Great family Italian Restaurant

Great ambiance, excellent food, and a wonderful staff. The owner, John, makes you feel like you are one of the family and checks with every table to make sure everything is to your liking. Great place to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries or just a night out!

We shared a large (actually huge) Caesar salad with loads of anchovies and the veal ravioli in a Rosemary brown sauce topped with portobello mushrooms and goat cheese. Fortunately the restaurant serves wonderful bread to sop up the delicious gravy. The staff is very friendly and attentive, like a neighborhood bistro. We enjoyed eating in the atrium with the snow...

Their Pork Osso Bucco is better than the one I had at Arthur Ave in New York City when I had dinner there last December for my birthday. Their fried calamari is the best of all the restaurants I have been to. Even better than their sister restaurant. The place is small, but the service is great. I really do... More
