Very unfortunate, I have dine with you many times an this time the quality of the food was very poor, my pasta was extremely salty and the shrimp were way over cooked (like rubber).

Great vibe, excellent friendly staff, good food, great overall experience. We were new in town and got great advice from servers and hostesses on other good spots to try. Couldn’t have been happier. Thx Kevin for the great service at our table!

Appetizer: Ordered the meatball appetizer, the meatball was ok tasting, and it didn't seem fully cooked. It was pretty dark in the restaurant, but I still could see and taste the middle wasn't fully cooked.

The sauce that came with the meatball however was amazing. They obviously make this sauce from scratch. I loved it so much, I used it to pour it over my entree.

Entree: Pepperoni and sausage pizza, the pizza was good, not great. However, the meatball tomato sauce I used to pour on top of the pizza made it great!

Desert: The bread pudding, again nothing to write home about, it was ok.
