Pasta prepared daily from scratch, mouth watering reduction sauces, terrific combinations of flavors, healthy portions, great service. One of the finest Italian restaurants in the Valley.

Crowded spot but worth the wait. Pasta and sandwiches are both good and authentic Italian. Prices are reasonable and portions are large. BYOB

Average, at best. I'm sure there are better Italian restaurants in the area. Yes, it's a short review. This restaurant doesn't deserve any more of my time.

My daughter has been talking non-stop about this restaurant for the past couple of years. I have been weary with Italian restaurants in the state, so we never made attempts to dine here. I'm telling you, my husband and I will travel to New York City for an Italian meal, but we can save all of that time now that... More

The food is always excellent! It can be a little crowed as it is a small restaurant, but even if you must wait, it will be worth the wait.

I've been to this restaurant a few times and really like it. I suggest going when the weather is nice, when it's cold the inside is really too small to deal with the crowds they get. And don't go unless like I you love the smell of garlic, it will be with you for days.

We were visiting Bethlehem and we liked the place so much, we went back the next night. On our first night my wife and I shared an antipasto. My... More

Our group of four really enjoyed our meal here and our service from "Nathan." The small restaurant was packed and we were lucky to get the only free table. Upon arrival we were quickly greeted by Nathan with a delicious basket of hot garlic mini loaves. He explained the restaurant is BYOB but offered us a complimentary glass of wine,... More

8 of us had a 6:pm reservation. The food was mediocre at best. The waiter put the check on the table at 7:15 and they were practically ushering us out. We said that we would like coffee and dessert but we were told that they were too busy and could take what we wanted to go. We were shocked. As... More
