Staff was very good, home town feel to this place. Very personable. The food was of a quality you'd expect from a place 20% more expensive. Quite good. Very good wine selection, too.

I love the Italian Job. Nice people solid food whose long suit is consistency. Entrees, pasta ... It doesn't matter. You can count on it being prepared with fresh ingredients, care and skill. Don't pass up the starters. Many of them make a great meal...More
