“Consistently great food. Located just off the Main Street, but enter the building and it’s like a hidden city restaurant. Serving Italian style food, with homemade pasta, gourmet pizza, risotto as well as great Steak, duck and pork. They use locally caught crayfish (lobster) and fish in their daily specials. Open every night, dinner served until 9pm. Great wine list and cocktails too. ”
