Couple Dinner

What a delightful place. Food good and portions are huge. Wait staff very good and knowledgable. They have really big round tables that are so nice for several couples to get together. They seat ten. Noise level is acceptable.

First time here. Huge menu and even larger portions. Excellent service. Everyone was very pleased with their meal. Only criticism is that they offer but one selection of wine by the glass. The Chardonay was from Argentina and very thin.

This place never disappoints. We dine here every year the evening before we head for home. Reservations are a good idea especially in high season. My husband and I have tried may dishes from the menu and are always happy with our choices. The wait staff is exceptional as well. You can order and take out if you like which... More

This is the place to go if you are looking for authentic Italian food. The owner, Joe, is the best. He is always on premises and works hard to make the food the best. We enjoyed our waiter, Elvis, too!

4 of us had an ok dinner here. Service was very good and a very happy server waited on us. Wine list is heavy on reds and skimpy for whites. We enjoyed our super Tuscan red at 34$ a good buy. Caesar salads were nothing remarkable but ok. House mixed green salad the same. Baby clams , garlic and pasta... More

After reading good reviews, we looked forward to a great dinner. My Eggplant Rollatini was bland and tasteless. Sauce on the spaghetti was just OK. My husband said the meatballs on his spaghetti were rather hard and tough. Our dining companions were happier with their choices (pasta Mario and the Italian Sausage special). The garlic buns were OK, but tasted... More

My Fiancé and I wanted a nice Italian dinner. We found this adorable spot and glad we did. Food and service was fantastic. The only reason I rate this a 4 star, is because my meal was a little on the spicy side, almost too spicy to eat but it was delicious. Overall our experience was great and we'll be... More
