The bread and desserts are baked in-house daily. The dinner menu includes traditional courses with selections like Chicken Piccatta, Osso Buco, Veal Marsala to a modern twist on classic Tuscan coastal cuisine with Sea Scallops-Mediterranean and Shrimp, Clams & Mussels Scusa! Our Italian menu focuses on the traditional, regional and coastal dishes of Italy. Let our experienced servers recommend a pairing to delight the senses.
