This is somewhat of a neighborhood Italian restaurant with all Italians owning and working here. Lots of great specials each night, homemade pasta, great clams in butter and garlic, and wines by the glass at $10... More

The atmosphere was nice and the place was clean. The service was attentive but slow. The food was very good but not outstanding. Baked clams were okay. Pasta was excellent. . Desserts were average.

Good food. A very relaxed setting. There were more specials than main courses which was quite confusing. The food was very good though and the portions were generous. The price was very good compared to Manhattan.

The food and service were very good. The menu and specials were varied and quite a selection. There was a large selection of wines to chose from as well as mixed drinks. To top it all off there was also a large selection of deserts and coffees. All in all a very pleasant experience.
