Great Meal for all of us. Pasta & Wine always a good combination. The Atmosphere is Unique withs its "Starry Ceiling" ,interior decor, intermittent serenades and warm and friendly service. On Valentines Day Ladies were all given Red Roses during the dinner...Nice Touch!

They do have Spinoni but it's chocolate covered without the claret sauce. It is very very good.
