Wonderful, Truly Authentic Italian Food

Wonderful is such an apt description. This is a small, very comfortable family run restaurant (28 years!) that has the ambience, food and service down pat. We sat at the bar and were waited on the wife of the husband-wife team that have owned the restaurant forever. Gracious and friendly. Wait... read more

We heard so many good things about this restaurant and I was so looking forward to it. We ordered the fresh mozzarella made at the table and the caesar salad which were both delicious, but so overly priced. We all had the specials and while I can say that they were good, there was nothing special about them, I thought... More

Went last night with my family, and was delighted to find this hidden gem. Totally old Skool eyetalian menu with all the favorites. Family owned and operated and nothing was a problem. Dad ordered off the menu and was treated to an excellent Italian classic. Arrive was excellent. The only thin missing was a visit from dean Martin.

I had wanted to eat at this place for a very long time but never found an opportunity to do so until now. I always picture what appeared to be the quintessential stuffed artichoke picture on TripAdvisor. My party of three started were started with half a small loaf of crispy, light but hearty bread with olive oil and some... More

My husband and I made reservations for Café 2825 during Father's Day weekend and we're so glad we did! As soon as we walked inside this charming little restaurant, we knew that we had chosen the right place to dine. He and I were seated quickly and despite the restaurant being a little crowded, it still felt as if we... More

This is the third time I have come to this restaurant and have never been disappointed. I had the shrimp and scallop special and my husband had the pork milanese special. The fact that the owners are there, on site, to greet and speak with you is a very special touch, I think. The service is great-there when you need... More

We ordered Clams Casino that were prepared to perfection and the toppings were finely chopped. Next we enjoyed a tomato salad that was prepared with mozzarella that was so delicious I was thrilled it was tossed in light dressing. Our main course was flounder francaise. A hearty portion, enough for two to share. I was astonished to find a restaurant... More

AMAZING PLACE!!!! At first I was a little taken back as to the charge for a table. Even when I called to see about moving it earlier I did not get anyone-thought odd! We arrived very early for our reservation. Met one of the owners/bartender & we order cocktails-place was on the loud side-as there was a party of men... More
