This is our go to place for out of town guests. No matter which meal, the selection is vast and the food is delicious. Try the tomato basil soup as an entree or side - it is fantastic. DH loves the lasagna, and I enjoy...More

This was our second visit and ate outdoors this time. We were drawn back here because our first visit several years ago was an excellent experience. We were more than disappointed this time. Gnocchi with Bolognese...I don't think so. Tasted like frozen gnocchi with a...More

Choose dinner with son here as we were thinking Italian sounded best. Local recommendations had raised our expectations. Seating and service were fine but the food while being good, was not exceptional. The salads were a little small, the pasta entree's just lacked the Wow...More

Terrace is cozy but packed with bugs! Menu is over crowded! Bruschetta is done the American not Italian way! The antipasti was delicious and service was ok. The basis sauces for alfredo and tortellini creamy tomato were very good but where chef started to play...More
