More
