The other downfall is that there is really no place to park so you are going... read more

So I was recommended this place by a few people that live in Staten Island. I take my mom there for dinner about 5:30 and when we arrive they seat us at a table my mom really didn't like and even before we sit down the waiter noticed that we wanted to sit somewhere else and asked if we wanted...

There is a special that is always offered Monday thru Thursday. You are able to buy one dinner and get one free. The food is excellent. Most of the time, you leave with a doggie bag.

Went to lunch with friends and found a wide variety from which to choose including wraps, heros, a number of pasta dishes and their full dinner menu. Two of us had pasta. My dish included calamari and a fra Diablo sauce which was outstanding and plentiful. Those who got wraps were quite satisfied with them in terms of quality and... More

Based on a recommendation from the desk clerk at the Hilton Garden Inn we drove over to this small neighborhood Italian Cafe. The distance is about 6 miles from the hotel on Hyland Blvd. The general area is nothing special but the restaurant has a true Italian flavor down to our waiter whose accent made you feel like you were...

The food is wonderful! Fis h, Veal Chicken Pasta rice and much much more. The owner is very inventive and hands on. During the week it is 2 for 1 and well worth it. Have a drink or two and dessert to die for.

This past Summer I booked an engagement Party for my daughter here and was completely blown away by the food and service. It is not easy for a restaurant to handle 25-30 people arriving at once but they did an admirable job. My family is originally from Bay Ridge Brooklyn and we are accustomed to excellent italian food when dining... More

Excellent Italian food, excellent service. Monday thru Thursday they offer a nice 2 for 1 menu. Comes with a house salad. Surprising quality for the price. Service was very attentive. Get the "Mom's Sunday Dinner". Kobe beef meatballs, sausage and braciola over rigatoni with a hie sweet red sauce.
