The food was amazing! I highly recommend the risotto ball appetizer and the lasagna. We happened to go on Monday which is half price wine and lobster ravioli night. Everything was so delicious.

Fun nostalgic restaurant with very good Italian food and wine. Fun atmosphere with hundreds of nostalgic photos of old time movie stars. Food and service were excellent with very reasonable prices. A must do if you are in the mood for Italian.

We read the reviews on Vinnies and wanted to check it out. The food was absolutely DELICIOUS and the atmosphere was great. Our waitress was very personable. It turned out that she had been a fellow New Englander, who had relocated a few months earlier....More

I’m sure they can, with advanced planning. Ask to reserve the back room for the event. Ask for Eric or the manager, Liat. Terrific people.
