Food is very good. Especially good- Mama's meatballs & sausage, the Bolognese sauce and the Caesar salad.

Great food, friendly staff and awesome water views. The menu in limited and a little pricey. I wouldn't recommend this place to a picky eater.

It depends on the night, but generally a day in advance is plenty of time. A Saturday night in August, Memorial Day, Labor Day, or week of July 4 is a different story. You may want to reserve several days in advance for... More
