I have been wanting to eat here for a long time, and I finally did. It exceeded my expectations! The hummus and pita bread plate was delicious, and the perfect amount of appetizer for 2 people. I had the mediterranean pasta, and my boyfriend had chicken cacciatore. They were both wonderful, and so was the limoncello cake. If that wasn't... More

My wife had their chicken marsala and let me tell she will probably get it every time we come back . . . it was fabulous. And my lamb kabobs were tender, juicy and out of this world. Our meal came with this great starter plate that had some of the best humus I had ever had. They do it... More

This is a favorite...Low, comfortable benches,...Middle Eastern music, the best home-made hummous, grape leaves and babba ganoush anywhere. The salads are so fresh,it seems like the enzymes are jumping off the plate...And the grilled beef and lamb kabobs are divine. You are allowed to bring your own wine,without a corking fee. The owner, Alfredo, is a consciencious host as well... More

Flavorful, moderately priced Med food. We only had the Lebanese type dishes, so I can't speak to the Italian. The dishes were perfectly seasoned, and the hummus was especially tasty in the olive/hummus and pita bread you're started off with. I will say the lamb was overcooked on both dishes, so there's room for improvement, but overall I really enjoyed... More

I had lunch there with family and as a first time visitor, I was impressed. It is a cozy restaurant with booths and tables, with Mediterranean eclectic decor. In addition to Med food, they have Greek and Italian dishes, but we saw no need to stray to that. They bring a complimentary plate of hummus, pita, olives, etc. to the... More

I will start off by saying that I would have never entered this place if it weren't for the rave reviews. The outside is creepy and the inside is too...dirty rugs and the general appearance was not clean. The complimentary pita bread and hummus was absolutely wonderful. We were so put off by the exterior and interior of the restaurant,... More

We went there Sat night with friends because of Trip Advisor reviews. There were 7 of us so we had quite a variety. No one left so much as a crumb. Everyone was so pleased that each of us shared. Everything was fantastic. Certainly the best food in the area. Quite a full menu. I can't wait to go back.... More
