Very good food; very slow service

We ate here on an earlier trip and chose it again. It is 1/3 mile from the I-95 Hampton Inn in a strip mall. The Italian food is very well prepared, but the owner needs to hire more staff than his immediate family, since they can't handle even a half-filled restaurant. The service was VERY slow... read more

Visiting in town and told my friend I was in mood for Italian. We ended up here. Way too many good sounding items on menu. Made it hard for us to choose. Staff was attentive and friendly. Food was excellent. I could eat here regularly.

My salad caprezze was good but too drenched in balsamic oil but my eggplant parm was very good with a side of pasta. Had 2 glasses of red wine (corked) but what the hey. Got out quick for under $30. Owner came to table and was nice. I walked from the Hampton Inn. There were some old grumpy Floridians in... More

Wife and I visited for an evening meal. Farfalle Al Francisco, glass of pino, Plattovita Felice, and a water along with a coupon free shrimp/squid appetizer. $55 with tip. The shrimp and scallops that were part of these dishes tasted frozen and tough as were the squid. The clams were also way over cooked The garlic sauce was very bland... More

We arrived at 5:30pm on a Saturday night. There were two tables already seated. A table of 4 and a table of 3. The four top already had their appetizers. We ordered our meals, no appetizers, no drinks. Linguini and clams and a veal parmigiana. It took 45 minutes before our meals came out and when it did, it was... More

My husband and I were looking for Italian food for dinner and this restaurant was recommended by our hotel. We were not disappointed. The food was very good and also very reasonably priced. It was located in a strip mall a block away from our hotel. Since we arrive late on a Sunday night (6/24/15 around 8:00) there were only... More

Found this little Italian restaurant in a strip mall a block or so from my hotel. From the outside, it didn't look like much, but we were hungry and decided to try it. We were promptly and cordially greeted as soon as we entered, and seated, although we did not have a reservation. The Dining Room appeared freshly painted with... More

We got there about 8:00 p.m. The restaurant had about 8 tables in use with many more open and set, we waited about 10 minutes to be seated (I don't know why it took so long since... More

Met friends for lunch and we got there at 11:30. Sign said open but door was locked. Owner came along about 5 minutes later saying no one ever came at 11. He opened up the restaurant, and served us. We all (4) had different dishes and everything was excellent. They don't have a lunch menu so portions were large (we... More
