We all decided to order various dinners which included italian bread/butter, good size antipasto salad, cup of soup, your main dish(good size portion), coffee, and dessert. Our waitress (Cora) was excellent. We will definitely be back. I liked the chicken... More

I come here every now and then with family and have always had a good experience. Friendly staff with very welcoming attitudes. The riggies and chicken Marsala are my favorite!

There is NO atmosphere here so dont expect anything fancy.The service was ok...our server forgot a few things but made up for it with the her friendliness and patients with my 2 children who can be a hand full. Everyone who worked there was very friendly and family orientated. I was SO excited they had raw clams (which were delish)... More

Recent business dinner with 9 other colleagues provided a nice atmosphere at a secluded table in a corner for us to discuss some work and new items. Antipasto platters started off the evening that were very good with a nice house dressing. Various meals ordered, but my eggplant parm along with an order of hot peppers was a great choice.... More

We were greeted cheerfully by any staff we saw as soon as we entered, We were seated even though we were not all there, even though I had forgotten to make the reservations. This was a group of friends who dine out monthly, and there was no problem with getting separate checks. The service was excellent. Our meals were wonderful.... More

Quiet setting with good food. The waitress was good and also friendly. It's a little upscale prices aren't bad.
