Highly recommend this Restaurant. The owners and staff go out of their way to decorate as per season! You do not want to miss this beautiful setting. The food is amazing. Pizza is the best ever.

I have been frequenting this eatery for several years and each & every time, my visits have been perfect. I am greeted at the door in a friendly manner, if there is a wait, they are quite accurate on how long the wait will be and once seated at a table, the server is present and at your service within...

Have been here a number of times and keep going back. The staff are very attentive and the service is fairly fast. Food is exceptional especially the pasta dishes and the pizzas - love the Monday/Tuesday special when these are discounted. Give them a try you will be happy you did.

Took my family here for the dinner and a movie special. $19.95. We ordered the spaghetti, lasagna and a pizza from the special menu. Worst pasta ever. Soggy noodles, watery sauce and a flavor that can only be described as chef boyardee..most disorganized servers..lineups in the waiting area and half the tables empty. And apparently 3 hostesses can't figure it... More

Our group was partially served their salad and the two with soup and salad orders sat empty handed while the rest of their group ate their salad and then were the first to be served their main courses.
