Food and atmosphere is always good, however this last time prices did not add up with what we received. Bronzino was delicious, but it was one very thin, small filet, served with one fingerling potato cut in half, and one small tomato cut in half for about $38. Are you kidding? 2 glasses of pinot noir were $40, one of... More

Closed on Monday & Tuesday. Always go for their Wine Down Wednesday. At the wine bar no reservations needed , small plates, reasonably priced glasses of wine. Nice place to relax before going back to casino. Always have very good experience with staff.

So not worth the money. Slow service, ok food but the area has much better Italian restaurants. Try Angeloni's or Angelo's, Chef Vola, or anywhere outside the casinos.

Everything we ordered was delicious and using fresh ingredients. Not that creative (since this place is in the Borgata - they need to make sure every type of people can eat and enjoy their food instead of making sure to please foodies), but I totally recommend this place out of other casino restaurants. I will definitely come back. Service was... More

Having recent visited Rome, the food at this restaurant tasted extremely authentic. The stuffed squid was amazing and the buffalo mozarella was so good. The service was good and the ambiance was perfect. It was just what we needed for a romantic night out.

This is a must try restaurant. The atmosphere truly made you feel like you were in Italy! I had the penne with beef short ribs and it was to die for - if I wasn't so full, I could have eaten another bowl. Compliments to chef(s), wait staff and owner. I will be back for sure!

The wait staff is friendly and helpful - and very Italian. The service was excellent. Try the Veal OSSO BUCCO Ravioli - it is outstanding.
