Authentic Italian recipes broadly representing all regions of Italy's fabulous food tradition. The most welcoming restaurant anywhere, with a genuine and skilled kitchen. Have one of everything, including the cheesecake--the owner's recipe--and ask that they leave off the raspberry sauce to preserve this pure and unique Italian favorite. Add the almond based chocolate cake--the best I ever tasted. Get to... More

Oh. My. Lord. If you haven't been to Made in Italy, what are you waiting for? There isn't one bad thing on the menu, which boasts a minimum of 18 different phenomenal pizzas. The Tronchetti di brie with prosciutto, mushrooms and arugula appetizer is a must have when you visit. The lasagna bolognese is homemade comfort food at its best.... More

Six for dinner on a Friday night (7pm) - no waiting (except for outside tables). Our server was one of the best we've ever had. Didn't have to ask for anything. Right when you were ready for a drink refill, he was there ready with it. Food was excellent. Each in our group ordered a different dish and every one... More

Stopped in around 4 pm and not busy. Ordered caprese salad and the mozzarella was fresh and the tomatoes good. They use a vinegar from the olive oil shop next door and it is tasty. Wife had homemade bucatini that was perfect. I had the margarita pizza with fresh mozzarella and it was perfect as well. Just a little char... More

My friend and I began with homemade bucatini made with a slightly spicy sauce -- but it was fresh tomatoes, cartelized onions and red hot pepper. We followed and shared their seafood salad. It is always one of their best dishes and had a combination of shrimp, calamari, and muscles. Dressing and prepared quite well. It is one of the... More

We loved every bite of food. The server was wonderful, attentive, fun and she was funny. Unfortunately there were two screaming babes so everyone had to talk over them. I don't blame the restaurant for ill behaved children. I think the next time we go we will sit outside.

Brought my 85 yr old mom here for her birthday because she wanted pizza for dinner. We ordered the Diavolo and the Vegetale pizzas, the Insalata Florida and Tiramisu. The two pizzas came as one very large pizza. The Diavolo had REAL pepperoni sliced from a pepperoni stick and wonderfully spicy. The sauce was very good. The Vegetale for the... More
