Great food.

Excellent , tasty Italian style menu offerings. Limited seating area, but great food and very friendly and attentive service. This is a nice, cozy dining experience. Definitely will make a return visit.

By far the best of the best. The owners are always happy to see you. Food is freshly prepped, my favorite dish is Pasta alla Nonna. Have never been disappointed at this charming restaurant. Reservations suggested. BYOB

Prices are reasonable for the quality of the dishes and considering Dalto's is BYO maybe it's even cheap. The place is small and reservations are a must. I'm... More

We met at this restaurant because it was a midpoint for our families. Unfortunately, the portions were fairly small although the food was excellent tasting. The service was poor and we waited for our sodas to be delivered and water glasses to be refilled. When the desert menu arrived, there were no prices. All in all, not a place I... More
