“It Just Doesn't Get Any Better”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

New Owners perhaps a year or two ago, but I was told original cook staff trained new staff. Is it still good - Absolutely. Food you could die for. Wait Staff overwhelms you with service and quick response time. I'm a local who lives on the Island - my personal favorite. A few others are good - but his is my favorite.

“Good Italian food! Huge servings! Nice family atmosphere.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

I've had the chicken parmigiana a few times, and also their veal scallopini. The portions are big, so I never order an appetizer.
This is a fun place to eat. Nice atmosphere, nice music, friendly family business.

“Not that impressed ”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

We ate here for our last evening on SPI. My husband and I shared a pasta with asiago dish (for which they charged us a "sharing" charge of an additional $4 for some lettuce consisting of drenched in oil/vinegar 2 olives and 2 Greek peppers). The dish was very overdone on the cheese and was not very good. My daughters both ordered fettuccini Alfredo and the cheese was very gritty like it was not melted properly. The oil dipping sauce was made with balsamic vinegar so very strange. One of my daughters ordered hers with shrimp at an added coat of about $1 per shrimp. Definately not worth it. The ambiance was the only thing worthwhile at this establishment. Don't waste your money.
