We’ve been coming here for 20 years and never disappointed. The pecan crusted chicken with layered sweet potatoes is my favorite. My wife usually orders a pasta dish that she equally enjoys. The starters are enough for four people and cold antipasto is complimentary. There...have been the same servers for years and are attentive while being subtle. If you’re hungry this is your place, the entrees are huge. There is always room for desert with a dedicated pastry chef.More

Another year to celebrate our Uncle's 97th Birthday. There were two other Birthday parties happening at the same time as ours celebration, it made it all the more special! For all the happy chatter going in, we were able to hear each other perfectly and...had a feeling of privacy although surrounded by at least 50 other people! After we placed our drink orders, the waitress brought out a complimentary appetizer of salami, prosuitto, olives, peppers and cheese. The bread basket was warm and delicious with bread sticks and toast along with bread. The sodas were fresh, bubbly, and in large glasses, (which you don't always get), we had a good time munching on all the goodies. The Caesar Salad and Calamari with two different dipping sauces went fast. Entrees were Pork chops, Chicken a La Casa, Poached Salmon and Potato encrusted sole. Each one of us loved their own dish, something that doesn't always happen. Desserts were a step above, Maxine is their Pastry Chef and the Raspberry Crumble and the Tiramisu were excellent, the Ice Box Cake not so great, and very sweet. I didn't order any dessert, being a non-dairy person, but the waitress out a platter of delicious fresh fruit and complimentary Biscotti. Coffee was very good, with us getting refills, the espresso was a disappointment and was sent back with no fuss or hassle. Our waitress was so good and seems like she was a part of our good experience. Expect to pay a little more than average but so worth it.More

So very disappointed to enter the restaurant, only to be greeted by a “MAGA”/Trump display. If we weren’t with another couple, we would have turned around and left. In this political climate, the owners should realize many find this highly offensive. That said, the server...was pleasant and attentive, and the food good. It’s unfortunate that we no longer feel comfortable in this establishment, as we have been going there for years.More

Come here for the food; not necessarily the ambiance. We enjoyed the complimentary antipasto platter while waiting for our food. While it took a bit longer than expected, it was worth the wait. Fantastic food and I have to concur with some of the previous...reviews--get the stuffed pork chop. Absolutely delicious. Some nice, reasonably priced wines as well. Excellent service by John.More

Bizarrely decorated from the 1990s, this place will win no awards for being fashionable or innovative in...anything. But the food was very decent...basic old school Italian restaurant fare. No surprises. Waitstaff friendly...seemed a lot of customers are like old friends which makes for a welcoming...experience. Full bar.More

Great stuffed pork chop and appetizers! Service is always top shelf. Been coming here for 20 years! You can easily park and have a drink at the bar while you wait for friends/family. For some reason I always get the stuffed pork. Probably due to...the fact that it is the best I have ever had. Not cheap but well worth it!More

My family has been coming to this restaurant for at least 20 years. The food and flavors are incredible, and the dining room is cute and cozy. We love the servers, they are always kind and patient. The chef always comes out to our table...to greet us and asks how our meal was. The Best dish is the stuffed pork chop valvistano that just oozes with BIG flavor.More
