This is a great Italian restaurant and is busy constantly. Best bet is to call for a reservation if possible for an evening meal. That's not really necessary for lunch. The calzones and stromboli are huge, and the pizza is really good. My husband loves the eggplant parmesan, and I love the cavatelli with broccoli and chicken marsala. Everything is... More

I've eaten at this restaurant twice now and both experiences were excellent. The food was excellent and the portions were huge. My first experience was at lunch and I didn't need a reservation. We received prompt service. My second experience was an evening out with my husband for our anniversary. We did make reservations as it was a weekend. We... More

Does not get any better than this family run restraunt in Burlington. The owner, Carlo and his staff, did a fantastic job. The food was out of this world great. I watched him cook our meal. Everything was made to order fresh. We had almost every dish family style. My favorite was the Veal Piccata. Try the bread knots for... More

Went here for our one year anniversary. My wife and I both had the lasagna and it was fabulous. The portion was so large that neither of us were able to eat it all. Service was a bit on the slow side. We received our bread almost at the same time that we received our entree. Despite that, it was... More

My husband and I consider this our favorite spot to eat. No food is ever disappointing. The prices are good and portions are large. The thing we love most is the atmosphere. You must have reservations since the dining space is so small, but it makes the atmosphere nice. Always get the garlic knots!!!

In a nutshell, the food wasn't bad, but it wasn't spectacular either, but you sure got a bunch of it. Most of the entrees come with salad / pene or spaghetti / and table bread - which happens to be garlic bread. I had Chicken Flourentina, which was two decent sized chicken breasts served on its own plate with my... More

A nice little Italian restaurant with excellent food. Prices are reasonable. The restaurant is small and a bit cramped. Make sure to get reservations several days in advance if you're going on a weekend.
