Good food reasonable price

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

Small, comfortable and pleasant family-run bistro. Great food, great service, pleasant and comfortable ambience, attentive owners as well as staff, reasonable prices. What more do you want? The Chicken Tosca I had was outstanding, and the entire meal was delicious. Come and let Sylvia and Sal Viviano take care of you. You won't be disappointed.

Owners Sal and Sylvia are charming and hospitable. Food has always been excellent and freshly cooked. Not a upscale restaurant inside but very cozy, charming and inviting. My husband and I are fond of restaurants that are not part of a chain and rate high on good food and friendliness. Favorite dish is chicken piccata salad.
