Not a good experience. Waitress was excellent. Owner was walking through restaurant asking other diners how things were going. My husband and I (African Americans) were never approached. Ordered drinks and appetizers and main course meal at same time. Got the appetizers and drink in very good time. However, waited at least 45 minutes for main course. A couple sitting... More

It had been a few years since I had been here and I was a little disappointed. The chicken soup was acceptable, but not excellent. The pappedelle al sugo sounded like it was going to be excellent, but instead I found it to be very salty and the pasta somewhat soft. I did like the meatballs, but the sausage was... More

Visited on July 25, 2014 We went with another couple and dined outside on a perfect night. The waitress was excellent and very helpful and suggested a make your own dish for me. It was an excellent choice. The two women had chicken marsala and they stated it was excellent. The portions were very large and a good place to... More

The eggplant parmesan I had last night was pretty bad. Three separate slices of eggplant with heavy coating, slices of cheese on top and swimming in tomato sauce. I did not care for the spaghetti with meat sauce that was a side dish. The others at the table had veal dishes that all looked good and everyone said the veal... More

This is a great little Italian restaurant. The owner (from Italy) is always floating around to talk to customers. I really enjoyed the Fettucine Alfredo and the free rolls with garlic and butter are out of this world. Service is goof, but can be a bit slow. It's also a great location for a pre-movie meal at Westchester Commons.

Have eaten there several times and it has been decent. This time 4/30 it took two hours in and out. The lasagna was pretty tastless and the chicken francese portion was very small. Waitress was excellent.

Nice menu selections and daily specials. Extensive wine list, service is very good. Entrees are reasonably priced and well-proportioned. Food is delicious, especially the garlic rolls. Very good atmosphere, but better if you wait until after families with small children have dined and left.

I have friends who love the restaurant but I have not been thrilled. The meals have been average and the service borders from okay to slow. I would return when friends want to go there.
