I had the chicken piccata twice. It was delicious. The family atmosphere was great. The waitresses were attentive, the prices very reasonable.

If you are looking for fantastic Italian food this is the place. It's small, but the flavors are large...They have been in business for many years and it is a go to place for great food by locals and folks from surrounding cities...Highly reccomend.

Always enjoy going to eat at this restaurant or getting take out. My favorite is the shrimp scampi over fusilli. You will definitely be going home with leftovers. The desserts are delicious! Have been going here for years. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable about what's on the menu.

Generous portions - great food. Did take out and everything was great. We are Italian and very seldom buy Italian out (we make our own) but when we do this is the place to go. Delicious. Help could not be better. Parking not great but ok.

Living in NH, I haven't been since 2007. Today my mother, sister, & I went to visit my grandparents gravesite and thought we would grab... More

Delicious food every single time! And the prices are great! We had tried many of the items on the menu and have never been disappointed. They close on Sundays, so be aware of that.

Paul greeted us friendly and promptly at the door letting us know he was setting a booth up for us at lunch. Two other customers sat in our booth from another table and Paul told them the booth was for us. They were upset and left the restaurant.
