Their prices are reasonable; the food is good; and they deliver. Started with the Arancini Piccolini, fried Italian rice balls with ground beef. Main course was the ravioli stuffed with meat in a very good meat sauce. Finished off with the limoncello mascarpone dessert. Definitely a place I will call on again.

We had a great meal and great service. We went as an option out of dining at great Wolfe lodge and were thrilled. The only remark I would make is that the table are very close together. Be nice and courteous to your neighbors! Enjoy!

The restaurant's location in a strip shopping center outside of town may seem uninspiring, but once you step inside you'll think you're transported to an Italian trattoria. It's a small restaurant, so if you have a large group - or even a moderate size one - you better call ahead. But you'll find the food authentic and the service very... More
