This place is super yummy and the people there are very nice! Although I order to go, they treated me like I was going to sit it.

We were taken here by locals. I knew before we walked in it would be good, judging by the crowd of people waiting on the sidewalk. Luckily we had a table waiting. Delicious pasta, fresh vegetables and crushed tomatoes. Nice wait staff. Since it was busy we didn't feel we could linger, and as most corner joints are, it was... More

Looking for somewhere new locally, happened upon this listing in TripAdvisor (thank goodness - not sure I would have found the restaurant just by looking!). The menu looked luscious, so we gave it a try, crossed our fingers that we wouldn't need to call ahead on a Friday night as long as we got there soon after opening. Let me... More

We tried this cozy neighborhood restaurant on the advice of TA reviews and were not disappointed. The service was top notch from all staff. We love when everyone takes care of the tables and that's what they did here. Water empty? Someone brings you another carafe. Plates empty? Someone takes them. For appetizers, we had the fried artichoke and mussles.... More

Went here on a Tuesday night, it was busy but we were able to get a table. Had the deep fried artichoke to start which was something I haven't tried before - it was very good and I will definitely be having this again. Had special risotto which was great, although quite rich so I couldn't manage it all. Great... More

We selected Mio Vicino from TA reviews since it was a quick drive from our hotel. The restaurant is on the small side and was very crowded on our first visit on a Friday night. Nonethless the staff very cheerfully directed us to the last open table, and promptly brought us bread with olive oil and roasted garlic. We followed... More

This is a great Italian restaurant that's open for both lunch and dinner (they close from 3:00-5:00 pm). The food is freshly prepared using high quality ingredients and is very flavorful. The host, servers, and kitchen staff are all friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend this restaurant if you are in the area.

I always ask the waitress to add a couple handfuls of spinach thrown in the baked Penne dish. DELISH !! Raviolis, Spaghetti/meatballs also a favorite. Can never finish the whole dish, there is so much of it.
