Stumbled upon this restaurant while searching for something other than a chain in the neighborhood...doesn't look like much from the outside but on this Tuesday night the parking lot was packed. Lovely decor, fabulous food & wine, terrific service! Fresh homemade desserts were superb. Doesn't get better than this...

Maybe this side of the Atlantic. This place looks very unassuming in a strip plaza but has put out totally fresh, fantastic, amazing authentic Italian food for I am guessing at least 15 years, from two brothers from Italy. I have gone there since they opened. If you have the pleasure of dining here, the fish special of the day... More

I have been going to this restaurant for years. I was there today and as usual everything was great. I am reading reviews that are not good and I am confused. The owner is a outstanding chef and his food is incredibly good. I eat there at least once a week and sometimes more, if it was not excellent I... More

Horrible. You are better off with just about any frozen dinner. Service doesn't listen and slaps the wrong plates in front of you in a hurry to get you out the door so they can seat the next group. Cannot believe that anyone actually enjoys this well-worn place.

We were told this was a great place; unpretentious but fabulous so we tried it impromptu. It was delicious beyond our expectations. The mussels in red were divine, the chicken parm done to perfection. Real chicken, not pressed or reconstructed. The marinara was superb! Great service; a real down home neighborhood place; will definitely return.

We ate there with 2 other couples. Parts of the meal were very good and some of the food and service was below par. I ordered veal parmesan and it was pounded so thin, it dried out in the cooking. The other meals were good. I ordered the pasta fagioli and was delivered lentil soup (which I ate and enjoyed.).... More

Me and my family have eaten here several times over the years. We usually go for the early bird special. It comes with a soup, salad, main entree, side of pasta, and dessert, for $20! The food was delish! We had 2 orders of Salmon, and mussels over linguini. We had cheese cake and a cannoli for dessert. It was... More

The restaurant does not appreciate having customers. The food is adequate but the pricing for the quality is outrageous. They charged $4 extra to substitute a tiny plate of tasteless pasta for the 6 pieces of vegetables that accompany the small portion of food. The table next to us sent their meal back. We will not return. There are many... More

After reading the reviews here...we hoped for the best after friends invited us to join them for an early dinner here. The food, service and evening was just lovely! It is a bit like eating in an old time American/Italian Restaurant...the kind that do not exist any more except perhaps in Brooklyn. We were there at 5:30....which is very early...but... More
