We visited for dinner with friends for the first time and will visit again soon. The service by Kevin was exceptionally attentive, the food was excellent and the ambiance was special. Our party of four especially enjoyed both clam appetizers, the linguini with white clam sauce ant the veal Francese. We were surprised to learn there is a full bar,... More

I have to rate this as average no matter how much I wanted to love this place. The wait staff were all amazing and the ambience was fine, but the food was marginal. What made it marginal?? WAY to much salt in everything but the appetizer and dessert. This is a huge thing for me because I typically add extra... More

We throughly enjoyed this restaurant. The food and service were excellent. Our waiter Ryan was very knowledgeable about the menu. The portions are large enough to share. I had a shrimp and avocado appetizer, which was delicious. The shrimp Fradiavolo had the perfect amount of heat. I highly recommend this restaurant and know you won't be disappointed!

Amazing food, you never feel rushed and Geoffrey,server, is wonderful. Carlo, the owner, is great and you feel like family. The specials are always fantastic, but the menu has all great options. The fish is always good...oregano is the best. Reservations are a must. Enjoy!!!

FANTASTIC!! We ate there for lunch, and it was a feast. Great Italian fare served by a staff with flair and personality. Best part - not a budget buster. We'll be back.

The food is wonderful but costly. However you do feel you get your moneys worth because it taste good. This restaurant is great for a romantic dinner. You can go for lunch which is more reasonable.
