We were tired and hungry and just pulled into town after 14 hours in the car. To say i was disappointed with the meal would be an understatement. The sauce tasted burnt and the pasta was overcooked.....Not impressed and will not return.

While staying on Vilano, we visited this restaurant. Very good house made Italian dishes and reasonable prices. Only downside was requirement of cash or debit card for payment.
