We had a great dinner for Valentine's..very romantic inside. Great food . I had shrimp and scallops over linguine and my husband had a spaghetti carbonara.. prices are very reasonable and the service was great.. The owner Claudia was very nice she came around and talked to us. We will definitely come back.

Took my wife and mother there for Mothers Day. Good food, excellent wine and good staff. Kind of intimate which is a nice feeling.

I have been to eat dinner at this restaurant 3 times and each time it has been absolutely delicious. I highly recommend any kind of fish...always fish, prepared simply, elegantly but also with complex flavors...melt in your mouth!

We came back for dinner given the great meal we had in January. Our experience was matched with great wait staff, thanks Faith!, warm bread, fine wine and wonderful food. I tried the walnut and spinach ravioli which was delicious. The veal parm was good and plentiful. We enjoyed the stuffed pepper appetizer which was very spicy. It is a... More

This place has the BEST food and the FRIENDLIEST staff!! The food is always fresh and there is something to please everyone. Prices are good also. The staff remembers you when you go back. I feel like Tracy has become one of the family and always look forward to having her wait on me.
