We had a great italian seafood meal. The salad was a good size. We had a great time and enjoyed unwinding from a crazy week at work . Thanks for the wonderful rxperience.

Food is amazing. The sauce is a must and the half portion is sufficient if you don't or want to be hauling off leftovers. I had the chicken parmigiana and pasta. Prices was really good for what you get.

We eat here every time we visit friends in Rochester. I always get the eggplant parm (half order) which still comes with side of pasta; my husband always gets the veal parm with pasta. The wedding soup is very good. Friends got lasagna and loved...More

Very full meals. Gnocchi was average, tripe is a favorite of the family. Italian wedding soup seemed to lack something - not sure what. Service about average water glasses stayed empty.
