Lovely atmosphere. The waiter, Dino, an Albanian, had a great sense of humor. The food really good . We had fried calamari, filet mignon and spinach, all excellent.

Long wait for service. Rude service when arrived. Spoke to manager about it. Behavior accepted. Not a usual negative reviewer but must let you know. Plenty of other options close by unless you want to wait a long time to be rudely served.

Tried dinner specials ( Filets and salmon). Looked good on the menu, not really in the plate. Poor presentation of food and small portions. Overpriced.
