Went last night. Our first time there. The other 2 couples had been there before. Barely sat down and they wanted to take our order, hardly giving us time to get our coats off. Asked to give us a few minutes to look over the menu. Ordered our meals. Salads brought out very quickly. Hardly had time to eat them... More

We could have slowed your service down if you had asked. Would have been quicker than writing this review to make us look bad. More

Have driven past this nondescript building dozens of times without even glancing, until searching for it after hearing how good the food is and reading reviews. Reviews correct about the salad. Enjoyed it. Ordered the medium size mostaccioli in meat and cream sauce. Delicious. The medium provided enough for lunch the next day. Also tried the stuffed orange roughy. Also... More

A group of 12 of us had a reservation for 6:00. Two of us arrived around 5:40, we were immediately seated at our assigned table. We had waters and warm bread w/ butter in front of us within minutes. Everyone comes from different parts of the metro area, so we trickled in and our last two folks did not arrive... More

Went for anniversary, always a good spot for special occasions. It is not cheap, but the food is excellent. We had the steak tony and the chicken tony and salads. Both meals were outstanding. Our server was new but did a great job. Have been here several times and will come back.

Have been following Tony Mazzolla around since he started restaurant in Belleville. Salad is outstanding; wine selection somewhat limited, but fairly priced; entrees are incredible.

The food and service were fantastic. So glad we found this place. The food was as good as what you would expect across the river on the hill.

Good Italian Food, great for families, good service, take reservations,. Only regret was ordering the Sea Scallops Dinner. I was surprised that all I had on my plate was five scallops. They were not even medium sized. Mentioned this to my waiter, Jarrelln but nothing changed. Won't worder them again.....$27.95 was too much for five scallops.

The reviews were on point, but we were still surprised with how great this restaurant was. Our family had dinner with my parents, so they can accommodate larger parties. Server was great. Took care of us but didn't hover. The food. Amazing. Brushetta was really good. Entrees were fantastic. We ordered the Chicken Mudiga and a side of brussel sprouts...husband... More
