“Took my mom for Mother’s Day. It was fantastic. If this restaurant was on the west side in Manhattan there would be a line out the door. Excellent, staff, truly a delight for a change when you eat out. The food was tremendous and the cannoli’s amazing. I am going back for my anniversary.
Thank you all for a great experience. It is becoming harder to find good service , quality food and a good value combined these days in CT.

I have no idea how they gathered such an enthusiastic staff but that made the experience all the more memorable.”
