After a long day/night of travel, nothing satisfies like Italian food. While this may not be authentic Italian nor the best we've ever eaten, it never fails to disappoint. The lasagne is great comfort food.

This restaurant had a good variety of food options. Each was well prepared, nicely served and delicious. We even found that the desserts were more to our taste rather than too sweet as others had been.
