This is a small, quaint restaurant offering an extensive menu. The food is excellent and the service is very good. The portions are big. I cannot wait to go back and try other items on the menu. It feels like being at someone's home.

This is our "go to spot " for Italian in the area. Good food, good prices and a friendly staff. Smaller restaurant adds to the charm.
