We had a delicious meal of eggplant siciliano, gnocchi and salad. The waitress Janis was lovely and dealt with the crowdedness with grace. The atmosphere is homey and it got a bit loud.

Outstanding authentic Italian food....service was very efficient and friendly. The martini they made for me was one of the best I've tasted in years! Clams in white wine sauce is my 'go to dish' and I was really impressed with their dish. My wife was...More
