Awesome

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!

We've been to this little restaurant a few times and have never gotten a bad meal or service. I believe the owners are Italian, so they know how to cook true Italian food and we were told by the waitress that each and every sauce is prepared at time of ordering. The food is always excellent and the restaurant has... More

This is a very small restaurant and you might need a reservation to get in. They close relatively early, it says 9 pm but they frown on you if you show up after 8. The serving sizes are very big. It is all incredibly delicious so good luck trying to decide what to order. The owner/chef is from Italy so... More

Passed through town and went here because of the past reviews. We had the meat balls for an appitizer and pizza for our main course. Both were cooked just right and very tasty. The waitress was very friendly and a joy to talk to. Would definitely return.

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
