The staff is very friendly, and the space is really nice since they have expanded. The warm bread and olive oil that the waitress brought out was absolutely divine! I ordered a Caesar salad to start, and followed it with the lobster stuffed ravioli. The ravioli was made fresh and it almost melted in my mouth. I am making plans to return this weekend for another delightful evening.

The service was excellent. These folks are pros. I had the Veal Marsala and it was delicious. Saw three salmon dishes at my table and the portions were huge and they all loved it. Great job guys and it won't be so long before I come back. House dressing is great and the pasta perfectly cooked. Try the Calamari for an appetizer, delicious! It's worth the drive and I'll be back soon!
