Went here for dinner 2 times in August and the second time we actually decided to go down to AC for the night because of our meal at Cafe 2825 and it didn't disappoint again. The only complaint I would have are that the tables are a little tight to each other but don't let that deter you. Had the... More

This seemed to be filled with locals, which is a nice change of pace from the tourist crowds at most of the casino restaurants. Small place, great wine list and good food.

We come from a 60 year old family owned Italian restaurant business. So when were on vacation, were always looking for a good Italian meal. We were greeted by the owner when we walked in. Her husband, the chef, was cooking in the back. The appetizers, drinks, and dinner were top notch! Delicious flavor and great portion size. The pasta... More

Very good indeed! The food was authentic, fresh and expertly prepared. The owner Joe is warm and welcoming and personally visited our table to ensure that we were enjoying our meal. Enjoying was an understatement- we were in food heaven! The recommended wine from Montepulciano was superb and quite reasonably priced. The stuffed artichokes were expertly seasoned and prepared.

Delicious food, great service, excellent atmosphere and a fantastic birthday dinner with my wife. I've seen lot of reviews here for this restaurant and I think people that put up a bad review are in the minority. The restaurant I experienced was worthy of the #1 rating here. For an authentic Italian restaurant, it's going to be hard to beat... More

Favorite mains were the veal chop parm and the blueberry tilapia, but literally not a speck of food remained on anyones plate afterwards. Same with the tiramisu, canoli, and real italian cheesecake for dessert! We genuinely felt we had found the best restaurant in A.C. (and we've been to plenty over the years, including ones in basements with impossible reservations:).... More

This is a true italian restaurant and def not a "pizzeria".; Their selection is wonderful and the entrees are very good. I kind of wish I had ordered what my son got because his entree was out of this world. I ordered linguine and clams in white sauce which was not as good as I'd hoped. I order that dish... More

Very nice inside, service was nothing to brag about. We asked for a side of pasta, got about 8 noodles on a salad plate and paid a ridiculous amount of money for it. It was fantastic pizzeria food, delicious at the price of an upscale restaurant.
