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.

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

Excellent food and excellent service!!! I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves good food. Not only do you get high-quality food you also get a lot of it. Very satisfying.

I was excited to go hear, because I heard it was a good place, however I most definitely got sick from the food there. I'll admit it tasted good, but for some reason it caused me to get ill after eating. I would love to go back just hesitant.

Great food & service. Good spot to sit up to the bar or date night in the dining room. Hotel staff recommended this place to me, they said they always get good feedback from their guests that go here. Wonderful Italian, I had the penne vodka sauce with grilled shrimp. Excellent.
