As an executive chef and business owner my standards are extremely high. Began my training before culinary school under a darling Italian lady named Borelli in MA, so I know the genuine article when I taste it, and this was the real thing! The house family recipe for Italian dressing is not to be missed. Salad was crisp and fresh, a more exotic mix of greens and gourmet calamatas would be a nice upgrade though. Service was attentive, friendly, and welcoming without being overwhelming. The guys got the pepperoni pizza. The crust was the real deal too. Not refrigerator dough. I got the capellini marinara with sausage and peppers. In my book any Italian place worth it's salt knows to serve pasta with a large spoon for proper "twirling" and eating. They didn't fail me!! I didn't even have to ask!! Pasta was perfecto al dente! Not mushy. Very good!! The only addition I could suggest is an upgrade to a good crusty artisan bread served warm, sliced, and with a top quality olive oil played with good seasonings, parmagiana cheese, and a sprinkle of fresh basil ribbons. Entire experience was excellente!! We will be back for sure!!!!
