Good Italian food

Service takes awhile, dress is casual dressy, the food is good. We had the manicotti, which was excellent but too much cheese, which I never thought my husband would ever say that! Also had the penne ala vodka, also good. Salads do not come with the meal but prices are reasonable.

Very good atmosphere and food close to what we had in Italy. Dishes were similar to those in the area around the Pantheon.

My wife & I decided to have dinner at this café in May 2015. The café is very small but cozy. The dinners were a little pricey, with an additional $5.99 for a dinner salad. The service was just ok, not great. Overall, we both enjoyed our meals.

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
