This place was an Italian-American dining spot with good pizza at one time but no longer. The service always seemed perfunctory to rude and that may have contributed to closure. When they were open they also offered carry-out and delivery.

We were the first customers for dinner on a Sunday evening, and the restaurant never was crowded, so it was a quiet place to visit and enjoy a meal. All three of us were pleased with our food, and the house signature pasta I had...More

I wanted to try this place for a while but was truly disappointed during my visit. There were hardly any customers on a Friday which should have been an indication but I went ahead and tried the pasta. The food was average at best. The...More
