Unexpected great Italian

We didn't know what to expect from this restaurant when we drove up to it. It's in a strip plaza hidden among other stores. It was very busy with people waiting for take outs and also waiting for seats. We were seated quickly. The decor is very simple. The service was very pleasant. They brought... read more

We happened on this restaurant and were more then happy we did. We did not have reservations but the nice hostess said they would be happy to seat us in no more than 10 minutes and we could order a beverage while we waited. Our wait was short and provided us the opportunity to peruse the orders others were enjoying.... More

Loved the Stuffed Shells on the special list and the Salad Caprese. The service was great. Any wait staff that passed by and saw we might need something stopped and asked.

We enjoyed a pleasant meal here. The eggplant parmesan was delicious with the eggplant sliced very thinly. We took half our meals home because servings were so big.

Veal was a little tough and maybe too thick, could have been pounded to tenderize? Anyway, sides good, service was excellent with an northeast fella that was having a... More

How do you know if a restaurant is any good? Well if you need a reservation for the weekend then chances are the place is pretty good. We expected Sunday night to be a slow night but I was glad our group of 6 had a reservation as we met another group on the way out that didn't have a... More

Their food was superb, good portions & decently priced. Simply the best pizza I've had since leaving NY16 yrs. ago. After speaking to the owner, I learned they were family of the voted #1 pizza place on Long Island ( King Umbertos ). I recognized the taste immediately. Place crowded all 3 nights we were there & Justly so. HIGHLY... More

I found this place online and looked up the menu. Our server was excellent and very helpful as I was trying to decide between 2 dishes. We had caprese, spaghetti carbonara and picatta as well as an out of this world ice cream desert, trufato I think. Absolutely wonderful and very excellent carbonara full of real bacon.

We were seated promptly. The restaurant was crowded for a Friday night. We ordered the stuffed mushrooms and it came drowned in some kind of cheese/vodka sauce which was bizarre. I ordered the calamari marinara. The ratio of calamari to sauce was off. Enough sauce for 2 dishes. Calamari was rubbery, flavorless. My friend ordered eggplant parm and said it... More
