是一家類美式平價義大利麵,偏當地口味很鹹,蕃茄醬汁偏酸,店內汔水可無限暢飲,唯一推薦的是現烤麵包,尤其是大蒜抹醬特別好吃。 The spaghetti is really American style, not expensive full of local people. Soft drink could be refill, the bread with garlic butter is the only recommended.

It was about to rain and the restaurant was nearby. Well we chose a very hectic night (not the restaurant's fault) with a couple of special events also taking place here. The hostess was very nice but seated people who answered to our name. Should...More
