No doubt, we wanted the best Italian food in the area. Both guys were celebrating their birthdays and all they could talk about was Arthur Avenue and Little Italy. Based on friends recommendations and reviews, this was our destination. Our trip there was about 70 minutes and boy were we hungry. The place is small luckily not loud. Our server... More

When we came to this restaurant, after a long walk, we were very hungry and tired. We had no idea that they only excepted reservations for dinner services. The staff did not reject us though, they found a table for us and served us with great attitude and pleasure. The food we ordered (four dishes for four different people) was... More

We showed up at 6:30 and the host accommodated us despite the restaurant being fully booked until 7:45. We only had to wait 15 minutes! Ben was a friendly and helpful waiter! We had the calamari for an appetizer, very good! We enjoyed chicken Marsala, chicken ciao, shrimp and scallop fra diavolo, and, on Ben's recommendation, the soft shell crab.... More

Awesome, awesome, awesome! Great Italian food (Alfredo, chicken Marsala and tiramisu), nice atmosphere and great service by Josh D. Highly recommend. Always great to find a great local restaurant instead of going to a chain restaurant. Look forward to going back again!
