My wife & I had dinner here on a Tuesday night. The location is excellent, atmosphere charming and the food outstanding! Bread sticks before the meal were to die for! I had linguini and white clam sauce – al dente and with a baker’s dozen clams! My wife had the Waterfront Salad. Both dishes were outstanding!!! The service was friendly and prompt. We’d highly recommend this restaurant if you like authentic Italian food.
