Dinner for 8. Service was timely, pleasant and fun. Ordered from menu. Food was timely, hot, and excellent as reported by all. Eggplant Parmesan specialty loved by those who ordered. Other pasta dishes equally good. Reasonable price too.

Nice family place with comfortable dining room and classic Italian dishes. Loved the pasta with meatsauce and extra side of meatballs. Appreciated the choice of pastas, I got angel hair. We all enjoyed our meal and had very good service.
