“Just South of the resort, this is a nice traditional family Italian restaurant. Easy .5 mile walk. Waiters are friendly and playful and the food is good. Ambience is very nice. White table cloth attitude yet casual to simply enjoy good food and company. The wine selection equaled the entrees in options! ”
