Finally found crave worthy Italian Food in the area! This is the best we have had since pre-covid trips to NY! Owners are lovely, they use generational family recipes and it shows. Highly recommend the penne vodka and shrimp oreganata. Ambiance is traditional Italian, tablecloth...dining - not a pizzeria. Have gone twice and will be back next week with a craving I’m sure.More

I'm not usually one to write reviews but, I felt the need to write one now. I had the best appetizer that I have ever eaten in my life! It was a stuffed eggplant with crab and shrimp risotto in the most incredible pink sause....Our meals were equally as delicious. Don't pass this gem on Highway 34.More

The service is fine. The food in comparison to the area is average at best. My dishes had a weird aftertaste. My Veal Parm was soggy. Not good. My mussels just ok. It’s popular and has many fans so maybe it’s just me but I...don’t think so. Average entree is $25More

After several times passing this restaurant we decided to give it a try. So glad we did and this past 2 weeks we have been there two times. The service is excellent as well as the food. The shrimps were very fresh, their sauce is...great and probably one of the best fried calamari we ever had. Give it a try you will not be disappointed.More

My family (party of 11) came here for Mother's Day lunch. I didn't know what to expect, and I think a lot of people would pass right by here on Route 34 without even noticing the place. My advice to you: don't do that. Head...on in for some fantastic Italian. From the second we walked in, everyone was extremely welcoming and friendly. Our server Gina was probably one of the best I've ever had. I started with the Fried Calamari - large, tender breaded rings that hit the spot. It was well seasoned, not over-fried, and didn't have too much breading. For my main, I got the Chicken Abruzzi, which combined some of my favorite foods all into one dish. Chicken breast topped with eggplant, prosciutto, and mozzarella served in a brown sherry wine sauce with wild mushrooms. All flavors came together to make a fantastic entree. All of the pieces of the dish were cooked perfectly, and it really hit the spot. Large portions all around as well. While I didn't try other entrees, I don't think there was one person that didn't enjoy their meal, and that was a party of 11 as I said. We topped it off with some of their fantastic desserts and left feeling full and happy. Overall, this place is truly fantastic. BYOB is certainly an added bonus. My verdict: highly recommend - no matter what you order, you'll have a great meal. It's tough for me to give a full 5 stars, but they deserve it.More

My husband and I tried out this restaurant and were pleasantly surprised. Generous portions and excellent service for reasonable prices. We both split a stuffed mushroom with sausage appetizer. My husband had the mussels and linguini while I had the Veal Florencia without the peppers....My husband mentioned that one of the mussels had sand but all the others were ok. Both entrees come with a salad but my salad had the ends of the lettuce which was not too appetizing. The meal itself was very good and enjoyable. By the time the dessert tray was brought out, I was so full from the meal that I could not partake but they did look very appealing. Would definitely return and recommend this restaurant.More

Enjoyed a very good dinner starting with fried calamari that was done very nicely. Salmon was excellent as was the chicken dishes. Relaxed atmosphere and BYOB were an additional plus!! Friendly service. A great week night treat!
