Our Italian chefs use the best local and imported ingredients to create our signature dishes. In addition to our Dinner Menu, we also have a Daily Specials Menu featuring new recipes and seasonal favorites.
All of our pastas are fresh and made in house. We have several vegetarian options and can accomodate special diet restrictions. We have gluten free spaghetti as an alternative for main entrees only, not as a side dish and can prepare most meat dishes sans flour. Ask your server for details.
