Great lunch selections and prices can't be beat.

My wife and I went at about 12:30 on a Monday. It was packed. We had a 10 minute wait which was not bad, considering we did not have a reservation. People with reservations were ushered right to a table with no wait. So make a reservation if going at prime lunch times. My wife ordered off the... read more

Okay, our last visit was not the best review; however, our friends invited us to join them for holiday dinner so we did. First, manager did not have our reservation; however, she made every accommodation to make certain we were seated promptly and right next to Santa Claus! Service was very good and timely. My flatbread was superb and I... More

As an Italian girl, I take my food very seriously. A friend suggested this place for lunch so we went. It is an intimate dining area... Perfect sized booths with a cozy feel. The food was out of this world. I kicked myself for not having tried this place sooner. All the food is prepared by Francesco himself. His parents... More

Excellent food, best chicken parm in town, great service, prices, beautiful decor. You cannot beat their chicken parm weekday lunch that includes salad for just under $10.00. Very happy to see them so busy.

This is a great restaurant for Italian families to enjoy. The only Italian restaurant our whole Italian family will actually eat at, enjoy and give rave reviews. The chef is charismatic, the private room is great for a group. Outside seating is fun. The restaurant can be loud, but you get to see everyone cooking. The wait staff is attentive... More

Had angel hair with bolognese and meatballs. Pasta and meatballs cooked perfectly. Meatballs were tender and flavorful. Friends had chicken cacciatore and fettuccine, and we're very happy. Waiter was very attentive, but not a pest. Even after we paid the bill, he was refilling water. Great atmosphere. Would definitely go back.

Food was good as always however service was poor on this particular evening. We felt rushed even though the tables were not turning. Spouse made reservation for birthday dinner which was not acknowledged whatsoever. It will be a while before we return. This restaurant needs to pay attention to returning customers.

Food is delicious. Have been there several times and usually have very good experiences. Last time the service wasn't so great but it won't stop us from going back.
