Stopped here for the 4th time last night. Every time the food was out of sight. Everything I have eaten here (pizza, spaghetti, fettuccine Alfredo) has been the best I have ever eaten ANYWHERE! The coconut creme pie is unbelievable!

Solid Italian food with very good sauces. Super friendly waitstaff make sure that you are well taken care of. As opposed to some newer restaurants, you don’t feel rushed in this cozy place. Chicken parm is crispy but still tasty.

We do offer a gluten free spaghetti pasta and most of our pasta dishes can be made using this. We also have fresh fish, steaks and salads that are gluten free. Thanks for the inquiry.
