“Valentines Tradition...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

This was everything we expected and more. We have been coming here each year for valentines day and we are never dissapointed. In the previous years we would order close to the same thing. The waiter had no problems with me coming up with my own pasta dish with my chosen sauce, noodle type, and meats I wanted in it. My fiance always gets the lobster ravioli and it is on point every time. We also always get the bruschetta al granchio and I have yet to find another place who's tastes as good as it does here. We've tried the stuffed chicken salad... excellent! This past time I ordered a plate with shrimp and seared tuna the tune was a little to sweet to my liking but whatever sauce that they cooked those shrimp in was out of this world! Potatoe skins are also excellent, and the pizzas.... seriously the best around. They really take interest in your preferences and didn't mind us switching up the menu a bit. This place never fails us! As a desert I would definately recommend the tuxedo bomb. As an appetizer bruschetta al granchio definately! As main dishes lobster ravioli or the tuna and shrimp recipe. Also don't be afraid to ask the waitress for additional add ins or swaps, I'm sure you'll be pleased with the results of your food being exactly how you want it. If you're a wine drinker I would recommend the sweet white sparkling Moscato . Very good. And to top off an excellent evening they would give me a red rose to take home! They definately aim to please. As in all resteraunt they do have their off says after all.. who doesn't but if anything else don't be afraid to give this place a try. I know we always leave satisfied!

“Pretty Good Food, Ultra Slow Service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

We really were craving pizza on a Monday Evening, but it took us almost an hour just to get a fairly good pizza. The family across from us was getting their food in waves and the poor little daughter never got her spaghetti. The waitress seemed busy, but rarely checked on us. Could have been a better experience

“Excellent Pizza!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

A chef friend convinced me to give this restaurant another try, and told me the pizza was fantastic. We went and tried the pizza, and it was great. The staff was much more attentive than our first trip there, so I am guessing that my first experience was a fluke. We have found our new go-to place for pizza, and I can't wait to try the stromboli!

Good food, nice presentation, loved the piano music. Cute little place. Not too stuffy, and had kids and adult food. Will go again.
