Great supper

The atmosphere very welcoming and the servers most helpful. The food was terrific, especially liked the veal au poivre.

Ben awhile since I have been here so since it was my birthday we decided to go there . The atmosphere is very nice and even though it was busy one could have a conversation with out talking over people. I order the shrimp as an appetizer there were 3 of them and very large but I would have liked... More

I was treated to an "old school" Italian ambiance experience while recently visiting Long Island on business. Where the waiters treat you like a king and mama is in the back whipping up her favorites. The vino and Italian flowed freely. I can't wait to get back there on my next trip and see Mr. V and his crew.

Upon walking in and being seated, you just know you are in a special place. Very friendly and professional staff. Forget what the specials are- tell them what you are looking for- chances are very good the kitchen can make it happen. Outstanding wine list. Absolutely the Best Veal I have had in dozens of Long Island restaurants. Excellent!

We were invited guests by friends of ours from the region. Being Francophones, the Italian language isn't that foreign to us. So, when our small group encountered the warm and friendly reception by the classically, tuxedo dressed, Maitre D' at the door in that Latin language, we knew we were about to enjoy a dining experience. The dining room was... More

We were seated at a cozy round table for four. The menu is extensive with delicious selections of antipasto, salads, pasta, chicken, veal, beef and fish dishes. The specials sounded awesome but I had the stuffed veal chop which was outstanding. The service was impeccable. Good time had by all

Excellent food, wonderful service. I had linquine with white clam sauce, the best I've ever had. Even better than what I had Italy.

My wife and I have dined here for many years. We have never been disappointed. The specialty is northern Italian and the veal dishes are particularly good. If you want something that is not on the menu, ask; they may be able to do it for you. The service is attentive and professional. The restaurant is small and I would... More

Very nice. A relaxed, quiet Italian restaurant. The pace is much slower than the average place. That made our 'dinner with friends' more enjoyable as we had plenty of time to have a great meal and enjoy out time together. Not your everyday menu, with many different dishes. And every meal at our table was great. Looking forward to next... More
