Nice wine selection and food was ok, $132 for dinner for two not worth it . Dinners do not include soup or salad and my salad was $12.00 ! Not worth it, sorry .

The service here is terrible! My party of 8 (including 4 children) had dinner here. Immediately, the service was horrible. After being seated, we waited about 10 minutes for our server to even acknowledge us. She brought our drinks then didn't come back for another 10 minutes to take our order. We did enjoy our meal...we were commenting how good... More

This was a second visit to this little gem of a place off Highway 131, though this time our adult kids were along. In our experience the food is deeply flavorful at every level. The antipasto platter is generous and loaded with unique savory flavors. The fried calamari had a different presentation (no ringlets but longer pieces of the body)... More

We had dinner here on a whim and were very glad we did. The decor was very 1960s and we hesitated but we were greeted by a friendly hostess and were seated in a quiet corner. Then our meal began. The waitress answered our questions, suggested a very nice chianti and started us with a cheese spread and bread sticks... More

Best Italian food that we have had since returning from Italy. The wine list is also spectacular. Highly recommend for those who appreciate authentic Italian and a superb wine list.

We were staying just down the road, at the Hampton. And starving! They have a Huge Grappa bar, which is odd, many people don't even know what it is. It's old school Italian decor. Service was good, but the food was way!!!! Over priced! I ordered some pasta dish with seafood. Lobster tail,shrimp...all the seafood was over cooked and no... More

If you like grappa they have a huge selection.I'll be going back. Only bad thing if you consider it bad is they don't open until... More

Make a reservation or risk not getting in! Fantastic unassuming spot at 31 & 131. Fresh homemade Italian food with excellent service. We had a fabulous meal! Try the veal saltimboca or the ravioli. A bit pricey but worth it!

I was there with a large party, food was ok, bit over priced but nothing to complain about. The bill comes and higher than normal "large party" tip was included. Nothing outrageous just higher than you normally see when it's added to your bill. One of the members who couldn't be more mild mannered questioned the gratuity and that's when... More
