Nice servers, great food. I love the Sinatra music playing in the restaurant. I am already planning a couple of trips back when it is cooler so I can sit on the patio. The service at lunch is very efficient.

Real Italian gravy not just tomato sauce on the spaghetti! The Vegetarian lasagna was also very good. Nice portion size and we were made to feel like the family.

Probably first ones there for supper. Prompt courteous service. Ample portions, and we did not need dessert.
