Between the two of us, my wife and I had pepperoni pizza and three different kinds of pasta in two dinners there. All were excellent, as were the included salads and bread. The (recorded) music was a little loud for conversation, though.

When a restaurant says authentic Italian it conjures up images of Italy for me. Just remember you are at the beach not Lake Como. You are in a strip mall not a beautiful old Italian building. The food was delicious! The atmosphere lacked. The service was just ok. I would go here again for lunch just to get out of... More

New Owners perhaps a year or two ago, but I was told original cook staff trained new staff. Is it still good - Absolutely. Food you could die for. Wait Staff overwhelms you with service and quick response time. I'm a local who lives on the Island - my personal favorite. A few others are good - but his is... More

I've had the chicken parmigiana a few times, and also their veal scallopini. The portions are big, so I never order an appetizer. This is a fun place to eat. Nice atmosphere, nice music, friendly family business.

Great, food, service and drink menu! We loved the artichoke dip appetizer, and the brick oven pizzas were great!

We ate here for our last evening on SPI. My husband and I shared a pasta with asiago dish (for which they charged us a "sharing" charge of an additional $4 for some lettuce consisting of drenched in oil/vinegar 2 olives and 2 Greek peppers). The dish was very overdone on the cheese and was not very good. My daughters... More

Their pizza is delicious but the one reason we drive the 30min is for their Italian wedding cake! Just the best desert I've ever had!

Stopped in on a nice sunny day, and enjoyed the afternoon sun, and eating, on the small outdoor patio. Portions were large, and sharing is is definitely an option. We had the Carbonara, and the Classic Calzone. A salad, with garlic bread, and infused oil for dipping, was included. The classic Calzone was very large, filling 1/2 the plate on... More
