Terrific little place on "The Ave". Friendly environment awaits you as you pass through the doors. The bar is cozy and the bartender is generous. The menu is complete from pizza to fine entries. Elio, the owner, is present through most of the evening, checking...More

Service was not good. They did not tell us when we arrived they had no pizza. Also told us they had no garlic bread, then another server brought out garlic bread. It was cold and drafty in the restaurant so they said they would close...More

Perhaps we visited on one of the restaurant's busiest nights of the week: Saturday. Except this was supposed to have been a birthday dinner celebration. Although we made reservations on Open Table we were shown to a table in their upstairs offshoot dining room. This...More
