We had a lovely dinner here on a beautiful evening. The service was excellent.. Pleasant and efficient. Food was very good. Best of all is to eat outside overlooking the water. Almost like being in Sorrrento.

I'm 100% Italian and I know good Italian food. The restaurant had great atmosphere. The staff was excellent and accommodating. The food was prepared well and the portions were good. The roving opera singer was very good and not obtrusive. It was truly the best meal of our trip! Bravo!

We read mixed reviews both on Trip Advisor and Yelp and thought we would give it a try. The location was very convenient and the staff friendly and fairly attentive; however, the food was way below average for the price. Our menu selections included: lasagna, which was dry with bland seasonings and not much cheese; Frutti Di Mare, which included... More

Very good Italian food & feel like you're sitting in my old, Italian grandmother's house. Live music was a nice touch as well.

Family of four with daughters 10 and 7. After a long day at the park, we started with their cheapest bottle of Chardonnay which was $34. It was quite drinkable, and we did. We were brought a generous basket of fresh, warm bread which was very good. My wife had gnocchi with meat ragu sauce. It was good, but we... More

This place sets out its stall to be a classy family Italian....and rather misfires. The overall environment which is, of course, 100% fake, is pleasant enough but the over loud musicians that prowl around the room, adding a faux authenticity to the proceedings should be asked to turn the volume down. At the astronomical prices charged (believe me - you... More
