We were seated within 5 minutes and told of the specials within 10 minutes. We had Calamari and Clams Oreganato for appys. Both were delicious! Two of us had the Braised Short Ribs special and they... More

My family and I came here on a Thursday night. There was 6 of us (5 adults, 1 child) and my cousin had made a reservation. Apparently, they prefer reservations. There were many pros and cons to this place. Cons: * There was only one other party when we arrived and we were squished into a corner (there was plenty... More

You can't go wrong by visiting this little hidden gem of a restaurant! Always have a great meal and never leave disappointed or hungry. Service is just as good. Do make a reservation as this place does fill up even in the off season.

The food is very good here. It is much better than many of the restaurants in this area and it is inventive with some of their dishes. We had mushrooms stuffed with arugula, sausage, cheese, etc., in a sherry wine sauce - Yum. If you're going on a weekend, you really do need reservations. The restaurant is small, so they... More

The food was very good, everything was nice and fresh - - highly recommend the stuffed mushroom appetizer. The service was fantastic, very attentive and friendly. The atmosphere, I'm sorry to say, was a little loud because it's a very small place. Sadly we were seated next to the world's loudest man...his own family tried to hush him several times.... More

Our server (Sam) and one of the Tardi brothers were very attentive and great at what they do. The bruschetta was very good. So was the bread and salad. We had the rigatoni with shrimp and crab in vodka sauce. This was excellent. It was a large portion with lots of crab meat a quite a few very large shrimp.... More
