We stopped in here for a quick bite on a Friday night. The food is great. Very good solid Italian food with amazing prices in a bustling upbeat, diner like atmosphere...try and leave room for dessert!

Got penne carbonara and it was very greasy and the past was hard. Normally get great pasta from here but the last few times have been very disappointing.
