Perfect for any occasion. No complaints. Excellent service. Amazing food. The owner, is a master in customer service (UNLIKE MADALA. THEY ARE TERRIBLE). He personally serves and recommends dishes. Amazing decorations and great food. Recommended. We will go back! Great value. Nice people.

A real taste of Italian food! The owner is adorable and the food is excellent. We strongly recommend the salmon and shrimp tagliatelle (which is homemade).
