At one time this was a very good restaurant. Not anymore. The food is not nearly as good as it used to be. I had zuppa di pesce which was merely pasta with shrimp and clams. Very bland. My wife had risotto which see said was good. The last few times we have been here, the service has been terrible.... More

Our first time trying this restaurant. It was our Anniversary and we wanted to try a different place to dine. We were very disappointed. We got there early for a 5:30 dinner. Our waitress was very nice and when I asked for Eggplant Parm. that was not on the menu, she said yes they could make it. Our house salad... More

First visit had pumpkin ravioli which was very good. So came back again. Started with the broccoli soup which was bland. We had the veal piccata & veal parmigiana. It was just okay. Felt very rushed. It's a small place and felt like they just wanted the table.

One of my favorite local restaurants. It is a small place with great Italian food. Their ravioli is one of their best dishes, in my opinion. Worth a try!

Wonderful family restaurant in an inviting and warm setting. The menu is versatile with seasonal specials. The difficulty I have when I eat there is trying to decide what to order! Full wine list and wonderful desserts if you have room after consuming the generous portions. Attentive wait staff and reasonable pricing.

Found this hidden gem the other evening. It's located in a strip mall. Food is excellent. Had the beef braciole, which is one of their specialities The rest of our party all enjoyed veal parmigiana. Portions were well sized. Complimentary bruschetta and frequently replenished bread with either olive oil and/or butter. Nick, the owner, is very hospitable. Enjoyed the mussels... More

The owner has a great memory besides being a good chef. We walked in for my daughter's birthday dinner... she always picks this place and only 13 years old. He automatically said Gnocchi. She loves their gnocchi. Every time we go the food is always good and consistent. Only disappointment was that they were supposed to give her a birthday... More
