Wonderful tomato sauce!

I love the tomato sauce at this place -- it reminds me of Boston's North End. The pasta here is very good, the portions are great, and the prices are reasonable. Services is always friendly.

We went to this little Italian restaurant last year on a recommendation from a friend and we have been going back regularly ever since. from the outside it looks small, but there is a bar in the back and more seating there as well. If you sit in the front area you can watch the chefs prepare the food. I... More

I was there few weeks ago, it was located at a strip mall. Not too big but quite nice inside. I ordered one of their "most popular" on the menu; the seafood risotto. My companion ordered a chicken dish. Both dishes were delicious and there was a fair amount of assorted seafood on the plate. The problem was it was... More

We have visited this resturant several times and each time the food was excellent. We have taken friends with us as well and they too enjoy the food and have returned on their own. We also purchase their garlic olive oil to take home with us. So....good. This is definetly a place to try if you have not been there.

One of my favorite Italian restaurants in the area. Home made dishes & homemade bread. Excellent for lunch. In the past 4 years they have expanded in the back area for a cozy bar & dinner seating.

This place is fantastic. There was a short wait so we decided to visit the lounge. The atmosphere at the bar was so nice that we decided to have our dinner there. The calamari was good and the seafood risotto was extraordinary! Drinks were also very good. The bartender and wait staff were friendly and personable. Days later I was... More

We had lunch here today and it was exquisite--don't let the outside fool you! The service was excellent right from the start; the warm bread and garlic olive oil were such a nice touch. The menu is extensive with something to please everyone. Two of us had the gnocchi, one the eggplant and I had the pasta primavera with olive... More

If you are looking for really tasty and authentic Italian food, this is the place for you. I have eaten here several times and have always enjoyed how delicious the food is. I take friends and acquaintances here often.

We experience this first with David as our server a number of years ago. His family is still there, as is David occasionally, and each dish is as perfect as it was back when. I don't really want to say too many wonderful things because we can usually get a table at the last minute and I don't want to... More
