The pasta was absolutely outstanding: homemade, authentic, right texture and portion, and delicious. We ordered the gnocchi with the 4 cheese sauce and a pomodoro ravioli with spinach and ricotta stuffing. The 4 cheese sauce was reminiscent of a mac & cheese thick béchamel-based sauce...More

Fairly small restaurant on the outskirts of town. We had the home made chicken ravioli and the salmon. Both were delicious, especially the ravioli. I highly recommend the tiramasu, if you have room for dessert.
