A coworker and I were talking about NY pizza. He suggested I try this place out for some of the best pizza. He should know he's from Chicago. He said the dishes they have are great as well. So that Saturday the wife and decided to go. We got there about 4:30 because he warned me the place gets crowded.... More

This restaurant was a complete surprise! Never expected to have the BEST chicken piccata, Neapolitan pizza, and spaghetti w clams in Aurora, Colorado! If you want to experience superb Italian food in a relaxed family environment, this place is a must visit! Nothing fancy--just delicious food. We also tried the cannoli, Italian cookies, cream puffs, and almond croissants. Very good... More

When a friend recommended this place for dinner, I thought they only served dessert. What a pleasant surprise. It is a family business and everyone works their tail off. The place was packed but the service was great. The portions are well sized, not overloaded. Everyone at our table enjoyed their entree. We will definitely be back!

If you are looking for authentic Italian food on the east side of town, this is the place. The pasta, the meets and veggies and especially the pizza are top notch and authentic. Oh, did I mention the calzones!! Get the extra sauce for anything, it is amazing.

We've gone in there a couple of times now for dinners. The servers are all so friendly, energetic & engaging. The owner/chef makes a point to greet the tables personally and check on the food. And the food....OMG....the food is to die for! Plan on leaving stuffed to the brim and quite happy. They are not at all shy with... More

Appetizers and entrees are excellent. We shared the Kitchen Sink Pasta and each had a Greek Salad. The salad dressing was marvelous. Too full for dessert but they looked so good we couldn't pass them up. (They have a whole room of fresh and frozen desserts including gelato). We picked out a Napoleon and Tirimisu to go. Napoleon was yummy,... More

This is a family owned Italian restaurant probably with family recipes. The food is good, not big time chef quality but good. The prices are modest with most entrees around $15.00. You can mix and match as you want. They have great desserts and gelato right there as well. I believe beer and wine only. Pizza and calzones looked really... More
