My husband and I just ate here after a stressful will. It was just what we needed to recuperate. Excellent service without being annoying. Great, tasty food. Excellent wine. Romantic atmosphere.

I lunched here today with friends. First visit and won't be the last. The food was fabulous!! I ordered the Queens panini with a side of greens. My friends all raved about their meal as well. Little gem a block north of Main Street.

this is a very good Italian restaurant. It is owner by Bill. He provides a very tasty Italian menu with a pretty decent wine. We visit here often. In the summer time there is an outdoor seating area on a stream. Good food fair price.
