OK maybe I was spoiled by a former Sicilian wife but the food here is adequate. Not really Italian, but rather an American version of Italian. Portions are large, staff is good and the ambiance is kind of old New York. Nice place for dinner.

Love the garlic knot appetizers! The food was very tasty and authentic Italian. The most similar to food from Italy that I have ever tasted in this area.

Very small cozy restaurant. Make sure to make reservations they are always full. The food is outstanding, portions are large and the prices are reasonable. Perfect for romantic date night or dinner with close friends.

My boyfriend and I try to eat here at least once a month. I normally always get the same thing (stuffed shells). We love going here. The staff is always happy and helpful. The food is excellent every time we go. We always have left-overs because the portion they give you is a lot. We will definitely be back and... More

The food was good for Italian, yet the prices were high, especially for lunch. It doesn't make sense to pay $14-$17 for one person's lunch meal. I placed an order for take-out and asked for garlic bread to eat while waiting for the order. The waitress did not tell me that the two meals i ordered both had garlic bread... More

Great food. My husband and I had a lovely meal and a good time. Chicken Marsala and Penne with a salad and bread, Sausage Stromboli, Garlic Knots and a Cannoli. Bill was only $35.00 Including drinks. Everything was tasty and the server was attentive and friendly. Always like the food here. Reservations are hard to come by, but we were... More

Generous portions at unbelievable prices! Penne puttanesca is my favorite, but also love the shrimp fra diavalo and the chicken piccata. My husband favors the veal parmigiana and the lasagna. Call for reservations!

Food was so delicious! Service was exceptional! Prices were good. Everybody loved their food. If we had a complaint it would be that we couldn't eat all of our food!
