this is a very good Italian restaurant. It is owner by Bill. He provides a very tasty Italian menu with a pretty decent wine. We visit here often. In the summer time there is an outdoor seating area on a stream. Good food fair price.

Reasonable Italian menu that includes local produce. Good, attentive service. One of our meals was not very good. Nice location by a stream, which entertained our grandson. But overall it is recommended.

This is a nice, smallish restaurant with outdoor seating just off Msin street. Lots of variety on the menus and meals for vegetarians. Salads are great! The food is seasoned from their own herb garden. Great place for a group meal with family or friends

We love this place! Have been probably 10 times. Great food, excellent service and a nice selection of wine and beer. The interior is nicely rustic and they have a great outdoor patio.
