Nice place and the food is good. The atmosphere is really nice and the downstairs is a nice little area to just hang out and relax.

Food is always great. Marsala is my favorite, along with lobster tails for dessert! But service can be slow.

I love the mozzarella and tomatoe salad always enough for two to share. Food is always so fresh tasting. Lobster tail desert is to die for.
