Italian Gourmet

Wonderful wine selection, full bar service, and an incredible menu that changes all the time. Listen carefully as they usually have at least four or five specials every night. Very generous portions and unending fresh baked bread with dipping oil. Decade desserts.

Stopped her for dinner early on a Saturday evening. The first thing we noticed was strong smell of musty rag - you know when the place is cleaned with a rag that never dries out? I would have left but we were with others and so we stayed. We sat in a small room by the window where thankfully there... More

Our experience at this restaurant was a strange one. When we first arrived we stood by the front door for at least five minutes before we were acknowledged by the staff that was busily running around and not making eye contact with anyone. It appeared that they were having a problem or were short staffed, this can happen and we... More

Went to lunch on a rainy Wednesday. Menu was good looking with lots of choices. Wait staff very good. I ordered a burger medium, and it was medium tasting burger. I had a fresher medium in Chalfont. My cousin ordered a pasta dish that was good, no raves.The bill came & she noticed that her entrée was priced much more... More

The restaurant has a charming look and feel. The wait-staff was pleasant and attentive. The Insalata di Funghi was edible - that's the best I can say. The Margarita pizza was too salty and the dough was undercooked in the center. We will give this place another try -perhaps it was a bad night- but we will NOT be having... More

We were guests at a rehearsal dinner in the upstairs private room. The setting was clean, bright, and attractive. We had a glass of wine while visiting with other guests. After being seated, the waiters brought fresh bread to each place, to be enjoyed with olive oil. Orders were taken, then it was a VERY LONG WAIT for any additional... More

We were a group of 15 and they gave us the upstairs room surrounded by windows that looked lovely. They allowed access to decorate and were very open to last minute additions and changes. We had a dedicated server who was very accommodating and professional. We had basically the whole upstairs to ourselves for a fabulous private gathering. The food... More
