Went with eleven, six adults, five kids. The kids menu was great silk the kids found something to eat. It's a good italian menu, spaghetti, parmesan, lasagne etc. All very well prepared and good portions, beer and wine prices were average, but a good selection....More

Great local farm to table approach. Food is great, we have never been disappointed.It's nice to see mini cheese ravioli on the menu for my kids. One item to note; I find the portion sizes for some dishes small.

Prices were reasonable. Tomato sauce on the bland side. More Italian seasoning and salt would help. The fried gnocchi was good and the sausage spicy as described. The calamari is good with two sauces to dip in. The staff is friendly and checked on us...More

I can't believe how terrible this restaurant is. The food is oily to the point where my wife and 2 children could barley eat it and what we did eat made us all feel horrible.
