Consistently good

Great Italian food. Friendly and very attentive waitstaff. Good wines. Very pleasant atmosphere. Always busy and so reservations are a good idea.

Complete disappointment. What more can I say? Local folks seem to love it. But if they step back and observe the service (slow, inattentive) and think about the food they are tasting (NOT authentic Italian), they would not return. Examples: our daughter's Gnocci was so terrible she had to return it and go without an antree. Can anyone imagin an... More

There were 4 adults in our party and all of us really enjoyed the food. From the appetizers, salad, main course and desserts, the food was plentiful and delicious. Two of us got the fixed price meal and 2 didn't. The fixed price meal included certain appetizers, salads, entrees, dessert and beverage for 1 price. Personally I had the asparagus... More

Who would have thought that a nice Italian restaurant would be in downtown Wilkes Barre. Enjoyed dinner and drinks that were quite good. Service was well paced and attentive. If your're in Wilkes Barre and Italian is on your radar, try this little gem out.

Nice setting for a quiet evening with attentive staff and a wide choice of items. Food was good but not memorable.

When we first walked into the restaurant we thought it was empty, but when they took us to a table they actually took us through the first room and into a back room that was packed full of people. So we dined super close to other customers which i found to be an uncomfortable set-up. The food was good and... More

We love the Capellini D'Angello al Fruti Di Mare - excellent mingling of flavors and a pretty presentation.

The food and the service are excellent. Staff is professional. They are efficient and friendly but do not overwhelm guests with conversation. There is a true understanding, it seems, that guests come there to enjoy each other and the exceptional food. The menu choices are authentic, far from Olive Garden fare. The experience you will have here is special. The... More

Great service and great food what more could you ask for, how about great prices. Compared to similar restaurants offering some of the same items their prices cannot be beat. Salute!

With excellent service and delectable homemade pasta, this little gem in downtown Wilkes-Barre is worth the trek into town! Only a short drive from the traveler's hotels near I-81, you won't regret passing up the fast food and chain restaurants and taking the time to enjoy an authentic Italian meal in the public square. Try the stracciatella soup for a... More
