I've driven by this restaurant hundreds of times, and I always figured how good could it be, being in a small town, with the general standard of food quality in the area being quite low. I was delightfully surprised. The interior was very cozy. The food was amazing. I am vegetarian, and had plenty of options. Dessert too was over... More

My wife and I celebrated our 31st anniversary there last month. We had intended to try someplace new, but it was booked for a private party. So we returned to our "old favorite", and wound up wondering why we had ever planned a different destination in the first place. As usual, the food was excellent in both quality and quantity....

All recipes are distinctly unique yet old world. I'd presume that these meals have been passed down for generations. I had the chicken rollatini which came in the best marsala sauce I've had in over 10 years and the wife had a delicious lasagna. The restaurant itself was very traditional yet not pretentious or fake in any way. It'd be... More

We took dear friends for a special thank you dinner. Although it was a Saturday night I'd failed to make reservations. The staff quickly arranged a table it an alcove -- very wonderful for conversation. The menue was so extensive that each of us (5) selected something different. One of our guests was vegetarian and easily found something meeting her... More

This was a cozy little place with the best Italian food. The service was great and the atmosphere relaxing. The stuffed Salmon was the best I ever had.

I am an Italian from New York, so I know good Italian food. I found out the owner is from Rhode Island, so he too knows good Italian. The portion sizes were large, you definitely get your moneys worth. The homemade clam chowder was delicious, as well as our entrees, and tiramisu. The stuffed mushroom appetizer was a bit lackluster,... More
