Pros: Really cool building/architecture. Liked the family business aspect and classic Italian design Sitting outside in the nice weather is worth going there for. BYOB! Fresh ingredients. Friendly workers. Cons: Food was just average. Menu was good, but nothing really stood out for us. For what we got the price was a little high. Check the price of the app... More

This is the hidden gem of Newtown. It's not often your greeted and sat by the owner and before your wine is even opened there are two delicious apps at your table. Fresh bruschetta and a platter of thinly slice prosciutto and sopressata with cheeses and olives. the atmosphere is straight out of a restaurant in Italy hands down. The... More

This is really the only restaurant to eat. From start to finish it is top notch. The service is off the charts with greatness and the food will keep you craving more and more ever time. If you haven't treated yourself the time is now. Thank me later. A loyal customer.

We met friends here on a Sunday evening, and were lucky enough to get a table outside. The outdoor seating area is off to the side of the restaurant, and nicely screened off from the parking lot and other buildings - every table was filled at 7 pm! The food was really great, starting with shared appetizers of stuffed zucchini... More

The seating outside on a gorgeous summer evening cannot be beat. The only hiccup is that they don't take reservations for outside on the weekend. The food was fresh, tasty and good value. The waiters are attentive and friendly. Will definitely go back.

Excellent food with friendly and attentive service. My husband enjoyed the homemade pappardelle bolognese. He said it was the best he's ever had. I enjoyed the pollo ai funghi. All the ingredients were fresh and delicately prepared. Portions were generous. Menu has something for everyone including a wide assortment of pasta dishes, antipasto and traditional Italian entrees. BYOB. We'll be... More

Didn't have a bad dinner here, it was just nothing to really write home about. Four of us split a calamari appetizer; it was a pretty small portion and not the best I've had. Marinara sauce was tasty. Probably wouldn't order that again. Other people around us had ordered salads and those looked like the way to go, especially the... More

We have been here several times and the food is excellent. The service is very good. The desserts are made by Anna, Pasquale's wife. Oh My God, they all are incredible. There is outdoor seating also. I strongly suggest reservations a week before. Its a BYOB. Very busy restaurant and very noisy. The tables aver very close together and its... More
