One of my favorite little restaurants and has been for many years. It's got a cozy atmosphere and good food. Wine carafes are a great value. I usually get the eggplant parmigiana and Ceaser salad. Also, in season the Tomato Mozzarella Caprese salad. A generous serving size and always yummy.

We celebrated our company party with Jason and his staff. What a way to kick off the year. We were a group of 14 and I think we are still eating leftovers. Food and Wine was excellent. A great value. I have never been disappointed! Do yourself a favor and give it a try.

We had been to this spot several years ago and were not impressed, however, we were in a mood for italian and decided to give it one more try. The interior was as drabby as the last time, and there was no host at the front to greet us even though the place was packed on a Friday night. The... More

If one were to cast a neighborhood Italian restaurant this would be the place. Massive portions, low cost, friendly waiters, little ambiance and ok food. For those reasons it will not be a destination restaurant for us but for those same reasons the place was packed. The waiter warned us not to order an appetizer as the main course includes... More

Some of the best Italian food we have had in years, service was excellent and the antipasto was the best we have had in 30 years

We always seem to forget this gem in Herndon. The food is always good and the service is too. Also priced reasonably.

Owner-Chef is always there. Varied menu from braised lamb shanks to fish and any pasta dish. Excellent wine choices.

I've been wanting to try this restaurant to see if they serve good Italian food. Finally, I got invited by a friend to come here who came here a month ago and had something he didn't enjoy much, so he wanted to come back and prove that they have something good since the reviews in both Yelp and TripAdvisor say...

Great lasagna, but otherwise eh. Portions were truly large, but the gnocchi was very bland, and the fish was ok. The service was odd, brusque and forgetful (i.e. wanted 3 salads for the table, one of them Caesar, and 20 minutes later 4 tossed house salads came out.) Lots of cross-conversation with other wait staff, and, weirdly, took forever to... More
