The fish specials and pasta dishes are delicious. I recommend the swordfish, you must be very careful not to eat the what they call Hawaiian Butterfish also known as escolar, trust me or google it yourself, it is banned in Japan due to side effects. The atmosphere is at first charming until you are seated almost shoulder to shoulder with... More

Went to lunch with two girlfriends to celebrate a birthday. We thoroughly enjoyed the meal. We took our time and didn't feel rushed. The service was excellent. The shrimp over linguine was delicious. My friends enjoyed the eggplant dish. Would highly recommend. I think I will also try it for dinner very soon.

This is the story that people dread... Out on date night to a place you hear decent things about. You go in for lunch mid-week and they seat you at a dirty table. It wouldn't be that big of a deal except there was NOBODY else in the restaurant. You undo your napkin and there is dirty silverware. Your significant... More

One of my favorite Italian restaurants in Newtown. You have to make reservations because anyone who tries it once will be going back. I almost hate to tell you how good it is because I am afraid you will take my seat!! The space is small and the tables are tight but the food is wonderful. The menu includes pasta,... More

Simply great food, good service and not over-priced (don't understand why anyone would make that comment). I really like the intimacy of this place and it's great location right downtown. We don't get in here often enough, but always enjoy visiting here.

that reflects how quaint Newtown is. The Italian food is very good and the staff is very friendly. Prices are comparable to areas restaurants, but being able to bring your own wine makes this restaurant a good buy.

I've dined here many times for lunch and dinner. Consistently good to very-good experience each time. Offers Italian dining with a slight flair. Great garlic bread (on the best-ever list). The seafood-and-pasta dishes (great clams and pasta) are good choices. Very pleasant staff and a nice overall atmosphere. Can get a bit loud if a large group is in the... More

Enjoyable restaurant with pleasant service and slightly above average food. Food is a bit overpriced for the quality that you get. Worth a visit once. Service is very good.

Way overpriced and food was so-so. So many other restaurants in the area that are better so don't waste your time and money here.

One of the 2 great Italian Restaurants on State Street. Good friendly service and authentic Italian food. A little small and crowded, but still very nice. Plus it's a BYOB.
