Authentic Italian

Best Italian restaurant ever! Loved this place. The bocce court outside looked like it would be so much fun in better weather. The food was real Italian, not watered down Americanized Italian.

Authentic Sicilian food. We have been here many times. Is our go to for taking out friends, been here for New Years, birthdays, etc.. House made wine is superb. Owners come around and sit and chat with you. Love this. They need better espresso after dinner drinks is only complaint. Come on! Your Sicilian!

Went with a group of 8. The food was very good and there was a lot of it. Not a fan of their Caesar salad. Surprised the atmosphere was more loud sports bar than cozy Italian intimate restaurant. I'll go back.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a lady inside a store we visited in Norwalk. It was quite busy when we arrived and we went downstairs to wait for our table and enjoyed some wine and complimentary appetizers. A very cool place and before too long we were brought to our table upstairs. Outstanding bruschetta and red wine...enjoyed the... More

This place looks like straight out of the Soprano's show. My girlfriend and I dined here on Tuesday night. From start to finish everything was fantastic. The food was awesome and so was the service. Thumbs up all around!

Some of the best (if not the best) I have ever had, including some top notch restaurants in NYC, Vegas, Chicago, etc. Pasta Mafia was amazing (from scratch), large portions, well priced, excellent wine selection. Do not visit Sandusky without stopping here!!! (Be sure to check out cellar as well - cute!!!!

We wanted a place that wasn't a chain while in Sandusky and decided to try this place. We would make the 75 min drive from home just to eat here again! Absolutely delicious and obviously a place where "locals" eat and not the usual chain. Try the house dressing and the Soprano pasta!

There are only two places in our area for Italian food and this is one of them. Great food, great service and great environment to relax with friends and break bread.

After a day at Cedar point we decided we wanted Italian for dinner, and they hit the spot and then some! Food was amazing as was the wait staff and very reasonably priced!
