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.

Ten retired teachers settled in for our monthly lunch. 8 of the 10 asked for separate checks. There was no problem with that. The checks didn't have a gratuity added where many places do with groups. I ordered the featured soup--artichoke spinach. It was cream based and delicious! I also had parmesan zucchini with a side of penne pasta. Also... More

Staff was courteous. The ambiance was cozy and friendly. The portions served were more than enough for one person. The quality of the food was just okay. We had sampled about four - five different dishes (pasta, carne, antipasti and chicken) and the meals were on the bland side and a tad oily -- not a lot of seasoning /... More

This was recommended to us by the inn keeper of the B & B we stayed at in Independence and well worth it. The place does look kind of like a dive to borrow another reviewer's words on the outside but is quaint and somewhat intimate on the inside depending on where u r seated. I had the linguine alls...

Currently my favorite restaurant! It looks kind of like a dive from the outside, but walk in and your are transformed to a place of comfort and relaxation. The service is always courteous and prompt. The meal portions are usually of a size that require a take home box, they make two meals easily. I am a seafood lover, my... More
