Old country family dishes tweaked for the modern palate are what diners will find at this welcoming restaurant. These include fried calamari with basil aioli as well as the chicken and mushroom lasagna with Romano and mozzarella in smoked gouda cream sauce. Did we mention cappuccino pie? It would be a mistake not to. Traditional fare is served along side these-spaghetti with meatballs, pizza and biscotti-and an extensive wine list. The patio, lighted by strings of lights, offers an attractive setting while giving the kids room to stretch their legs.
