Italian Restaurant

“Enjoy wonderfully authentic food and ambiance in the main dining room, casual bar or the warm inviting patio. Leone D'Arcangelo and his family look forward to welcoming you to the restaurant. This is a great place for a romantic dinner. Generally does not require a reservation as it is a large restaurant. Across from the movie theaters in River Village Center.”

Place of Worship
“This place is free to go to and you don't have to be Buddhist. It's a beautiful place and you can meditate or take in the views and two days a week the offer free like a meditation (how to meditate basically) sessions and then kind of a 30 min Buddhist 101 class. It's not religious, but more spiritual. The views are spectacular & there are garden areas to wander & a giant Budda, but be mindful there monks living there. People are extremely friendly. Also there is a super cool 100 year old live giant tortoise there & lots of little turtle statues & someone said that turtles in life are a reminder to slow down in life, to stop and look around, and just be present. I liked that.”
