Rustic and romantic

It has both indoor and faux-outdoor sections so whether you prefer the liveliness of the bar or the candlelit "garden", you can enjoy your tasty meal. The pizza and calzone are very good, but their specials... read more

Nestled in the heart of Williamsburg,this place that offers delicious food and service with a smile. Excellent food, excellent service, cozy place, and a good live music plays while you eat Friday night! Best Pizza , best Handmade Fettuccine di Zafferano Orto e Mare and good Barolo red wine.

If Italian then go there, eat in a spot that hasn't launched to serve the flocking tourists but actually was there before 99% of restaurants existed in the burg. The food is excellent, pasta, pizza or meat, all are fantastic. a great option in the burg, i highly recommend.

I was reminded of my favorite Trattoria in Florence. This even included the lemoncello at the meals end. Walking in the front bar area had small antipasta plates the same as in Italy. We sat in the back which was quite charming, the service was cheerful & prompt. The food was incredible, we started with the Artichoke App, it was... More

The only reason why I'm giving this restaurant 4-stars is because the service was awful and we sat in the waiting area for about an hour before anyone spoke to us (I have no idea why we stuck around)! We couldn't even order drinks at the bar because no one was there. Literally, people would walk behind the bar and... More

Very kind staff-members, fantastic pizza (almost as in Napoli) and the price is really fair. The decor is garden-like and sets a great atmosphere. Definitely worth a visit.

This place is so cute and very surprisingly authentic. The staff is really nice and remembered me and my friend when we went back. They have gluten free pasta which is amazing if you have celiac disease.

The restaurant was decorated nicely and our waiter was very friendly. We ordered a pizza and it was ok, but could of been cooked a little longer. Our drinks (Banana Kiss Margarita) were $12 each, and there was only about 4-5oz of cocktail with all the ice in the glass. Had we known how much the drink was and how... More
