Their pastas are one of the best in town. It is a small place, but has it's own character and charm. Quite frankly, their veggie pastas are a delight! Must try the orange sauce!!

This is delicious Italian food. I got the cheese & mushroom ravioli and my husband got the scallops. Both were yummy. The atmosphere is quiet and we could really have a conversation.

Where can you go for lunch and get an entrée with salad for $9? The food is excellent and the price is right. Combine that with good service and you have a winning restaurant. Love the Raspberry Vinegarette salad with cranberries and white chocolate shavings!
