We had food from salad, to appetizers, to entrees to dessert. EVERYTHING was GREAT! We are a family of foodies and everything that hit our plates received the highest marks. Can’t wait to go back again. YOU MUST HAVE A RESERVATION!!!!

While the place is small and they do not take reservations you have to get there early. The food was excellent. The portions were big and the friendly service all made for a great dinning experience.

I ate there last night and ordered pasta with seafood. My Caesar's salad was very good as was my main dish. The service was excellent. The prices were very reasonable. The restaurant was crowded, and I can see why.
