Great atmosphere. Good music appropriate to the Italian atmosphere. All of their food is wonderful. The spaghetti and meat balls are the best in town. Family owned and all the food is cooked by the family. Has that special touch. Great for the whole family.

The restaurant is a bit hidden but it's been there a long time. This is a family owned and run southern Italian style restaurant. Very consistent. Service is pleasant and well directed. This is a "go to" place for veal and red sauce.

It's not "Cheap Eats" but I found the prices reasonable for the quality of food. The service and general ambience is good too.
