Pork and gnocchi. Spaghetti with zucchini and shrimp sauce. Both delicious! The pork was a surprise with the prosciutto layered quite generously on top. Homemade gnocchi. The owner and chef took the time to come out and describe a meal on the menu. Italian food...More

Our group of 8 went here twice for breakfast. Since it was off season we were the only ones there. Service was quick and friendly. The breakfast options were great also.
