From the greetings thru the dinner an ending with desserts, owners ans staff pay attention to details, making sure that you are well taken care. Wine list offers nice selections. Very accomodating with preparations5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMCafe 2825 Sinful!!Lets just say it was very sinful.....the foreplay began with fresh Asparagus (slightly breaded and sauteed) with Fresh Tomato Sauce and melted Mozzarella, followed by a slight kiss of Anchovy paste on the romaine hearts Caesar, just enough to be slightly on the salty side, then it just gets deep with a Wild Mushroom light Cream Sauce with very wide and tender homemade egg noodles. The climax for me was a moist rich orange ricotta cake.....Oh God.....Oh, forgot to mention that of course this was accompanied by a very nice bottle Italian red. I had to vow not to return to this restaurant this evening again. The temptation is too much to handle!!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMDo not miss this place!While looking for places to eat while on a weekend trip I wanted to stay away from the casino glitz and fake lights. I found this restaurant and was not disappointed. Dad was cooking. Mom was hostess and working the bar. Daughter was our waitress. She asked Dad to suggest a wine from the few I was having a hard time deciding between. He was dead on! The food was great! The artichoke was as advertised. It took a little work but worth the effort. Sunday Gravy dinner was awesome. Real nice sauce! My wife could only finish less than half of her dinner it was so big. Top notch food! Top notch service!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesomeParking a little tough. But food was excellent. I will return to this establishment very soon.
