Wow. This is like New York/Boston/Providence Italian. We had the Veal Francese and Tortellini Boscaiola. Tiramisu was superb. Great service in charming spot on the edge of town. We'll be back.

Really good food, good value, and a BYOB. But, extremely LOUD. We could hardly hear each other as the evening wore on. Something wrong with the acoustics.

New Years Eve dinner was a disappointment. One salad was served with frozen tomatoes and the waitress acted like it was a normal occurrence. We were offered no fresh cracked pepper or any type of drink after dinner but coffee. Our waitress offered every other...More

Where to begin? The complimentary bean salad is to die for. The artichoke appetizer perfect. Always a delicious meal, lunch or dinner. Try Sunday Pranza with friends and family.j
