Liked-- interesting choices on the menu. I had lamb osso bucco, in a huge portion. Our friends actually shared one order of a chicken pasta dish, and there was plenty for the two of them. Disliked-- food was OK tasting, but didn't have any special "zing" that made it stand out as really memorable Italian food.

If you like gnocchi this is the place to go! Good food, good portions. The cannoli was fabulous. Very good service also!

Great ambience and friendly service, an old-time neighborhood place. Food could have been a little better, but I'd have to visit again to see if my meal was typical.

It was a little busy, they felt a little understaffed when I went in at 8pm on a Thursday night, but the food asa quick to arrive, and it was very hot. I had the Penne Calabrese and it was fantastic !! The salad was plain, very simple and too the point, but for $4.50 you wouldn't expect much more... More

We shared a few starters here, including the mussels and the garlic bread. Absolutely delicious! The prices were good too, and the staff was very friendly.

We can walk to this restaurant from our house. Lots of choices; big entrees; I order a salad and my husband orders a main dish and we share at the table. We go early so no problem getting seated. We always forget it takes 20 minutes to get the lamb osso bucco which we love. I love the wedge salad... More

While in town working, the boss took the team to what may be the best Italian Restaurant I've ever experienced. Not sure which was better, the food or the service, and considering we were a party of 15, that says something about the serving staff; they were attentive but not intrusive. From chef's salad to veal parmesan, everyone reported liking... More

Prawn Fettuccine Portofino was lovely but the Chicken Calzone was brown meat that tasted like it had freezer burn, same for the sausage and cheese risotto. Could not eat it.

Definitely have the pizza (any combinations or plain cheese) and you wont be disappointed. But come back for other menu items. I've been a customer ever since they opened. It was my first stop on the way home from a 6-week hospitalization.
