Francesco, the owner, is on top of everything going in the restaurant. The food is always good, hot when its served and tastes like home cooked. The Italian Wedding Soup is always on our order. Never had a bad meal ther.

First time at this place. I tried the egg plant rollatini which is one of my favorites Italian dishes, but I was not impressed. The eggplant was over cooked which made it dry. Didn't care for the penne pasta either. What they do make really,...More
