    • “Put this one on your list!” 5 of 5 stars

      “I have visited this wonderful restaurant many times. The owner “Giovanni” is frequently seen mingling with customers and stopping at the tables to ensure customer satisfaction. Varied and luscious menu options and the food is delicious and very reasonably priced. The basket of breads are worth the trip alone! Their Pasta E Fagioli and Lobster Bisque are among the best I’ve ever had. Authentic Italian Cuisine in a lovely setting with a waterfall wall, a fireplace and of course, Sinatra sings in the background. I can not single out one entree; you should try them all. If I had to list one little thing on the flip side it would be that it can get a bit loud on a packed night but never to the point of irritation”
