This is where the old race car drivers would hang out. They would eat here, stay here and drink here. (By all means, go downstairs and see the bar). We had made a reservation for a water view table by the window and that's what...More

Step back to the 60’s. The restaurant was clean but dated. The waitress was very attentive. The menu catered more to the spicy Italian palate, with several entrees including hot sausage, red peppers, and/ or banana peppers. My salmon over Parmesan risotto was tasty, while...More
