Good restaurant on Main Street. Pleasant surroundings, good service and a menu that is basically Italian and which has turkey meatballs and great salads. Go there and you will enjoy lunch or dinner. The drawback is the noise level.

Each year our group included three kids. 1) I was able to book on Open Table, which is very convenient. And they accommodated a same-day change in number easily (from 11 to 12)... More

I love meeting my friends here for lunch. They have great lunch specials and the food and service is always good. It can get a bit noisy at times especially if they have a party going on at the same time.

I used to come here often when I worked in Smithtown, but it's been a good five or so years since I've been back. We decided to give it a try. Upon entering, we were hit with a strong smell that we couldn't decide if it was more like urine or musty. It was just near the bar. It was... More
