"If you are looking for a complete Italian dinner which include antipasti plate, sour or salad~ Esposto"s is your Go-To Restaurant. Wonderful selections, evening specials and fabulous service can be found at Esposto's! This restaurant is a deli by day and serves dinner at nite . Lunch can be enjoyed outside in the front patio seating area under umbrellas. Our dinner was delicious and the service was great! Also serves very reasonable house wine by the glass!"
