The food is not bad, but the service was quite unprecise ( dosent mean bad ) but not so italian style. Positive is the quantity, very big. Overall suggest for American not for Italian.

This is a real Italian restaurant. The Chef (Pepino) a first generation Italian, American, his Mother supervises the kitchen staff and his Dad is the public relations person. The food is simple and delicious, (especially the Veal Cathatore) and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming.
