AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME

What can I say, the food, the staff, the atmosphere was fantastic!!! We had reservations so I cannot say how long it takes to get seated if you just walk in. The atmosphere is old Italian. You will NEVER leave this place hungry. Love it, Love it, Love it. Nothing bad to say about it at all.

My husband and I treated our son & 6 of his college roommates (along with his little sister) to his birthday dinner here, and were very glad we did! We were seated promptly on a Saturday night, despite the size of our party. The service was friendly and attentive. The kitchen was a bit behind with our orders, but it... More

The food is plentiful but the noodles in the lasagna were way past mush, a little too much ricotta didn't help the texture. The marinara was pretty much tasteless. Also the eggplant parm was not evenly fried, that crispiness was only on the edges. not good! The mixed greens salad was plentiful and the dressing was very good but for... More

We were in town for training at the NYSDOT building next door and this restaurant is conveniently located to our hotel in the back of the lot. We were able to walk to the restaurant after a long drive into town. Our server Ron had a great smile and was knowledgeable about the food when we asked a couple questions.... More

I really, really wanted to love this place after hearing great things from word of mouth and good reviews online. I do love all the kitschy stuff that blankets the walls, ceilings, and even the bathrooms, and it's fun to find the more ridiculous items that are scattered throughout. My fiancee and both enjoyed the Chianti we had and it... More

Red Sauce was at least satisfactory. I would grade it C+ or B- The Meatballs tasted like hardly seasoned pork and bread crumbs. Service was mediocre. Ambiance is good. Portion sizes are misleading. e.g. Chicken OR Eggplant Parmiagana regular size was $20 a la carte (!) so no pasta or sides. The large size was $35 but had THREE (3)... More

I went here with a large group. Not a fan of the family style with such a large group. To much confusion ordering. Food was good. Service was good.

This is a great restaurant and bar. You will need reservations unless you want to eat at the bar. We ate at the bar and it was fine for us. Food is served family style it is perfect for a group. Servings are generous.
