Not cheap, but a really good meal. The gnocchi is fabulous. Huge, flavorful bowl of soup. Service was great.

Hi New Yorker, I like your title "Fun Date". Seafood pasta is also one of my favorite dishes ever. Next time we will teach you Italian to better understand our waitress (Joke) Mamma Mia!

Food was wonderful and service was excellent! Had a little difficulty understanding our server at times but he was patient! Gnocchi was wonderful as was the lobster and grouper. Be warned, the complimentary limoncello after dinner is "stout"! We will be back!
