This is good Italian food. The lasagna is one of the best I have ever eaten. I bought a bottle of their Infused Olive Oil to carry home with me after having it served at the table with bread.

Love this family owned place. Good service & great food at a fair price. The desserts are awesome! Portion sizes are huge. Great place for Italian thats not a chain restaurant.
