Enjoyed a nice Italian dinner with family here. Food portion size were huge- could split pastas. I had a veal dinner and was quite tasty. Pizza looked good but no gluten free items😩

We stumbled on to this restaurant because of a traffic jam. They have an early bird special with many selections and it includes soup or a salad. The personal pizza was good. Prices for glasses of wine were reasonable. Excellent service.

Good spot for linguini and clam sauce! Also like their margherita pizza! Small place, might have to wait depending on the season.

Actually a to go order; the lasagna was excellent. Added a side of meatballs just in case and these were excellent also. I will try going in to eat the next time.

Have not been back in two years after seeing a waitress handling food in a very careless way. She had obviously not been trained.

Picked up a sausage pizza to take back and eat where we were staying. Very tasty and very large pieces! The large gave us leftovers for the day!
