Excellent food! The pastries are incredible, and the meals are authentic Italian. A large meatball is served here and it's worth the money! The best meatball, ever, with delicious sauce. The pasta is good and portions are huge. If you like eclairs, treat yourself!

Authentic Italian bakery with coffee, breakfast panini or have some of the famous stuffed meatballs. I often go just to pick up dessert and fresh filled cannoli for the family. Very family friendly. Great Italian wine selections reasonably priced.

We made an effort to visit here because of the DDD special and passed up a number of great restaurants in the Virginia Beach area. At first, I thought I was in the wrong place because it was pretty quiet for a Friday night. The wait staff seemed overwhelmed because they were trying to serve customers in the dining room... More

Dinner service was horrible. We waited over 40 minutes for a small salad and pasta dish. The waitress while new was very dodging when we tried to get her attention. Senior staff came over to explain there was only one person in the kitchen and asked if I wanted a box to take my food home since we had other... More

Meals are fairly good but portions could be bigger. If you want a real meal pleaser, try the chicken parmigiana. Lots to eat and pretty tasty

After watching the episode of DDD we had to make a stop here, Guy made the sandwich look sooooo delicious. We traveled from NC and boy were we disappointed. Restaurant was very nice looking, the dessert display was beautiful (I had a strong feeling that they were not going to be good...too pretty). So we sat down and placed our... More

The bakery displays are enticing as you enter and menu has many delicious sounding entrees. The ziti was very good. The steak onion provolone tomato sandwich on focaccia was tasty but really need mayo and spicy mustard to give it a flavor boost. The sandwich is massive The garlic fries were the winner on the plate. 2$ upcharge from the... More

Good food & bakery. Busy, slow service, mistake on bill. People left as tables were held over 1 hr. Appears they just need more help.

Meatballs are excellent. The crab bisque was very enjoyable. Salads were above average. Service was attentive.

My husband and I ate here recently. The entree choices were interesting to choose among. Everything we ordered was yummy. The service was lovely as well. The desserts are what set this place apart however. I'm from New York and I was transported back home with the choices. We ate some there and brought more home. Go!You will not be... More
