We visited with a group of seven and had varied opinions, so overall, I'm giving this place three stars. Ravioli was good. Linguini was good. Marinara sauce was thick, chunky and delicious. My chicken parmigiana, however, was dry, stringy and inedible. My husband told me his sausage was overcooked and dry, but even so, I asked for sausage to replace my chicken, and got the same, dry, hard sausage (though it was better then the chicken). Fried calamari was hard and rubbery. Service was very slow. 10 minutes before anyone took our drink order. 20 till we got our bread, and we received just one basket for a large party (same size as was given to tables for two or four). 30 minutes before they even took our dinner order. Hmm, the more I write, the more I wonder why we stayed, but we were tired after a long day of sightseeing and enjoying each other's company. Cannoli for dessert was good, but much sweeter and creamier than traditional cannoli. (I don't generally like cannoli, which is probably why I liked this. The filling was more like frosting than traditional cannoli filling.) Overall, if you go to this restaurant, stick with the pasta, and pass on the meats.
