We went here on the recommendation of the bartender at our hotel and weren't disappointed. The menu had a great selection and everything tasted fresh. My only disappointment was the portion was so huge I couldn't finish it! But the salmon was delicious and so were my husband's short ribs. We even took a couple of cannolis to go and... More

My husband and I stumbled upon this place, which is a bit off the beaten path. It was a delightful find. We ordered entrees that came with warm bread, a salad and side of either pasta or vegetable of the day. Plenty of food, and it was really good. The wine was pricey at $10.00 a glass, but the entrees... More

The prices are high, but I don't mine paying for good food and I walk out full and happy with the experience. The location is off the... More

A friend took me here for dinner. It's what you look for, that out of the way place with amazing food. The smell when you walk in the door lets you know that you are in for a treat. We had the mushrooms stuffed with sausage to start, then the fettuccine Alfredo with grilled chicken and was what I've been... More
