Have gone there several times for business lunches and was dissatisfied each time. Service was not the best and food was definitely not up to good standards. Won't go back for personal meals.

I would absolutely eat there again... More

Had a good meal and reasonably priced. Portions are generous. Owners are from Sicily and provide a good selection of seafood dishes. Staff is courteous and knowledgeable.

This IS an Italian restaurant! The young people working there spoke Italian to each other! We started with the calamari in a very light batter. I had POLLO VERONA, Yum & very filling! DH had a four cheese ravioli! It's worth the short drive into town to eat here. And you get to see the town square to boot! The... More
