Yummy!

Great Italian food. They use fresh ingredients, and change things up a bit every once in a while. This is a very small restaurant, so not great for a big group. Although, they may rent out for a larger group. We've made reservations for 8 or so with no problem.

Pretty good. Very quaint place, but sound does travel, especially with children. The butternut squash was delicious, not too sweet. It was just a nice, overall experience. I would return again.

Our family ate dinner at this restaurant on April 3, 2015. We had a reservation at 6pm and did not have to wait for a table - we were seated immediately upon arrival. For beverages, two members of our family had wine - one had a Moscato and one had a Chianti. The third family member had an Italian beer... More

Really tasty food with reasonable prices and great gluten free options. Parking is a bit of an issue, but otherwise, we loved it.

Always love, love the food. Soups, pastas and subs. The owners are very nice and always make sure we're happy with our meals. And LOVE the chocolate mousse especially with whip cream.

Homemade Italian food that is served in a cafe style atmosphere. Even the gluten free menu is fantastic.

Delicious Italian cuisine and very welcoming. Had great Veal Saltimbocca, Eggplant Parm, Chicken Tosca. Delicious pasta on the side, too. Cannoli was freshly filled and wonderful.

The great food and service in this small family run Italian restaurant remind me of wandering the streets of Firenze and finding the restaurants that real working Italians enjoyed. What a way to savor the good life.

This is our favorite restaurant in Brighton. We live in the area and have tried them all. If you love pasta, try a truncetta: the mushroom one will satisfy the most ardent mushroom lover! The owners make your experience personal with their friendly visits to the tables.

We have two members in our family who must eat gluten free and we LOVE the GF menu! My husband who doesn't have to eat gluten free sometimes does because it's THAT good...very authentic Italian cuisine! The desserts are amazing as well. Our favorite is the tiramisu! We always feel special when we dine there...thanks to the hospitable Sal and... More
