the evening we went it was very busy and the staff thought it was a little unusual, they supply you with paper tablecloths and crayons your waitress will write her name on it, we wrote our drinks on it so she knew what to bring us we when we needed a refill, food is your typical Italian fayre with other specials etc

We had a bad experience a couple of years ago and decided to give it another chance last night. We placed a very specific carry out because I am gluten free/ Vegan. The first pizza we got was pepperoni not veggies..first mistake. We complained, they made it again, opened it up right there and it gf veggie covered in cheese. We were just appalled by the situation so we were going to leave, but the lady that took the order really wanted to make it right. They remade it AGAIN and we got the rest of our order which we did not have to pay for. All seemed well until after I ate the pizza and suffered the remainder of the night. The crust was either not gf or they cross contaminanted. Will never ever go back!

Wife wanted Italian for her birthday, and this restaurant was recommended by our hotel. We arrived to an open table at 5:30, and were greeted quickly by Adam. We ordered caesar salad and crab bisque for appetizers. Salad was okay, but bisque was too sweet and creamy rich for our taste. The entrees were delivered on time, consisting of lasagna and veal marsala. Both were not very good. The lasagna had too much cheese, too much ricotta. The veal was okay, but the marsala sauce was sweet enough to put on ice cream! Now lets get to the service. Adam quickly took our order, but that was the last we saw of him! Someone else delivered the food, As we waited for a refill of our water (which never happened), the manager appeared at our table to ask how the dinner was. We said, "okay, but what happened to Adam? He just disappeared!" The manager said "I think he's on Mars!" Wow. When is the last time you heard that from a restaurant manager? The manager kindly retrieved our bill, and gave us a big discount on our appetizers. Needless to say, we won't be coming back, although the line was out the door as we made our way out. Maybe we should have ordered the pizza.

Standard Italian place. Pizza is okay, better then most offerings on the island. Chicken parm is good but not great. Service was nice. Price is pretty much in line with other places on the island.

Our meals were just fine. This is not fine dining but it passes for a decent meal without going over the bridge.
