When we went, we weren't expecting too much. But we were wrong, all 4 of us had great tasting meals. They even offer Gluten free pastas that were very good. The garlic knots are to die for! Good service and very good food.

Lovely little Italian Bistro. A bit pricey, but so worth it. Garlic knots to die for, always great, friendly service.
