Food is great - Don't judge by it's location!

Located in a strip mall, and the interior is a little worn, but the food was outstanding and the staff all treated us (2 business travelers) like family. And I've got experience with Italian family, so I know what 'home' feels like. Servings were generously sized, and it looked like almost... read more

Our lovely bed and breakfast owner highly recommended this place. The food was good especially the chicken piccata. The eggplant appetizer was lightly breaded so you could really taste the delicious flavors. The atmosphere was ok..although it was pretty good for a strip mall, more could definitely be done to make the dining room more inviting.

Been here before, three years ago! And great traditional dish of carbonara! Great crema espresso and great service from Rick. I'll be back again!

I like this place. Very good food, friendly service and reasonable prices. I've been many times and haven't been disappointed yet. The strip mall location might throw you off, but not to worry....it's worth it.

This restaurant is located at the end of a strip mall.However, I would recommend making a reservation as the restaurant tends to get busy.My wife and I have made multiple visits and always enjoyed our meals....

This restaurant does not look like much from the outside, but once you are inside, you are treated like long-lost relatives! The owners and staff are so friendly and the food is to die for! The prices were comparable to other restaurants in the area and the food was so much better! The next time we visit Nashua, we will... More

I was in Nashua NH on business last week with a colleague and were searching for a different restaurant to eat in (other than chains). While driving down Amherst St we passed what appeared from the outside to your basic Italian restaurant/pizza place. Seeing no other good choices we decided to give it a try. Looks are deceiving, what we... More

Far & away the best Italian cuisine around. Wonderful risotti, seafood dishes; delicous homemade pasta with imaginative sauces -- veal piccata unmatchable. And as for the desserts , , , WOW!

Wait staff are great! You can eat in the bar or restaurant! We started off with the calamari as an appetizer. It was delish! I got the chicken saltimboca and my date got one of the specials, chicken, shrimp, artichoke in a Gorgonzola sauce over linguine. Delicious! Location is a small strip mall on Amherst St. 101A. Definitely worth the... More

This is the first time we have visited the restaurant and were presently surprised. It is located at the end of a strip mall. The wait staff is very good and shares duties across all tables.
