We have been eating here since 1994, back when it was a tiny restaurant and it took an hour to get in. Well it's much larger now and the wait is usually not bad, but the food is still outstanding and very inexpensive for what you get. Being from NJ I grew up with many Italian restaurants all around me,... More

We are in town for a wedding and met family here for dinner. I was so impressed! The food was AMAZING!! I ordered one of the specials which was linguini with a Gorgonzola cream sauce, spinach, roasted tomatoes, and sirloin. The steak looked medium rare and was incredibly tender. The dish was amazing. My daughter ordered the Mac and cheese... More

We had not visited in many months, but were every bit as pleased this time. The menu is extensive and everything we tasted was delicious: The shrimp marinara appetizer, the creamy pasta barbaresca, the unctuous chicken parmigiana and the chicken cannelloni...and a not too Italian chocolate brownie turtle cake. A word to the wise: Reserve in advance or get there... More

My husband and I have visited twice. Both times the wait staff was friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. They do have some outdoor seating along the sidewalk. Both times the food was amazing. The lemoncello is imported directly from Italy! This is a great place for couples or small groups.

This is a great little secret for those of us in the Lakewood, CO area. So you out of towners don't read this. Cute little restaurant located in a strip mall. The food is OFF THE CHARTS. First time I was there I ordered buffalo. It was okay, but covered in a white sauce, and couldn't really taste the meat.... More

A very unassuming typical family run restaurant in a strip mall. The food is excellent. The wine selection is very good and reasonably priced. They generally do not accept reservations except for large groups. Be prepared to wait for a table for up to 45 minutes or more if you come around 6-7pm especially on a weekend. There is a... More

It's always a great meal here! Love it. Never had a bad plate of food! I had the buffalo al jordano and it was delish! The sauce was to die for. Enjoyed with a glass of Woop Woop Shiraz. Yum!

We continue to frequent this Restaraunt. Food is good, especially their specials. Plan on getting to Restaraunt when they open, as they fill up quickly. After you order, the service is quick and food brought out really fast. We call this our fast food alternative, as we can be finished in 30-40 min. after being seated. You can sip wine... More
