I went with my family. The food and service was very good. They have an outstanding Spaghetti Carbonara. The fried calamari sauce was also outstanding.

The food was delicious. I had chicken with artichokes and my fiancé had ravioli. It was real Italian and not too touristy.

Face it - you are in Little Italy amongst dozens of options. There is definitely a get them in and get them out mentality and little in the way of differentiation. It wouldn't surprise me to find out that several of the restaurants are owned by the same folks. I knew this going in and wasn't disappointed. The food was... More

( We should have left like one party we saw) He seated us took our drink and appetizer order and immediately tried to upsell us. He... More

This shrimp dish was just amazing. If something subtle could scream this dish would have. The shrimp was perfectly cooked and butterflied nicely. The sauce was the star though.
