Great Italian Cuisine and sea food. Family atmosphere. Great wait staff, make you feel at home except you don't have to do dishes when your done. Italian sausages to die for.

“Why is this place so popular?????”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

Had the misfortune to dine there tonight. Based on the brisk business they were doing I anticipated an enjoyable meal. This was not the case at all. Pardon my French but they have some big brass ones by reffering to their establishment as "Italian". At best it was mall food. Most of the dishes at our table were bland and devoid of freshness and flavor. The Calimari tasted like one of Sysco's lower level offerings. My Chicken Saltimbocca was as bland as tap water. The service was not bad, not great either. The wines were pathetic.
The place is a complete enigma to me. A poor attempt at Italian-American. So close to some of the best Italian on the east coast no less! Take the drive into Boston and have the real deal for the same price.

“Wouldnt go back”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

The hostess made us wait for what seemed forever while she finished chewing what she was eating. Then she spent some more time selling Keno tickets. The food was poor. How hard is it to make a decent sauce? The food was suprisingly poor. The bread stale tasting. Im suprised there are as many people eating there.
