“Pricey but worth it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Always a favorite for a good meal and a nice staff. The prices are high but at least you know you are getting something good. Worthy of a special occasion.

“Excellent but bring your wallet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

Service and food are excellent. On the downside the restaurant and bar area are cramped primarily because it is always full. I have eaten here several times and it is consistently very good. The service is the best instamford. Grandma's homemade ravioli in sage and butter sauce was to some of the best pasta dishes I have ever had. Wine list is extensive with many delicious choices but unfortunately you have to pay a premium here. You get what you pay for.

“Years and years”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2012

Started coming to this restaurant in 1995 and it's just gotten better over the years. It's the real deal when it comes to Italian - anywhere bar none. Highly recommend.

“The only reason I am giving this 4 stars is the price is stupid high”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

LOVE the food. Their home made pasta is to die for. And its worth the price but you completely get jacked on the Wine prices. So just watch that if you are going to go there.

“Perfecto!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

Simply excellent in every way. Delicious, authentic Italian food. Bustling, every table booked, but still good service and not too noisy so that you could not comfortably talk with your dinner companions.
