I decided to order the Chicken Francaise , I knew as soon as it was set down that it looked completely wrong. It is supposed to be in a light egg... More

The pizza was great, big pies with great flavor and a good crust. The beers were cold and the service was good. I will eat here or order takeout again..

the fresh-baked bread is awesome. My friend had the snapper with spinach, delicious! I had the Zuppa- shellfish and linguine with a garlic wine sauce, one of the best I have had in a long time. As a chef myself and of Sicilian decent, I found only two things off....the food was seasoned well though a tiny bit on the... More

If you are expecting fancy cuisine, you will be disappointed. But if you are looking for delicious Italian food and friendly service, this is a great place for you. We always go here when we're in town, and everything we've tried has been delicious. Also, extra points for their gluten-free options. Here's a tip: you can go see Nico in... More

Went here again after 4 years. My experience was much better. Salade was good, perhaps a little too much dressing. Bread was very good as was Chicken Parmesean entre. I rated it 3 stars 4 years ago, and it is definitely better than that. Prices seem to have held, so it is a better value now.

Eventually they were turned down to a bearable level. I ordered Eggplant Parmesan from their Vegetarian portion of the menu. The rolls served were... More

The town of Dewey Beach charges $30.00 for parking anywhere on public property and fines are hefty. The parking hounding is not conducive to a pleasant vacation.
