“A trip to Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

Treated like family, food is great, service is top notch. My grandchildren love coming here, the calamari is their favorite appetizer they can't get enough of it.

“A taste of traditional Italy in PA”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Our dinner here last Sat night more than made up for several other mediocre dining experiences in the Newtown area last weekend. Based on other reviews in Tripadvisor, we made reservations for 730pm. The restaurant was definitely busy and a number of others were waiting for their reservations when we arrived. We only waited about 10 minutes for our table. Unfortunately, we didn't realize it was BYOB, but the hostess pointed out a wine shop just down the block. Our server Bruno was exactly what we wanted - personable, accommodating and helpful without being intrusive. We started with stuffed zucchini blossoms and hot peppers - so very good! I had the veal sorrentino which was tender enough to cut with a butter knife; and my husband enjoyed the tilapia puttenesca. We LOVED the side of broccoli rabe - tender, garlicy and perfect! We were not rushed at all - and enjoyed the ambiance of the room. We were seated toward the back of the second inside room (just before you head out to their patio) and loved being tucked a little away from the walk way. The portions were perfect - not too much and it left room for dessert. The espresso was hot and smooth. We shared a freshly made cannoli - and are very glad we did! We will not hesitate to make reservations here in the future!
