Here's what a guest has to say about the restaurant:

The food is wonderful, especially their Sunday Brunch. Try their "Atomic Muffins", you will want to comeback for more. Their wine list is the most comprehensive north of Los Angeles. Dave & Edie, the owners keep a watchful eye and the service is excellent.

This guest highly recommends the scallops and dessert:

The scallops were exquisite, and the rack of lab was to die for. We had an avocado salad, with blue corn chips - very nicely done. And, the desert, well... coffee ice cream on top a meringue base, coated with praline sauce and pecans - what a nice finish.

The place has been highly recommended on TripAdvisor:

The place has got great reviews:

It's a simple menu of "old-school" Italian-American specialties: Hand-tossed pizzas, freshly prepared pastas, all the expected salads - and a strawberry shortcake that seems to be a local legend. Coke. Beer. Their own wine. All good stuff.

Please note that the restaurant only accepts cash:

Checkered tablecloths, home-style Italian food and huge portions. It's not haute cuisine, but it's fun and memorable. We were there in the fall, but I can just imagine how nice it would be to sit outside on a summer night. It is cash only - so come prepared.

Here's a review:

The food is absolutely excellent, and the prices are reasonable for the quality. I had the venison, which was tender and very interestingly complimented with a mole type sauce. The service was great and they have a fabulous wine list.

Their menus are in French though:


One of their greatest points is their very-good desert menu. It may help to have a person in your party that speaks French, as their menue is mostly in French.
