The food here is excellent. It is high quality, large portions, but not exotic or attractive for foodies. Service is excellent too, but again it feels traditional and friendly without being smooth or modern. In fact, nothing about the restaurant feels modern. The night we...More

Never disappoints! A warm, friendly restaurant that makes you feel like family. Food is always excellent, desserts are home made and are terrific! Staff is very informative and attentive, and Franco himself typically welcomes you and brings a complementary appetizer to start the evening off.
