A very pleasant place to dine. The staff was pleasant and very courteous. Almost all the seafood items on the menu were "market price." There were four of us. We all shared the Table Salad, and it was delicious. Two ordered the scallops. One serving was just right; the other was almost burned. The veal scallopini sauce was very good,... More

They have a wonderful lunch menu which is prepared fresh and served hot. Nice open feel to the dining room with plenty of light.

The food is good basic Italian and the wine is cold. Nice neighborhood place you can go with a crowd. Prices are reasonable.

We attended a very special birthday with a set menu paid for by a niece. The gathering was great but not because of the restaurant. Signiture pasta lived up to its reputation but you sure weren't going to get seconds no matter how you asked; the same for the salad, bread, etc. Most of the staff were teenagers with little...

The pizza has an interesting twist to it (I won't tell - you'll have to try it for yourself!). The salads are fresh and the service is pretty good. I would go back.

Been here a few times...Nothing ever changes. The menu has been the same for 10 years..It's consistently mediocre and it's not cheap. I love the "just like Grandma's" comments - my Nonna would laugh...You can have a better meal elsewhere for comparable prices.

I have had the opportunity over the years to experience a variety of food from their menu In restaurant as well as its catering section. The Waite staff has always been professional and courteous and the food is superb. The atmosphere presents itself as family oriented, so you can take your family for an evening out or enjoy a special... More

Absolutely horrible experience. I recently had my bridal shower at Testos. Matt (who truly was absolutely great, sincere, and very patient) helped us plan the layout and menu. On the day of the shower, everything that could go wrong did go wrong. To begin, the party started at 12pm, and the staff had not finished setting up the tables yet.... More

This is a family-style restaurant with delicious home-made pasta, and HUGE portions! The food is consistently very good and reasonably priced. They are usually busy, so don't expect to go for a quick bite.

Two friends and I had lunch here one weekday. The restaurant is lovely, with white tablecloths and dark furniture. The service was outstanding. The food was delicious. One of us had eggplant parmigiano, another had lasagna with a meat sauce, and I had bow ties with sweet Italian sausage and broccoli rabe. I had a glass (generous) of pinot noir... More
