I ate here not too long ago and forgot to write a review. The gnocchi both me and my father ate were horrible. Very expensive as well.

We are wondering if you have this review in the wrong place as we do not have gnocchi on our menu and have not served it in at least a year.

They serve zoodles and red sauce. This place is amazing and it is like eating in someone’s home. Let them know your dietary restrictions and I am certain they will take great care of you!
