Italian Restaurant

“The best Italian food in town. It definitely isn't a place you'd just stumble upon and don't let the location alarm you. Just GO! We have had them cater a few parties for us and I've never been disappointed. Make reservations if you can. It's more of a dressy casual place (white tablecloths) and the food is top notch.”
