Delicious food, excellent service

Another couple and my husband and I enjoyed a delicious meal with excellent service. The wait staff was extremely responsive. I had the shrimp and crabmeat ravioli. A little too much sauce, but delicious.

The atmosphere is pleasant, quiet, not too fancy and always comfortable. The food is consistently great. Portions are certainly adequate but not overwhelming. Service is fast, efficient and pleasant. Weeknight prix fix is a great bargain. Coupons are honored but rarely collected so you can use them again.

Went 7pm on a Saturday night. Had a reservation and glad we did. Waited about 10 minutes for them to set the table, and not sure how long the wait would have been without it - or if we could have even gotten a table. Service was slow but we wanted it that way so it was fine. Food was... More

This location has gone downhill and seems to get by on offering inexpensive choices for group meetings. The décor is very dated and tired-looking and the menu unintentionally very funny, with so many mistakes that it is just sad. The food is acceptable but not more than that. Too bad.

I will return as the food was tasty and reasonably priced. The menu was diverse enough that it's worth giving another shot. Next time we'll try the Prix-fixe. The customer service was okay. Waiter was dull, manager was pleasant. The dessert was a miss, some type of dry berry bread pudding. But dinner was wonderful. Pasta for me, chicken for... More

We have gone there several times as this restaurant has been in Livingston for many years. The food was fabulous when it first opened but they have not updated their menu since it opened. It now seems to cater to a senior crowd so they need to upgrade to bring in younger people.

I attended an engagement party here on a Sunday afternoon. I liked that the restaurant was closed and it was just our group. Food was very good from appetizer to dessert. Service was great as well. Was a little difficult to find the location. But will definitely visit again.

This is a staple restaurant in Livingston. It offers your typical Italian food. They do an early bird dinner so if you go before six be prepared for the blue hairs. I would recommend if they read this to change the carpet. When you walk in you get this brick wall effect of old smelly carpet. That is why we... More
