Excellent Italian restaurant in the heart of Chester. My first trip I had the Eggplant Bruschetta and the Garlic and Olive Oil Linguine. Both were so good I came back a second time and had the Squid Ink Pasta, also very good and quite unique. I have no hesitation about returning and look forward to a third trip. Both times... More

Superb flavor. I. Come from an Italian town in WV and this restaurant is the closest thing to home cooked.

Pork osso bucco undercooked, sautéed spinach poorly drained, bistro beef tender but unstained raspberries dumped on a plate is not a sauce, asparagus fibrous wrapped in very salty prociutto, garlic mash potatoes were instant potatoes. Bartender and bar was very boisterous overall a poor dining experience

Our first visit here was with friends to test out the new restaurant in town. It was not a standout evening. As I recall it was not a busy evening, there was a mix-up in our order, service was slow, portions small, and prices on the high-side.

Just finished a wedding rehearsal dinner for 33 people and can't say enough how wonderful on event was. Dario and Angela were just phenomenal. Our son, the groom had selected a fantastic menu which allowed our guests to choose their appetizer, entree and sides. Dario had communicated that he wanted to make our event one we would remember while providing... More

Our service organization met here last night. Approximately 25 people enjoyed a prearranged choice of ribeye steak, salmon, or chicken. All servings were ample and everyone appeared to thoroughly enjoy their meal. A selection of wines was also available. Two servers took care of us and we were not rushed. With few choices for groups to meet for a special... More

There are lots of choices on the menu, the food is good and portions ample. Prices are very reasonable. Their specialty is Italian cuisine. My husband had the lasagna, I had seafood cannelloni, and my son had the Bistro Steak. The food presentation is attractive. The atmosphere is casual which we appreciated. Service is quick and friendly. We were served... More

My wife and I visited for a Sunday night dinner and were more than satisfied. Fresh bread straight from the oven, very good house reds (a cabernet and a chianti), and amazing entrees. My wife had a five cheese manicotti and I chose the osso buco (trying something without the usual tomato sauce). The portion was large and had been... More

I've found this place to be great. Authentic Italian food. Not a bad atmosphere. I'm not crazy about there seating, but love the food and service is good too.

The atmosphere is nice but I was really upset thatvit was 2:30 Sunday with only 6 others in there and I ordered the potatoe medley and they were out of it. This tells me that they werent prepared for just 10 people in their restaurant. Another thing, mom ordered mashed potatoes and it was brought to her cold. Then she... More
