Things didn't start well with np-one coming to our table for 10 mins. One waitress was doing all the work, the Hispanic one was flat out lazy and just ignored us. The owner thinks that speaking Italian and acting the fool makes up for poor and slow service is sadly mistaken. The food was ok, not terrible, but not good. My wife's raviolis were frozen and tasted like chef boyardee.the meat sauce was good, so it helped. My carbonara was so so, bacon was too sweet and not cooked enough to caramelize it, so it didn't put any flavor into the dish. Overall it lacked flavor. Our waitress, an older lady, was great and friendly, but not enough to make up for the bad start. The pizza seemed to be popular, so maybe try that!

Service in this restaurant is atrocious. We were seated at a table in the middle of the walkway for the waitress (and I mean one waitress). We moved to a different table when one became available. We waited 30 minutes for a drink and not once did anyone come to wait on us. But, not just us. There were 3 tables around us who were seated before us and didn't get served either. We left after the 30 minutes and 4 tables followed us out. Terrible. We won't return. There is a fabulous Italian restaurant just down the street with lots of staff, great food and a friendly atmosphere. (Cristianos).

Seriously good Italian food is served at this small, quirky, very fun and relaxed restaurant. The owner and servers make everyone feel like friends. House Merlot was excellent. Spicy olive appetizer (recommended by server) was wonderful as was the antipasto plate of Italian meats and cold marinated eggplant. Entrees of ravioli alla ragu and chicken parmaggiano were delicious. Lots of off-menu daily specials are offered. We were too full to try any of the desserts or coffee. Would definitely head back here when in the mood for Italian food.

Not only is the food delicious here for but the service is amazing. You feel right at home. Plan to stay a little longer than expected or ask for your check at the beginning of the meal because they are so friendly they talk to everyone. Excellent wine and food. I got the spaghetti with bacon and it was amazing. My husband got a pizza that was also delicious. Definitely worth checking out! Its a local gem!
