This is a follow-up review. The original owners of this restaurant retired a couple of years ago, and it simply is not as good as it was. The food quality - both ingredients and preparation - has declined, and the service has become inconsistent. It's...More

Had our anniversary dinner there. Food was great. We had chicken piccata and a spicy shrimp/pasta dish. Meal came with garlic bread, salad, and had some spumone. Waitress was good and attentive, background music very soothing.

We were a group of three. I had the Chicken Marsala, another had the Cantalone and another had the homemade sausage and spinach on penne. All were excellent. We finished with the chocolate mousse... that will cure all your ills. Just that.
