Worst experience EVER. First on the way in we saw a dead cockroach on the floor and I nearly walked out. The service was bad but even worse was when I said my chicken was still uncooked, they brought the chef out of the kitchen, who I think was the owner and this older Italian guy started to debate my...

My bridal shower was thrown here and loved it. I am gluten free and they were careful to serve me GF items and had GF pasta (could have been cooked slightly more as it was way too al'dente). Service was good and very clean. Would recommend.

Ive never had the Italian kisses before (they are ricotta and spinach dumplings in tomato sauce) and they are amazing! I could eat like 20... More

We had intended to eat at Vesta but couldn't get a table for 10/15 minutes so we walked across the street to Al Di La. What a mistake. The restaurant was not at all crowded but it took nearly an hour to get our entrees (we ordered penne Al la vodka and eggplant parmigiana, not exactly complicated dinners). The food... More

We've been here on several occasions and the menu is always adding new entrees, But just ask for an old favorite not on the menu. The staff is very attentive and friendly. And Donna is a joy to entertaining.

The food was fantastic. I was there fairly early on a weeknight so the place was pretty much empty but it felt like cheers, where "everybody knows your name". The whole place was having one big conversation. Staff was amazing, as was the food. Be careful not to eat too much bread, it was insanely good.

We're from California, so this is different from the Italian restaurants near our house. It was great. I had a soft shell crab dinner - my husband had the Sunday "gravy' - it had meatballs, sausage pork - he loved it. We have our son with autism - they accommodated us by making a plain spaghetti and meatballs not on... More

My coworker and I went for Friday night for dinner. It was awesome! Food was great and it was karaoke night which was sooooo entertaining!!! The only reason o didn't give it 5 stars was cause our waitress was HORRIBLE. Other than that, it was great!

We were looking for an authentic Italian American old school Resturant and this fulfilled all our wishes.. The clam apetizers were juicey and tasty . My Sunday Gravey over pasta had a generous portion of beef rib, sausage and meatball. They had a nice special on a bottle of Chianti that went well with our meal. Our servers were friendly... More

We recently had our daughter's bridal shower at this lovely restaurant. The banquet manager, Donna, was more than helpful to us – it was like we became friends:) She made excellent suggestions about the food and decor, and had everything set up beautifully. The food was excellent, & there was plenty of it ,so my daughter came home with leftovers.... More
