I had heard about this place for a year and finally had a chance to check it out. First off, make reservations if don't want to wait for a table. The place is TINY - maybe 25 seats. My boyfriend and I ordered spaghetti & meatballs and the veggie lasagna. I personally liked the lasagna better - full of fat... More

This is a must try little restaurant. I don't think there is another restaurant in Harrisburg east or west shore that still makes fresh pasta. Everything we had was fresh made, the sauces, meatballs, pasta, wedding soup, all the way to the desert was fresh and delicious. There are many good to excellent Italian restaurants in the Harrisburg east and... More

This place is the best in town for pasta, meatballs and Italian wedding soup. While the menu is limited it is not lacking in terms of original, tasty items. Whether you want authentic Italian (chicken part) or crab Mac and cheese they have the best in town. Order an extra meatball and get the Italian wedding soup at the very... More

I was with a group of friends. One person ordered a salad with an unusual but delicious variety of foods including sun dried tomatos, lettuce, pine nuts and a nice portion of fetuccini all mixed with a great salad dressing. We all shared portions of meatballs which were very good as well. Their homemade sliced bread at the beginning of... More

A nice little Italian restaurant in uptown Harrisburg Pa. Food is always good. Best Tierra Misu (spelling?) without overwhelming coffee flavor. BYOB. Friendly staff. Reservations recommended for weekends. Free parking across the street after 4PM. Try it...you'll like it. 😋

An Italian Restaurant with all home made items. Limited seating with several tables with available take-out. And it's BYOB.

My wife and I had an evening meal here at the recommendation of a friend and ratings on TripAdvisor. I ordered the lobster fra diavalo which wasn't on the menu that night but they said they could prepare it. I should have gone with a menu item. It was way too spicy, the lobster tails were very tough and hard... More

Don't think I can mention another restaurant in this review but I prefer the other small Italian bakery in uptown. Pastorante was ok but atmosphere was cold and sterile. Lasagne was very good and prices were very cheap. BYOB.
