“Italian Food and BYOB At Its Best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

We arrived on rainy Saturday night at about 7:45 to be greeted by a packed dining room and a happy greeting. We were told that there was a 20 minute wait before we could be seated. We sat down and within 10 minutes were sipping a glass wine at our table! The server was prompt and friendly. The menu wax extensive (pizza to lobster with a variety of well described Italian specialties). The mussels appetizer was perfect. The linguini with shrimp, clams, and scallops was outstanding (personal preference - I would have like a bit more linguini). A guitar player played while we dined. The room was intimate with all tables filled. Thanks to the staff for providing a great dining experience. We will be back!

“Don't Skip the Soup”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

We have eaten here many times for years, the food is always wonderful! We live close by so I usually stop in once a week and take out a few quarts of their delicious soups. Their salads are always ultra fresh, and after eating there on Thanksgiving 2012, I wish they would put turkey dinner on their menu, it was so good.......

“Jersey Shore Italian with family atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Good food reasonably priced with fantastic service from a friendly staff. It always feels like visiting with family when we walk in the door and the owner greets us by first names and asks about our family.
