The food here was actually outstanding. The name had me walking in with lower expectations, but I must say, they provided great service and a satisfyingly delicious meal of fresh seafood, Italian style. BYO beer or wine.

Food was ok, but far too expensive for a simple bowl of pasta. Plan on paying a minimum of $20.00 (twenty) a head for a dish without meat..and then up from there!

This Italian restaurant was just ok. Spaghetti sauce was a little bland. Calimari salad was good. Veal was ok. Salad had one tiny tomato. Time for some renovations, decor is a little dated. Server was very good.

Nice all around from real traditional southern Italian cuisine. Nothing fancy just the essential ingredients in every selection. Possibly the bad reviews on here are from people who did not understand what they ordered. Believe me this is not to be missed
