“Family owned and delicious meals. I've never had a meal that was remotely disappointing. If you're by yourself, the bar is a great option with good drinks and old time movies playing. Plus, you'll feel completely comfortable sitting there if you're a woman on your own. My favorite is the Eggplant Parmesan which has converted many a skeptic!”
