I went there with two clients that were in their 70s. I'm always worried that a restaurant might be too loud for older clients. This place however was fine. We sat inside, but if we could have sat outside it would have been even better....More

Not only is the food wonderful, the noise level is wonderful. You can have a conversation with your dinner partners without yelling at each other. The white clam sauce is delicious.

It's at least 30 minutes from Mooresville. If you want great Italian in Mooresville, try Caruso's.
