Sorry folks...but meh. I love Italian food and when I come to eat at an Italian trattoria, I expect great authentic Italian food not whatever is on sale off the shelf of your local grocery supermarket. OK....so with that said, let's begin. The bruschetta was delicious. The parmesan cubes were also delicious. The Italian bread was warm -- and nice... More

The entire dessert menu is GF - tiramisu!!! They even brought out two warmed dinner rolls before our apps - they were so yummy. What... More

...and I'm talking about family visiting from Boulder, CO and Washington, DC who never miss an opportunity to dine here. Everyone has a favorite---spaghetti Puttanes daughter; the clam sauce for the other; and the fusilli with sausage Bolgnese for me. And although there's a newly added menu of diverse desserts, I'll split the Tartuffo with anybody! The chef/owner and his... More

This is a great place for a qiet relaxing meal. Soft music is in the background (usually Sinatra) and it's easy to carry on a conversation without a lot of noise. The hostess greets eveyone as if they are guests in her house. The front table tonight was filled with the largest Zinnias I've seen - grown by the chef... More

I am not from the area and planned my son's rehearsal dinner mostly based on tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. They brought all the food out timely and everyone really liked it, they kept the wine flowing even though they were very crowded. Maria set everything up as planned and they boxed up all the food for us... More

Making our way from upstate NY to Newark Airport and needed lunch. We remembered this place from a while ago, and it had a good trip adviser review. We stopped in on Saturday afternoon without a reservation and they had two big parties going on, but they took us in anyway. We went with my son, his wife and my... More

Stopped in based in trip advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. Food was fresh and wonderful. Had the eggplant rollatini and it was one of the best I have ever had. I ordered a cappuccino type cupcake for dessert and did not care for it. I just pushed it aside and did not complain about it since it was... More
