Did I mention they have excellent Chianti ? On a Friday or Saturday night, call for reservations. The staff is friendly and attentive. You will leave happy and full ! Mangia... More

The appetizers were fresh, the salad was crisp, and the meals were excellent. This is the type of place you can come to every time your... More

If you like old line Italian, this is your spot. Found all the food great. Everyone in our party enjoyed every dish that had. Would have giver it 5 stars if our server was a little better. If your in Long Branch and you like Italian, you like this place.

This is an authentic throwback Italian neighborhood establishment! The service is excellent and the staff is friendly and fun! Love the country style parmigiana, made with moist pounded out thighs with homemade pappardelle pasta. The Bolognese with pappardelle is outstanding too.,but they put too much sauce so I ask to put less sauce.. The portions are very generous! And the... More

stepping across the threshold is like walking into an old friend's house. whether at the bar or a table, it is genuine Italian. no fakery. that goes for the food, too. large portions of southern Italian food, not bad house wine. try veal francese or any other veal, huge linguine w/ white clam sauce, etc., etc..

Love the specials they have during the week before 6PM. Half price pasta or pizza is a great buy as is the dinner special and drink specials. The food is tasty and plentiful. The staff is friendly and they take reservations.
