“Really Nice Italian eatery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2012

On top of the regular Italian (southern-Sicilian) menu, they have nice creative pizzas, paninis and other; good imaginative appetizers. The patio tables are nice for a summer evening; service is good.

“I miss places like this.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2011

Living in rural Massachusetts, we just don't have any of these really great neighborhood Italian restaurants.....and this is really tops. We drove 3 hours for a get-together of cousins and came here for dinner. Wow! The baskets of bread they start you with are great; some plain, some with onion and cheese, garlic....all warm and very fresh. We divvied up some appetizers, such as the fried calamari, perfectly done, but needed a bigger dish of the marinara sauce, and we also had an amazing bruschetta and a caprese salad. Our main courses were huge, piping hit, and wonderful. There were 8 of us and we each ordered something different and everyone was very pleased. Can't wait for our next get-together here. Worth 3 hours on the road.

I have had many things from the menu and everything is delicious! If it's on the specials get the steak!
