    All the homemade pasta dishes are fantastic. The lasagna and spaghetti with lamb are almond my favorites. The grilled calamari are also light and delicious. The house wine is a bit expensive but good!

    Raviolis are to die for. Check their house wine and do leave place for cheesecake

    Cute little place. I'm not a fan of "Italian" food that's just a bunch of pasta and red sauce. This is place is so much better then that. Great menu. Great sangria. Know that it's cash only, though.

    Fresh and affordable. It gets busy so get there early. Great place to go in summer or winter. Outdoor dining in summer. Cozy inside in the winter. Sizable entrees are great sharing. Cash only!
