This is a fun Italian restaurant made famous in the movie "Rain Man." The food is good, the quantities are generous, and the staff is friendly. On the downside, in the evenings, it can be crowded and parking can be problematic.

Went the evening before for drinks and the great entertainment. The meals looked so good we got takeout the very next evening. The beef ravioli was great and the spaghetti with meatballs were super good.
