Lasagna portion was small for the price
They should offer Macri’s bakery items on the menu

This was a dinner to celebrate the birthday of a friend. The food, service, and ambience were perfect for the occasion. We especially liked the tables being spaced nicely apart and our server, Angela, being attentive but not bothersome and not rushing us.

All six of us had an outstanding meal. We had homemade pasta, fish, and chicken. Each dish was delicious and so was the dinner salad and fresh vegetables.
We also had four wonderful desserts.
We certainly will go back.
Our server Audriana was a family member and perfection!!

The graduation ceremony ran a little long so we arrived 15 minutes late. They were able to seat us right away. Dinner, appetizers and dessert were all great.

We had a very nice time. Everything from the appetizers to the desserts was delicious. Service was very friendly. The only minor detractor was the noise level which made it hard to converse with everyone at our table for 7.

All was good. Watch wine price. We thought we ordered a $35 wine. Turned out to be $135!!! It was small print & not real clear. It was grouped with wines that cost $30 so you wouldn’t think there would be one for $100 more.
But otherwise we had a great dinner!

Great Italian food. All made homemade onsite. Server was friendly and very educated on the menu. My husband got the lobster ravioli- just awesome. I had a shrimp pasta dish, also yummy. Please keep supporting this great local spot!
