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.

The 2 for 1 menu is the reason why I come to this restaurant, because you can't beat that value. The food is very good, and getting that value where at another Italian restaurant for double the price is great. Every time I've been there our server was friendly and helpful. No bad experiences, and hopefully this consistency shows to... More

The special "Two for One" menu available Mondays through Thursdays is very popular among Staten Islanders. Meals begin with a family style salad accompanied by Italian bread which can be slathered with roasted garlic or butter. The special menu includes excellent veal parmigiana and what they call "Da Best" chicken parm. Both are huge and are accompanied by your choice... More

Went here with my sister and mom because of a really great deal we found on groupon, and were pleasantly surprised! The service was attentive yet not overbearing, and the waiter was able to recommend items & joke around with us, which I likes. Atmosphere was ok, seems like they need a little updating. Beautiful ceiling, but I didn't care... More

We've never been disappointed with the food. From the appetizers to desserts it has always been very good. During the week they have a 2 for 1 special (cash only). On weekends they have a price fix menu along with their regular menu. For $75.00 you get an appetizer, entree, dessert with coffee and a bottle of wine for two.... More

We live about 5 minutes from this restaurant and had never been there..heard someone talking about the menu and decided to give it a try since there are very few good restaurants on S.I. My husband is always looking for decent meatballs (moms Sunday dinner)so he was very happy to find them. I'm not crazy about meatballs but must say... More

This was the first time we ate here and will the the last. The staff wasn't trained very well. We were with 4 other couples and when the waiter started to bring the food he didn't know which dishes belonged to whom. He was actually calling out the dishes to ask us who ordered the dish. Very poor service. The... More
