I Felt Like I was being Pushed to eat faster and get out!

Have eaten here 3-4 times, service has always been great, and the food just as good. Our server was nice, friendly, and has been there awhile. We ordered our wine, got an appetizer, and before we'd finished half of it, our salad arrived, and the meal within 5 minutes. The good news is, the food... read more

Great service, great food in a family-owned setting. Food was very good. Eight friends enjoyed a variety of dishes and all were satisfied with the portion size and preparation.

We visited on New Years Eve 2015 and to be honest I didn't expect the usual great service and food since they were so busy. I was surprised and impressed!!! The Alla Positano seafood special was the best I ever had of this classic dish. Our waiter was a young man but his service was impeccable; ask for Harrison. A... More

If you like a convenient traditional family-owned Italian restaurant that has been creating great food for many years, look no further. First, the servers are experienced, efficient and respectful, and many are family members. The pasta is cooked just right ... the traditional spaghetti with meat sauce is my favorite, although my wife likes to experiment a little more (and... More

We have been there several times before but not recently. We went there for our anniversary the other night and were very satisfied. The selection was excellent and although I chose the Shrimp Scallops Linguine dish - I didn't know there would be so many tomatoes - I should have gotten the "create your own" where you pick the pasta...

2nd time here and food was as wonderful as the first time. Did not have to long at all for a table or the food and it was on a Friday night after 6:30pm. Highly recommended.

For this restaurant to be located in a high volume location, it is always empty and now know why. This family venue just needs to become current in its Italian cooking methods. The food was not fresh from the pizza to the parm. We couldn't eat the food at all. The staff however was AMAZING as they told their family... More

Solid Italian food. Big portions. Would go back. The zucchini frites were awesome. Veal parmigiana didn't taste as fresh as the chicken parmigiana.

I absolutely love this restaurant and have had an amazing experience each time I've been. The owner, Frank is a delightful Italian man and treats Greensboro to some of the finest Italian cuisine I've ever had. The chicken Parmesan is always tasty, and the portion is quite generous. I had a grouper pasta dish that was out of this world... More
