Loved our dinner there tonight using the 2 for $25 special they are running Sunday through Thursdays! Linguini with claim sauce one of the best we've ever had and chicken parm was great! Eggplant parm with risotto was fabulous too! Cant wait to go back!!

The tour of Italy dinner is delicious; I do not recommend anything with spinach as there's too much Sambuca in it for my taste. The atmosphere makes you feel very relaxing and cozy. The prices are modest and the drinks are well-proportioned.

They do have Spinoni but it's chocolate covered without the claret sauce. It is very very good.

Nope. First come first served. However, for large groups they will reserve a private room.
