Italian

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!

Absolutely wonderful food and service! Very good Italian food! My husband and I went here for a date night. It is close to our home and have always heard great things. We wanted to try it for ourselves. You will not be disappointed! The ziti and penne vodka were delicious. Service was quick and friendly. Never had to ask for... More

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.

We've dined here several times over the years, and I have noticed a steady decline. Those in my party who had fish meals were quite happy. But the pasta dishes all tasted the same (we share, so I tasted them all). The salads were uninteresting, and the coffee tasted like it had been heating for hours. I don't know if... More

I felt like the invisible man here waiting for service..The owner noticed and assisted me..He was very nice..I just wanted something to take home..One waitress looked miserable! Maybe because the place wasn't busy..Well I still tipped over 20 percent like I always do with take out..The food was good..Next time I will stay and really check out the service..This restaurant...

August 2, 2013 I took Rita&Michael McHugh where Rita worked as a teen to the Milanese and enjoyed great cocktails served up by Karen at the bar. We were seated by Robert's daughter Adriana who served us the entire evening and we laughed and talked while... More
