Nice family owned Italian

Nice family owned Italian - reasonable prices and great taste!! There is parking behind the place and is right next to a shoprite in downtown. Food was good - nothing out of the world but just good food and clean place Will visit again with family for dinner!

Friendly neighborhood Italian, always very good food and excellent service. We have been a regular patron of this restaurant over ten years, so they must be doing something right.

I was so excited to see a tomato garden in the back of the restaurant! My first impression was that they must use delicious fresh ingredients from the garden, and they actually do! The complimentary pesto for bread dipping is awesome. The fish was freshly prepared and very good. Appetizers and salads were fresh and tasty. Waiters professional! Refreshing to... More

If you live in the neighborhood and are looking for an inexpensive meal, this is fine. The ambiance is nothing special and neither is the food. But service is good and the menu is pretty much what you can expect from a low end Italian restaurant.

Very good neighborhood Italian restaurant. Pasta is homemade and fresh daily. BYOB. I recommend the pappardelle in veal ragu sauce. The parking lot is small but you can park across the street or next door.

Went for "early bird special" dinner (just get there before 6pm) on a Friday night (specials every day but Saturday). Early dinner is limited to 3 entrees, but includes appetizer and salad and coffee and dessert. Price is only $15.99. Food was excellent - and plentiful (except salad which was a little chintzy). Staff was very nice and attentive. You... More

Having been here many times in the past, we were disappointed by our visit last night with friends. Has the chef and/or the kitchen staff changed? All four of our foods lacked the pizzazz and more especially the refinement it's had in the past. Every plate was just a little different (less good) and a little disappointing. It used to... More

I really enjoyed my meal. The service was good, the food was really good - I was happy. We had the calamari and it was some of the best I've ever had. The sauce was really spicy, but it was worth eating! I had the rigatoni with chicken in vodka sauce and it was melt in your mouth good and... More
