Veal Parm is delicious and large serving and the clams and mussels were fabulous.. We were treated very kindly by the staff and owner who took time out of his busy night to speak with us. We will come back for sure.

My nephews and I used to be regulars but haven't been there as much recently. The food and service remain top notch. Were all a big fan of the mussels.
