My husband and I had a terrific dinner here recently at this family-owned, bustling Italian restaurant. I had a shaved zucchini salad that was unique, absolutely fresh and lightly dressed. This weekend I went by and the restaurant has closed for business.

This was a delicious meal! We started with the seafood cocktail, which is a martini glass filled with avocado, mango, shrimp, crab, and lobster. It is fantastic. Light, tasty, and just right. For my second course, I enjoyed a perfect veal parmigiana. The tender, large,...More
