Good Italian Food

Good food, good portions at a decent price. The pasta was done just right, and the marinara sauce was outstanding. Had other dishes there too, such as fish and chicken, and they were outstanding.

Staff very friendly. Pleasant décor. Mostly senior citizens for Early Bird specials. Dining room cleared out by 8pm. Garlic bread so many talk about was never offered or delivered. Water and wine was never refilled after initial pouring. We refilled our own wine. Salads were room temperature. Did not have first choice for entrée. Entrees not Hot. Food was good,... More

This was the second visit, this time was for the "early bird", the menu was limited, the usual Italian dishes that the "non' Italians/NYers enjoy, eg chicken ptarmigan, ugh! Pretty place, very nice staff.

The restaurant is attractive, the food was pretty good and there were no issues with the service. When I got the bill, a 15% TIP was already added! I don't know about you, but I consider tipping OPTIONAL. On the plus side, the fact that they do this is clearly noted on the bill AND a restaurant employee verbally reminded... More

Decor is more interesting than the standard Italian fare but locals keep returning because the owners are very civic minded. For a small dinner party of 8-10 you can reserve an intimate private room.

Great for a date night. Great service. We like to go for our anniversary. The food is amazing. Homemade pasta and sauces. The garlic bread they bring you is to die for!

Nice dining room with a beautiful ornate cappuccino machine next to the wall.. Truly a piece of art! Our waiter told us it was brought over from the opera house in Milan. The crusty bread was a good sign of the food to come. Appetizers are great size. I had the eggplant rollatini, thin sliced and nice marinara to top.... More

We were here December 9th for a private function, a friends's wedding. The restaurant handled all the requests of the bride and groom and decorated the place nicely. We were here the day before as my husband was the Minister so we got a chance to see the staff setting up and working on the day of the wedding. The... More
