I have been going here for years. It is a un-kept secret. They need no advertisements, basically word of mouth, and it stays full. That says it all. But don't go there, because then I won't be able to get in when I want! Try...More

Went to Tradewinds to celebrate a special occasion for our family. We have eaten at Tradewinds a few times over the years and it was always absolutely delicious. Fresh, homemade Italian food bursting with flavor. This time, however, it was really bad. Everything was very...More

Worth the extra effort to locate this small, casual place. Make a reservation as they appear to stay busy - seating available inside or on the screened porch. Attentive service, fresh bread, large portions, and reasonable prices. A perfect alternative away from the tourist areas.

You have to look for this one. We had to turn around and park in neighbor's lot. Not many tables, so reserve if you want to go. The name makes it sound like it's a grocery store -- it's not! It's an Italian family-owned restaurant...More

Hadn't been in a year or so. Have dined at this restaurant for over 15 years. Specials each nite. Good wine and beer selection. Had the special. The cheese ravioli and meat balls in a tomato sauce. Good but it was drowning in the sauce....More
