The restaurant is newly expanded with a full bar now. We sat at the bar which was fine as the wait was 45 minutes to an hour. Food is as always. Never had to wait that long before the restaurant was expanded ? Food is very good. Well prepared with amazing number of choices. Enjoy !

This takeout standout is now more of a finer dining restaurant after a recent expansion. The owner Guiseppe M always seems to be there watching over the customers and the kitchen with great love. This is an easy on off from 95 at Exit 57 for travelers. It's our regular place for local good traditional and some unusual Italian food.... More

The whole place has been renovated and expanded upon, including a really nice bar area. Also, it has many more tables which means a shorter wait for the great food to come! I have never had a bad meal there and this one was no different. Service was good, but a bit slow. I guess I would attribute that to... More
