Enjoyed several Italian dishes including excellent pizza. Friendly and attentive service. Good and reasonably priced wines by the glass.

Had a great dinner in this Italian place. The place serves pizza which are pricier than usual but this is also not a cheap place otherwise. We shared with 3 a starting platter for 2 which was more than enough ham and such. Tasty but...More
