Went there for my wife's birthday dinner was good as usual. Been there on multiple occasions very good Italian food, waiter was from my wife's area in Italy and was a pleasure speaking with him. Good authentic Italian food you won't be disappointed give it a try.

3 couples went on a Saturday 6:15. Place packed. First table tight and chair uneven. Our server, Carla, moved us quickly and graciously. Appetizers, main courses and dessert were excellent. Good valet service. Place busy and a little noisy but excellent

Popular place for the thin crust, but I was underwhelmed by the standard Italian fare and the tight spaces between tables. Went once and there are much better Italian places in the area for this price range (mid to high).

What a wonderful restaurant for the food. As others have stated- the grilled octopus app is one of the best I have had. The salmon was outstanding. The risotto excellent, the shrimp scampi huge shrimp perfectly prepared. While I felt the service was ok on a busy Saturday eve, be prepared as the restaurant is loud, the sound seems to... More

Went here with another couple. The food was delicious and very generous portions. My husband and I shared the grilled octopus appetizer. It was delicious! Our friends enjoyed a vegetable salad. Everyone raved about their entrees. I had the shrimp scampi, my husband had the pollo, one friend had the risotto, and the other the squid linguine. Everything was wonderful.... More

In Essex County, NJ, you can find a sea of Italian eateries but this one stands out as a winner in a race for being unique and delicious. During this trip, I sampled the burrata and Italian meat sampler tray,... More

They were totally booked but offered my husband and I a seat at the bar and it was PERFECT! The food was amazing, service was super and the vibe of the restaurant was rustic, warm and welcoming. The caponata that is... More

I've taken my wife here on a date several times, and it has never disappointed. The food, atmosphere and service are all excellent, just don't order bottled water, as we were charged seven dollars for it last time. I'll stick with the tap!
