I brought my wife and kids here, two years after being here with friends. It was a great experience again! Although the waiter does not speak another language as Italian, although the menu is what it is on that day, the primi and secondi were...More

We visited on a quiet Sunday but were warmly greeted by the owner who explained the days dishes. Very tasty homemade pasta and beef sausage under the quiet arch - welcome relief in the shade.

I stumbled onto this restaurant and am ever grateful for the experience. It is a family affair, son handling the customers, and mama and the son's wife managing the kitchen. The food was outstanding, pasta homemade. No written menu, all verbal. The family could not...More
