This family owned authentic Italian restaurant has been well kept secret for too long. The food is pricey and you better have a reservation, but the quality of meals and the lively atmosphere more than make up for this.

Worth the extra effort to locate this small, casual place. Make a reservation as they appear to stay busy - seating available inside or on the screened porch. Attentive service, fresh bread, large portions, and reasonable prices. A perfect alternative away from the tourist areas.
