We needed to avoid MKE's rush hour and decided to bail in Port Washington for a meal. TripAdvisor guided us here and wow, we couldn't have had a nicer meal. We asked our server, Sara, for her personal favorite and she recommended the Fettuccini Alfredo with chicken and mushrooms, do we tried that--wowee, what an excellent meal! Can't wait to... More

It's good every now and again. They serve dishes you'd expect and pizza. The menu has some updates. The Burrata caprese was very good.

Service was very good, food was very good. The Spedeini was excellent, my date had the Shrimp Genovese special, both were great. Appetizer(Calamari) was also good. Dessert had the Spumoni bomb, and Tiramisu which were great. Spent a good deal of time there in conversation and were never rushed. Will be back again, thanks for making first date more special.

You will NOT leave here hungry. Really innovative meals like the veggie raviolis that we incredibly tasty. Service is excellent, and the portion sizes are generous as well. We loved the ravioli, the meatballs and the garlic bread which is subtle and extremely flavorful because it's not over done with garlic salt.

Get there early or make sure you have a reservation. My friend and I arrived on a Sunday evening about 5:30 and by 7 it was packed and I now know why. The sauce is the real McCoy. We started with the antipasto salad that had just the right amount of dressing. I then ordered the lasagna, VERY good! It... More

My wife and I were headed back to the Milwaukee area after a vacation in the Wisconsin Northwoods, and wanted to stop for one more good meal before we got home. We found this gem thanks to Trip Advisor and were able to call ahead and get a table for two. The location on Port Washington's Main Street is charming.... More

Thanks so much for your glowing review, gmargrett! We're glad you joined us for dinner (thanks TripAdvisor reviewers for sending them!) and especially thrilled that you enjoyed your meals so much. Thanks, too, for mentioning our multi-level dining -- most new customers don't realize that we offer seating on the second floor and this will help to spread the word!... More

This was not our first choice of places to eat but as there were long waits elsewhere we decided to give this a try. We were glad we did! Very good service and outstanding pasta - and all at reasonable prices - and oh, the servings are humungus! Recommended if you need to up the carb levels!

Based on the name you would expect perfect pasta and that's what you get. We had a short wait at the bar with a friendly helpful bartender. When seated the friendly waitress answered our every question. The food was served hot and included great garlic bread. Also include the Antipasta salad. The one for two fed four with left overs.

We were hungry for pasta and decided to give this a try. Nice interior with dining upstairs and down. Great menu with pastas and pizza. We ordered the bruschetta and enjoyed it very much. For dinner we ordered the spaghetti and it was very excellent too. Would definitely return.
