Authentic Italian Restaurant

This place has fresh delicious food every time. The marinara sauce is delicious, the fresh pasta is cooked al dente and the arancini are wonderful and taste authentic, definitely worth a try!

Great food and atmosphere. This is as close to eating in Italy without going there. Every time I have eaten there has been wonderful.

I was very disappointed in the veal parm I got there on Saturday. I was awaiting a return trip from two years ago when I had one of the best veal parm's in my life, but the last one was not good. Maybe they changed chef's or had a bad lot. I will try them again to see if it... More

We enjoyed our dinner, which included bruschetta, veal piccata, and linguini and clams. The menu offerings were traditional italian and the food was very good. The service was great, very friendly and attentive. The ambiance was casual, fine but not memorable.

To the guy who recently said terrible, you must be out of your mind. The food there is among the best. I haven't had such a good meal since I can remember and I dine out a lot. It's hard to decide which is better, the food or the service. Kellen was our server and we've never experienced such an... More

We showed up without a reservation. The place was very busy but the hostess was able seat us within 15 minutes. The food was very good, rivaling some of the restaurants in Boston's North End. We especially liked the marinara sauce!

Failed to do my homework and wound up at this poor excuse for a restaurant! The small glass of Merlot was so acidic I would have sent it back if it had been a bottle. The sauce on the appetizer tasted like ketchup and the shrimp scampi in lemon sauce and capers was so overwhelmed by the capers that I... More

We had dinner here and had a great time. The food was very good. I had the chicken piccata and a very nice, fresh caprese salad. The server was so pleasant and friendly.

We're so glad Mazzeo's is down the street from this place because it means we can almost always get in at Trattoria Vesuvio! Though the decor isn't as romantic, the food knocks it out of the park! We're "eaters" and have found this place to be consistently excellent over the years. We nearly always order the veal parm, though my... More

This Italian restaurant is really Italian food at its finest that are from Italy and its shows in the quality. When you talk to the owners you know that they care about what they serve and intend to give you the freshest food with old world tastes. My wife is Gluten free and they catered to her needs and the... More
