Small place but we ate after 8pm, so no problem getting a table. The food was delicious! Appetizer of shrimp, bruchetta, garlic bread all wonderful. Family dinner and all kids were very happy. Large portions - great value - Highly recommend. BYOB.

WOW. Service is second to none. Decor is very nice. Food is amazing and well-price. Bring a bottle of wine and you will NOT be sorry! Helpful hint - there's a state store a few doors down if you need to pick one up.
