What a surprise! Wonderful atmosphere, service was great. Menu was very extensive, both Italian and Mexican. We all stayed on the Italian side of the menu. Except for a basil margarita that I had. Possibly the best marg I have ever had.

I am not familiar with the menu enough with their menu beyond the menu having vegetarian options. I would call or email them to find out.
