That place ended up being closed and we went to Sortino's. One of the best food decisions we ever made in our life. Staff was wonderful, waitress was very helpful with her knowledge of the menu...

We moved out of the area a few years ago and every time we try to stop on the weekend they are packed. We wondered in on... More
