A great dining experience in a clean well service restaurant. Portions were large and reasonably priced.

We have been to this restaurant many times and the food is always great. They can handle large parties easily and the service is good. What I enjoy the most is the menu variety that offers both the classic Italian pasta dishes and more creative traditional Italian dishes (veal and chicken).

This local Italian restaurant boats a friendly atmosphere and staff and very good food. The wine selections are limited but adequate. Deserts are good. We had lasagne and pizza.

Many of the "in" restaurants were mentioned of course but then I found this one, in Chester no less!! We live close to the Fan area so thinking of going all of the way to Chester would never had entered... More

Dinner was good, but our experience was less than satisfactory when we sent back a beer that one of us didn't like and we were charged for it. We were never offered a tasting beforehand. Not good customer service. It was only five dollars. Not a big deal, but it just shows that customer service is not a priority. With... More

Dinner, March 29th, 2016 Our first visit to this restaurant. Four of us--two couples--had various dishes. I opted for my "go-to" dish: lasagna. I was not disappointed! Better than most I have had at other local Italian eateries. The wait staff was short-handed on this night, but hustle and friendliness more than made up for any inconvenience. Will definitely make... More

My and my significant other had dinner here last night and we didn't have a great experience. We ordered wine, and then I ordered the Twisted Chicken and he got the tuna. Each meal came with a salad, a side and a bread basket. Our drinks and food came out very quickly, but once they were dropped off, we were... More

we asked the front desk, would never have found it, but glad we did. Its on the upscale side,very classy inside, average dinners 28.00 there were 2 couples, we each ordered differently..from Lasagna, Mannicotti to Eggplant and Chicken parm. I felt the food was on the salty side, (I don't use salt when cooking) everyone seemed to enjoy their food,... More

We stopped in Christmas Eve after calling them and finding out they were open for dinner until 8ish. Very nice, clean and roomy restaurant. My wife had the linguine alfredo which she said was delicious. I had the chicken parmigiana which was very good but I'm accustomed to having it served on a layer of pasta. I also had an... More
