The food here is always amazing. My favorite is the rock shrimp appetizer. They give you antipasto when you come in which is super nice and keeps us coming back. It's the little things that count :) The dinners are awesome. We love Johnny the waiter. He's awesome. Definitely great Italian food and we drive all the way from Randolph,... More

We were greeted warmly upon entering - even though this was our first time at this restaurant. The food and service were excellent, and the prices very reasonable for the quality and quantity of the food. Complementary antipasto and biscotti were a nice touch. Would definitely return.

The food is amazing and the appetizer prior to your meal is sensational. I got the chicken ala casa and it was better this time than it has been in years... More

Fantastic local restaurant in Nutley. The menu is great and very high quality food. No need to order a appetizer as they provide you a complimentary antipasto. Service has always been great as well, highly recommend a reservation.

We love coming here. The food is always good and we are never rushed. They have a good selection of wines that compliment their dinners. And let's not forget those desserts. Mmmmm
