Location and contact

Where the Mediterranean Sea meets the shore, In Italy, lies Cinque Terre, or "Five Villages". The turquoise waters and fertile soil here nurture a wealth of culinary treasures, like superb seafood, pesto, porcini mushrooms and wine. Gifted Italian-born Chef Aldo Marcon honed his skills in his grandma's kitchen pretending he was the "Amaretto Cookie Chef". Broadened his horizons by studying at the prestigious Carlo Porta culinary school in Milan, afterwards wowing his way through many notable kitchens like the well-known Cafe Fiorello in Manhattan. He eventually moved to New Orleans, where he cooked alongside such famed chefs as Emeril Lagasse and Mario Batali. Cultural flare and culinary delights

We came here for a treat for our daughter who is a student in the area, the food was delicious. Decor is very eclectic but nice. A bit pricey but had some nice specials that made it more affordable. A hidden gem.

Weeknight visit, not busy at all. We were a party of 5, three of which chose the daily special, lobster stuffed ravioli. I can’t speak as to the quality of the other two dishes, although both were only half-eaten, but aside from the starter salad,...More

We frequent this place a lot. I have noticed that the quality of the food is declining as is the service. Had the Spinach Fettuccine Alfredo with Chicken. The Alfredo sauce was thin like soup. It had no taste. It was like they used milk...More

Their Limoncello Cake was to die for! So flavorful. Everything was so delicious. It was nice they had $5 wine for Ladies but unfortunately that rate did not apply with using a Groupon.

It is obvious that the pasta here is homemade. All of us had some type of pasta dish and we loved all of them. The braised red in red wine sauce on my dish was excellent with big chunks of meat. The portions were perfect....More

A cozy family owned restaurant! This is one of our favorite restaurants, especially on week days for the very affordable 3 course meal. I adore their short rib rigatoni, even the gluten free pasta is delicious. Bottles of wine are half off on Wednesday. This...More
