Stopped here while in Johnson City and loved it! I had the Fettuccini Trivestina and it was very good. Our service was great and the portions were large. The owner was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely return.

Today was my second visit. First was dinner with a large group. This time it was a solo lunch. The quality of the food would easily stand up anywhere outside NYC's Little Italy. The gravy (red tomato sauce for you uninitiated) is great. I ordered...More
