I was here on Saturday night. I know that there have been mixed reviews on this board. I also agree with previous posters that you will not get an inventive or creative meal here. That having been said, for what it is, a reasonably priced, mostly red sauce italian restaurant, we had a very good meal. We started with an excellent fried calamari appetizer with a forgetable basket of italian bread. I had chicken parmigiana which was 2 large, thinly sliced breasts, which were appropriately crisp and only $12.95. I had enough for a second meal the next night. I thought it was excellent. My wife had eggplant parm, and the other couple had veal saltimbocca and veal piccata. Everybody thoroughly enjoyed their meals. We also ordered 2 glasses of wine and 1 beer. The total for the meal with tip and tax per couple was $55 each. All and all, not a special place to go, but a good, reasonably priced meal. By the way, we were able to be seated at 7:30 without a wait.
