“Disappointing evening”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Bill, Shari, Pat and Jim showed up for our 7:00 reservation at 6:50. We were greeted by a crowd of nearly 20 people, several of whom had not been seated for their 6:30 reservations. By 7:40 we were seated and given plenty of time to study the menu.We finally placed our appetizer order about 25 minutes after being seated and our dinner order 20 minutes after that. The four of us ordered 2 appetizers. Strangely, they showed up 15 minutes apart. Pat and Jim were long done their order of muscles by the time our pizza showed up....not very good timing. Fortunately, the dishes were very tasty even though the muscle order was a bit small. About 30 minutes later our entree's arrived. Pat ordered the chicken parm and was very disappointed. The chicken was soggy and bland. Shari and I ordered a pasta dish with crabmeat and blush sauce. It was good but the combined amount of crabmeat in our 2 dishes might have totalled a mouthful. Jim was the dinner winner with a chicken and vegetable dish with artichoke. It was prepared nicely and we all agreed that it was by far the best of our dishes. Overall, I'd have to say we were very disappointed with our visit. For a $160 evening, I don't fel we received value.

“A authentic taste of Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Terrific Italian food in a great atmosphere. The friendly staff provides suggestions from a full menu of dishes. Fresh pasta cooked just right and whole fish selections prepared table side.
One of the best BYOB restaurants in the region. You wont be disappointed.

Our family has been going to this restaurant for 15 years now. The food is so awesome, try the Laceno Pizza.

“Very Good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

My family and I love going here when we want good Italian close to home. I personally like the fact that you get smaller portions, but good tasting food. It is a little pricey and the service is good but not overly friendly. I would definitely recommend this restaurant when you want to stay local and don't have time to go to Philly.
