“Check Your Bill Carefully”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Had a party 25 adults, 15 kids. Kids were $18.00 each as agreed. When we received the bill they tried to charge $35.00 per child for French Fries and Chicken Fingers. Were told its now busy season and they could have filled the room with all adults. We refused to pay the $35.00 and they threaten me and my wife and then called the police. Police came and we ended up paying the $18.00. Stay away from this place so many other better restaurants on Staten Island. Bunch of liars and cheats running this place.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

The food was good, prices were ok to a little high, but nice portions. Service was ok, not great. Bring a sweater, it's freezing year round.

“Don't bother..”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

When this place opened, bing in the neighborhood, I tried it. It was good. Not fabulous, just good. It's been a few years and we tied it again on a sunday for a family dinner. First of all, the place was freezing. I said it 3x in earshot of our waiter who was just awful. He seemed very inexperienced & was hard to communicate with. Really needs training before you get your own table I would think. The retaurant was pretty empty too. long story short, I'd never ever go back. The food was blah.. All of it... Nothing stood out, nothing was delicious. I felt bad cause it was my idea to go there. We made the best of it, but t wasn't a good experience at all.

“Excellent Italian food!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

Nice atmosphere, delicious food, and excellent service! This definitely deserves a visit! The chicken martini and veal saltimboca are to die for! Extensive wine list.

“A classy place with good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

We wanted to try this restaurant for a while now, so we went there on Valentimes day ..
What a great decision! The atmosphere was classy yet cozy... the food delicious - wheatear you have their specials or the traditional on the menu - we had both - equally good!
The service very friendly.. We liked it so much that a week later we went back for lunch..during the week they offer a prix fix dinner and lunch-wich was excellent!
We will definitely come back again!
