The food was tasty but unimaginative and overpriced, especially the salad antipasti. Our waiter recited the specials of the day but failed to inform us of their prices. The restaurant is located on a busy street where parking is difficult to find at dinner time....More

Our family came here to celebrate. Can't beat 1/2 price wine on Sundays. We shared some apps--fried calamari, antiposto and garlic bread--which were very good. We had a variety of homemade pastas, swordfish and veal boehner for our main--all delicious. The pistasio dessert was great,...More
