Have been there 2-3 times. Nice menu with veal, fish, pasta, chicken. Food and service has always been good. Old fashioned Italian restaurant with a diversified menu. Dated looking restaurant! But food is good. Worth a try

Great service and great food with a gluten free menu as well. The atmosphere is very nice. While the servings are not ample, they are satisfying and very well prepared.

The food is really good and they take precautions as far as gluten goes. However, the service is terrible. Our waitress was visibly sick, coughing and sneezing into the plates. Then as soon as she brought coffee and dessert, she placed our check in front...More
