Our focus is on a total quality dining experience: in the food we offer, its preparation, and in the service we provide…Quality knows no shortcuts.
Bread Our house-made garlic knots are fresh from the oven
Olives A taste of the old country, our olive selection of kalamata and colossal Greek are hand-picked. You’ll find this delectable assortment enhances many of our dishes.
Olive Oil The first press of the olives provides the best extra virgin oil. Derived from selected olives grown in the sun of the Mediterranean, lightly flavored with a delicate fragrance. Olive oil contains no cholesterol.
Cheese We use only the finest imported gorgonzola, parmesan and romano cheese. The reggiano parmesan is aged for texture and flavor. Cheeses are used in concert with dishes to enhance the offerings, not to appropriate the product.
Pasta Our house-made angel hair, spaghetti and linguine are a product of the finest flours available.
Sauces Marinara, marsala, piccata and saltimbocca sauces are all made in-house along with our special sauces of the day.
Veal We use USDA Prime grade Midwestern veal top sirloin.
