The food was great. The atmosphere was fine. Ate dinner at the bar and had a great time. They need more air conditioning. Only reason why I'm not giving them 5 stars.

We had a very good dinner with friends. Very nice atmosphere . This restaurant has been around for many years and I can see why. Also great bartender, Jason. My only complaint is the service was very slow. So get an extra drink and enjoy.

Nice pre-graduation dinner. food is consistent, service is consistent, nothing really out of the ordinary if you are looking for italian food. Most notable for flavor is the focaccia bread, fresh and very moist. Creme brulee for dessert 4.5 out of 5, creamy and nice...More
