This restaurant is definitely in decline. I remember eating there years ago and it was very good but now forget it. The place is really rundown and the waiter we had was a "space cadet". I ordered ravioli and got lasagna ! The marinara must have been made days ago and the pasta was well overcooked. It was just ok and we were very sorry we just didn't get up and leave ... I would never recommend it nor return, go somewhere else.

If you like delicious tomato sauce and tender veal at a fair price in an old (not fancy)Italian restaurant setting...you will like this place!

We arrived before six and were offered the early bird dinners as well as the full menu. Early birds were between $13-20. I ordered the Veal Parmasan from the early bird menu, $15.99 .. came with pasta and salad. My husband ordered Shrimp and Clam Linguine from the full menu, $18.99 . The salads were served on ice cold silver plates and were delicious. Along came a full loaf of baked garlic bread, which was PERFECT! A glass of wine (which was only $4.95 during early birds) was tasty. Hubby's meal was good. Not much seafood, but lots of garlic. My veal was not very good at all. The breading was so thick and something in the sauce made it almost bitter. I took most of it home, hoping it will taste better in a sandwich.
The restaurant was a white-linen table cloth, fine dining restaurant. And it was lovely. Music was soft and quite nice. Waiter was wonderful, attentive and right there for anything we needed. I would go back, but would not get the red sauce again. For the price and atmosphere, you can probably not do any better.

We are 40 plus year patrons...what is going on with the music? We have mentioned this to Gina several times. What you would expect in a white table-clothed fine-dining Italian resaurant is Andre Bocelli or other fine italian music - even instramentals. Instead you are distracted from your fine meal by wierd jazz that does not mix with the fine Italian restaurant ambiance - surely we are not the only patrons who feel that Italian music would be appropriate - or anything more soothing than what we have to listen to. Also, we always have to ask for a nice wine glass - otherwise we order the best wine on the menu and we are served with "not great" wine glasses. These things make a real differece. Hope someone is listening - Tommy?
