Our favorite Italian restaurant. Quiet atmosphere with Italian host. Great menu to choose from. Great for special occasions. Recommend the chicken Samantha or the chicken Garozzo. You will not be disappointed I guarantee.

Dinner is really a romanic atmosphere, but lunch is a great value, you get a lot of food and at. Reasonable prices. The food is excellent and the service is attentive. Great sauce.

The pasta is doused in sauce. I'm guessing the sauce is on the pasta for quite some time before its served...possibly even cooked in the sauce because the sauces are not only plentiful but the pastas are soggy from soaking it up. I hated it. That being said, my husband LOVED it. He said it was the best spaghetti he'd... More

Dish was the best Italian food that I have had in years.my date had the D'Angelo which was also a chicken dish with garlic, basil, spinach and cheese this was also outstanding.

We were traveling and went to this restaurant based upon a recommendation from locals. We were seated immediately and our waitress was very kind and efficient. No issues with the service. One person in our party sent her entree back because it was just barely warm. A couple other people in our party had the same issue but chose not... More

When you see an Italian restaurant shown in the movies you get a dark quiet place full of Italians, with candles on the tables, and Sinatra or Martin in the background. This perfectly describes the atmosphere here. The food is all wonderful. The chicken spedini is terrific. I love the cannelloni as well. It has a slightly sweet creamy tomato... More

We went to this restaurant after a long day of meetings. I had been there once before and wasn't too impressed. This time around I actually had a fairly good meal. I had the Lobster Roll and a bowl of Clam Chowder. Both were considered appetizers. The chowder had a fairly good amount of clams and had a good taste.... More

Wasn't expecting much in this place off the side of the road, but after reading the reviews decided to try it. Was pleasantly surprised! The staff is wonderful, warm and friendly. Make a great manhattan too! The seafood pasta was wonderful. The atmosphere is old fashioned, dimly lit with Sinatra and Dean Martin playing in the background. Great experience!

This is a classic favorite! Great food, atmosphere, and service. You never go wrong choosing to eat here. The chicken parm excellent, the candied carrots are unbelievably good and all the pasta is wonderful! A small tip if you can don't fill up on the bread they bring you because I could eat a whole loaf it's so good.
