The food was delicious -- lots of great choices. I was pleasantly surprised at the portion size, the price and the service. My local pizza joint charges just as much for its pasta but lacks the ambiance and service. The service was outstanding -- the multiple waiters were attentive and we never felt rushed. I would absolutely eat there again... More

Had a good meal and reasonably priced. Portions are generous. Owners are from Sicily and provide a good selection of seafood dishes. Staff is courteous and knowledgeable.

This IS an Italian restaurant! The young people working there spoke Italian to each other! We started with the calamari in a very light batter. I had POLLO VERONA, Yum & very filling! DH had a four cheese ravioli! It's worth the short drive into town to eat here. And you get to see the town square to boot! The... More

If you want to try some fresh Italian food this restaurant is for you. Located on the square in Wilkes Barre it's great for venues at the Kirby. Great salads, soups & many choices for entrees, all at reasonable prices. A must if you are in WB area.

Visited on a recent Monday night and the service was extremely slow, waiting 20 minutes just to get a glass of wine. Minestrone soup was mostly peas with a few carrots and potatoes. Very disappointing considering this is an Italian restaurant. Meals were ok, prices are reasonable.

Food and service was of the highest quality. I literally lingered to savor every morsel, every drop, every portion of my soup, entree and dessert. I could eat here everyday!
