First you can tell it's a great restaurant by the bread they bring you. Hearty, home made bread for dipping starts off the meal. From there it only gets better. From the pizza to more hearty dishes we have always had great service and food.

Good Italian food. From Pizza to a full meal. Good bar with reasonable prices as well as great bar staff. Diverse music on the weekend, from Latin to oldies.

Antipasto $15 with no lettuce and little much of anything else. Not a place to go if you are hungry.More
