This is our go to restaurant for lunch, dinner, and happy hour. Waiters and bartenders are the best-treat you like family. Pizza from wood burning oven is the best. Great Caesar salad and entrees like clam spaghetti, salmon, spaghetti with meat sauce, and steak taglita.

The Cannelloni Bolognese had clumps of flour in it. Their tomato sauce was acidic. The Veal Pizzaiola had no garlic or oregano flavor. Very disappointing. Both the Caesar salad and house salad were very good, though.

We ate here several years ago. No excuse why we never returned. Wife was hungry for pasta tonight. She ordered pain spaghetti and marinara sauce. Declared it outstanding. My lobster ravioli was excellent. Fast, friendly service. Glad we came back
