Relaxing Dinner

I ordered the chicken parmesan dinner and it was so huge I brought 2/3 of it home with me. Excellent marinara sauce, chicken cooked perfectly, and came out hot and fresh. Service was spectacular and I even met the owner. I grew up in an Italian neighborhood in New York and the marinara sauce here is just like their old... More

My wife said it was the best Alfredo she's ever had. I also had the homemade pasta with meat sauce and meat balls and it was fabulous. Salads were fresh and light. Our server, Sandy, was friendly, attentive, provided excellent service....and had a wonderful life story. It was close to closing time and we loved talking with her. Definitely will... More

Excellent service, quaint atmosphere, and simply the best Italian food I have enjoyed at any restaurant. It felt like we were eating at Chef Franco's house!

Our reception was warm and we enjoyed our dining experience with Franco and his staff... More
