“Top-Notch Cuisine / So-So Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

GREAT food and service, but not the place to go for a quiet romantic dinner. VERY lively and LOUD, as the dining room is very small and the bustle of servers constantly brushing past our table was a bit distracting. BUT, the cannelloni, gnochi, grilled artichokes and chianti were well worth the ambiance deficiency.

“Great local Italian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

Great food & wine - this is populated by locals & serves great food. The Cannoli at the end was probably the best I have had. Thoroughly recommended for a bistro atmosphere.

“Surprise gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

One of the best Italian restaurants I've ever dined in any where in the world, including Italy, which has marvelous cuisine. Darling atmosphere, great vibe, wonderful menu, delicious food and great service. All the way around a great experience. Memorable and quite fine, would return in a heartbeat. (Had the chicken marsala which was a massive surprise - serviced over polenta, perfectly prepared and truly delicious.) Enjoy.

“A Brave Venture in a nondescript place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014

Shoehorned into a small strip center, between a Fish Store and a UPS Store and a Convenience Store and an Insurance Office; someone took a look and realized that what this place needed was a TRATTORIA ???
I am timid and afraid to ask for fear of the Sneer!
But we went there when it was new and liked it, although we were lonely. The next time, it was Jammed with happy people. It is wildly popular.
The food is pretty good, too.

“A good place gone bad”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

We have eaten here a couple of times. Good food at a reasonable although noisy. This time it was terrible and they raised the prices. We had tasteless risotto balls. A chicory salad that had a lot of ridicchio, which was not in the description, and it was warm. The canaloni just did not taste right. The eggplant parm was so tough I hand to use a knife and a could not find any eggplant. The marinara overly salty. The canoli was so small and to lemony but tasteless. Just nor good.
