Took my family 10 of us - to this small restaurant. It was like eating at home only the best food you could imagine. The staff treated us like royalty. I could not have asked for a better place to have family reunion. Top notch.

Excellent food, large portions. Short wait for delivery. I ordered the Veal Parm. Real Veal, the sauce was very good a lots of cheese.. My spouse had the meatball (very large) and spaghetti which was also delicious.

What used to be the typical local S. Italian place ... but is slowly disappearing. Waitstaff is helpful. Desserts were clearly not fresh despite menu claiming "home made". Portions sizes were generous and the marinara was tasty. Eggplant was super tender and prepared correctly. Pasta...More
