Nice pasta dish. Poor waitstaff experience. Cannot read into the mind of another, but the message seemed to be "You're lucky to be here and to have us waiting on you." Unexpected disappointment!

Entrées run from $11.00 to 18.00. The lunch menu is not as extensive as the dinner menu but the offerings are similar. Also, the restaurant always has off-menu specials at both lunch and dinner.
