Located in a shopping center with Italian ambiance for décor inside and out.....we chose to eat inside due to winds but tables were available with heaters. Good range of well prepared dishes. Three of us enjoyed our choices for the meals along with the wines.

Our Italian dinners were very good, but the salmon & fish were dried out. Stick with Italian food & you will be happy. The service was excellent & prices reasonable. We will return.

It depends on what you order: there is no set price for a setting/meal, and they reserve the right to charge what you order as opposed to a set price for every party member. They could probably work with you to set a price... More
