The food here is fantastic-especially the rosemary bread, the manicotti, the ravioli, the halibut, and the creme brûlée. The environment could improve (it’s often waaaay too hot in there), and the service always seems slow. It’s definitely worth the visit as long as you aren’t...More

Wasn't sure the first time. 2nd time I decided to review. The choppino is great. The crab crusted salmon is better, the bread with butter and pesto is amazing. You really can't go wrong from what I can tell. 5 stars.
