Excellent Food, Spotty Service

A recent visit for dinner was a very satisfying meal at this long-time Poughkeepsie restaurant. The menu is extensive, with a full selection of pasta favorites, chicken, seafood, beef, and evening specials. Meals are accompanied by a basket of warm garlic bread, and a very good house salad, which... read more

All of the usual favorites. You won't find much avant garde in the way of presentation or choices, but dependable good food, and good sized portions. Been there forever. Sauce is very tasty.

The spaghetti was a little chewy but good. I notice that a little undercooked in more the normalnowadays. This restaurant has been in the same... More

This restaurant is owned by an old Italian family with at least 2 generations working it. Delicious homemade Italian dishes and is right on lower Main St. in Poughkeepsie!

A favorite of ours for 40 years! Their stuffed shrimp is the "gold standard" we compare all others to. They have a great NY strip, and if you have a real appetite, order the chicken Contadina. My wife really likes their chicken Francaise. I like the fact that you can order a half carafe of wine. Save room for the... More

Well - starting with the summary: this is NOT a budget place > charging $18 for a dinner pasta dish w/out any meat - you're aiming to a high end Italian place, so it is only expected everything (or most of it) to be on the higher end. And that was NOT the case: although the taste of the dishes... More
