My favorite Local Italian Restaurant. The owner Maura prepared another wonderful meal. Took two friends who live locally who had never been there. They loved it! Maura, although busy in the kitchen preparing the meals made time to come out and sing in her angelic voice to the patrons. Always a treat to eat here. Recommend it highly. 5 Stars!

This place is away from the downtown crush in a strip mall, so parking is easy and that's a plus. The entrance room had a faux fireplace going, which made the tiny room uncomfortably hot, on a day when the temperature was near 90. What was that about? Inside, we asked to have the fan turned down, as it was... More

Large selection of Italian food including baked, pastas, meats, seafood. We had the eggplant parmesan and veal picata. Both dishes were good. Fresh warm bread & 2 sides for each meal. Seemed reasonably priced ($18-$24 for dinner entre) at least for the beach area. The ambiance is nothing special - tables, chairs, and dim lighting. The service was prompt and... More

I love this place, however, every time I go, I say I am going to try something different, but then I change my mind and get my stand by which is Fettuccine Alfredo with Shrimp, it is so good. You get at least 6 large shrimp and and bunch of little ones. The Alfredo is def homemade. The restaurant is... More

Had dinner there last night after so many raves about how good this restaurant was. We were sorely disappointed. It was just an average restaurant, with a rating of "C". Nothing there to rave about except that the portions were large, although that is not a good thing these days. The service was just adequate, nothing special. My wife had... More

Wonderful family run small restaurant where you feel welcomed whether it's your first or fiftieth visit.Nnightly Italian specials are great. During season it's best to make a reservation. Sometimes if you are lucky, at the end of the evening, the owner will take a request for her to sing, either Broadway, opera or pop. A voice like an angel and... More

We just returned back from dinner from Villa Sorrento and decided never to return back. We had eaten there many times and always discussed how good our meal was. Well tonight it is a different story. I am married to an Italian and I myself is Italian so we know GOOD Italian food. We ordered calamari and it was horrible.... More

The food at this resturant is amazing . The atmosphere is great. The owner sings songs to everyone in the resturant. Looking forward to my next visit back to this authentic Italian resturant.

This is a good place to relax and have a nice meal. Leave your cell phone in the car and really enjoy the company of a friend or loved one. The atmosphere here is terrific and the Italian food is authentic. If the owner breaks out in song, join in! Locals eat here.
