This is not italian food, just pizza is not too bad. Wine is very cheap, also inside is very hot and dark. There are better places to eat in Burlington.

Small space you need reservations. Can do take out and all is yummy! Can order lasagna for a large group and carry out with garlic bread and salad.

Food is outstanding, particularly the seafood pasta dishes. Large portions at a reasonable price. Excellent service. Restaurant is small in size, reservations a must particularly on the weekends and some weeknights.

It's the real thing. Go Monday if you don't have a reservation or set it up in advance. Either way, be ready for a legit taste of Italy. We have visited many times and had something different and satisfying with each visit.

With great food and limited seating, this is not your typical drop -in restaurant, or even the type of restaurant you can call an hour before to make a reservation, as this place always is booked. However, it is worth preplanning and booking early to eat at... More
