Good Food

Went with husband a few times a month. Never had a bad meal, but have had better. Neighborhood place but very comfortable. They don't give enough pasta on the plates!

I had dinner outside with a friend on a lovely Friday evening. They do not take reservations for two people, but we arrived around 6:45 and only had to wait a few minutes for a table outside. Service was friendly, and relatively efficient, except when we were ready to pay for our meals it seemed like no one was paying... More

I have been here for dessert with another couple as well as sat on the patio for dinner with my family including young children. The food was outstanding. We ordered an eggplant appetizer and I couldn't get enough. Great entrees and pizza as well. Loved sitting on the patio. Very clean and well kept!

Met up with friends and could not have had a more relaxing and enjoyable time. The food was the hi light. The Calamari was done perfectly. But on the adventurous side the stuffed squash flowers were very tasty. From the perfectly done lamb chops, to the veal Amici, the tiger prawn and swordfish every thing was done as we liked... More

Sure, it looks just like a neighborhood Italian restaurant from the sidewalk. But hiding inside is a chef with incredible recipes and skills! Saturday specials were all wonderfully prepared and presented

Came for dinner with family on Saturday (6 people). Despite having a reservation, our table was still not ready. We were crowded into a too small table (for 4 with chairs jammed at each end. We order an appetizer of calamari for the table. Calamari was just ok; it was lightly fried but with no other seasoning and came with... More

1st time visiting. Food was OK. Place was FREEZING!!! I left with the chills. Ate with my coat on, not very comfortable. Bread was very good, dinner was Saltimbocca. Good amount of prosuttio, not enough chicken. Would have to really think about going back again.

Menu is reliable and unpretentious, staff is efficient and professional. Bread was warm but tasteless. Salads and desserts were very good and entree portions were ample. Chicken parm always a winner.Wall between former bar area and front seating area is a mistake and detracts from ambiance. Would appreciate beer list being available in the dining room.

This is a regular place for our family. Mostly reliable food and service. Since it's expansion the place is great to stop in for a drink and mingle. Menu is creative and varied. Portions are acceptable....not too small or excessively wasteful. The eggplant parm is out of this world, and large enough to split to take home for another meal.... More
