Go just to chat with the owner (then stay for the food)!
My family and I went early one evening to dine and were seated promptly. It's not a huge building, and it was filling up by the time we were finishing, so may be best to reserve a table if you want to avoid a wait. There was a modest, but lovely, selection of dinner items, plus the nightly special available. We had the special: pasta primavera, eggplant parmesan and chicken parmesan. After we placed our orders, the owner (I assumed he's the owner) came out and made the rounds to all the tables. He was delightful. He asked us about what we ordered and gave us details about the food and probably hung out for about 5 minutes. He did this at every table and for those who hadn't ordered, he was giving suggestions. We had free bread before the meals and it was warm and chewy. Both the parmesan dishes were fantastic. I found the primavera to be too oily for my taste, but the pasta was well cooked and it was loaded with fresh vegetables. We were too full to finish our meals or get dessert, so ordering a dinner to share to leave room might be a good idea.
