My brother snd his wife have raved about this restaurante for over a year now. My brother suggested we eat there to celebrate my mother's 78 birthday, and we agreed. We were very excited to try this restaurant because we had heard so many good things about it from my brother and his family. What a disappointment! I ordered the... More

Dark and cozy, perfect for date night, or whenever you want to linger over a traditional Italian-American meal. Everything is cooked to order, and delicious.we had the Linguine with Pesto an Mascarpone, Chicken with vegetables and pasta in garlic sauce, and linguini pescatore. The seafood was' done perfectly, and just slightly spicy. We'll be back!

I attended a luncheon for our schools fundraising. We had a salad and main dish. Main dish was very large for lunch menu. Most ladies took half home with them. I am not sure of their price, but food was good.

We went to dinner here last night with friends and had a wonderful meal. It is only my third time in the last year, but I have found it to be consistent. I had the veal Marsala and it was excellent. Everyone enjoyed what they had and we had a very good Brunelo to go with the meal. The owner... More

It's not comfortable being the only sub-average review. But you have to call 'em as you find 'em. And there isn't much to find here. The problem with Mascarpone's isn't one thing, it's a number of things. To start with it's poorly signed and difficult to locate. The mapping services have it on the wrong side of the street, and...

My husband and I stopped in here early on a Friday night after hearing good things. We especially love family run spots and were excited to try someplace new. The restaurant was fairly busy when we first walked in, but there didn't appear to be a host or hostess . No problem. It was quaint. Finally a very frazzled looking... More

This is real Italian food served by an Italian staff. Expect gentle European service. AKA, You won't be in and out in 45 min. Portions are large especially on the pasta dishes.

I had a friend invite me to this hidden gem in Orange and I immediately got hooked on their food. From appetizers (mozzarella, calamari, & soup) to the dessert, this place does NOT leave you disappointed. You will not find the quality and quantity of this type of food at any commercialized/corporate restaurant (a.k.a. The Olive Garden). You must check... More

This place has been around for 20+ years. Good food and the owners work the resturant. Service if great, good wine selection and food prices are very reasonable. The cheesecake and other deserts are a good finishing touch. Nice and mellow atmosphere.

We had never been here, and like using our entertainment discounts to try new places, so this is where we went. The employees were very attentive but the italian accent on the server was so heavy we didn't understand a lot of what he said. We put pieces together and got the gist of it. Room was way too dark,... More
