Absolutely delicious! We were here last year and fell in love. This trip we got carry out and it was as awesome as we remembered. The lasagna is the best I have ever had. Chicken parmigiana was perfect. Spaghetti and meat balls was great. Garlic...bread to die for and last but not least a key lime pie from Heaven. After 5 days of seafood it was a great change and loved itMore

We went for a light dinner. No wait! I got salad & breadsticks. It was what I wanted after a heavy lunch. The salad was good but made with iceberg lettuce which is not my favorite. It was served in large bowl for the table...to share. We got about 12 breadsticks with my order. Our server was wearing a mask.More

We had a date night here and the food and service was excellent. We had a great relaxing time and it was as good of Italian food anywhere.

The food was excellent! I personally had the baked ziti which is one of the best I’ve had ever! That says a lot considering I was born in Italy, and fell in love with Italian food from a young age. The garlic cheese bread was...delicious as well. The atmosphere was very welcoming, and the wait staff was very friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend this place!More

We went here twice. The first time I had lasagna (excellent) and the next time 4 of us shared a pizza which was super. Good service and live music on Thursday which was nice (not too loud). Will definitely go back!

I had a great experience. I ordered the tuna steak, medium, with a dill mushroom and onion sauce. It was delicious! It was served with the house salad, which was good. The house salad was iceberg lettuce, cherry tomatoes, black olives, croutons and an italian...dressing. The tuna was the star of the show though. I wanted to try something different from my usual Italian fare, and even though the Eggplant Parmigiana was very tempting ( and I was told by a dining companion, very good) I was so happy I ordered the tuna. It was cooked perfectly. The only observation I would add, is that it could have used a garnish of fresh dill, chopped parley or diced green onions to make it look more appealing. Our waiter was new, and he had 7 tables to contend with, which, IMHO, is 3 tables too many. So the service was a little slow. We all received free soft serve ice cream for dessert, which was really nice.More

Read other reviews and went with some trepidation, I am happy we did. Dinner party of 4 was a busy Friday night, waited about 15 minutes for a table, we we seated and wait staff walked by and said Ishe would be right back. She...served another table their food and was back. We all had drinks and if you like Manhattans they make a nice one maybe a little sweet for some. Get the bruschetta it was delicious! We all had different dinners and no one had any complaints unusual as we have one fussy eater in the group . Salad and bread are included. The house made marinara (to die for) comes with the bread. Fabulous waitress (Robin?) great food and food service was timed perfectly, We will go back next time we are in the area.More

They have a Web page for contact for reervations.Have only used the main dining room and area near the bar, which is also where the music is.

As locals we will never go back. It is a tourist trap that uses the excellent reputation of the previous owners. None of our friends will go back due to bad service, high drink prices and poor food.
