Unassuming looking place at the end of a county road, with great food. Went on a weekday night, and the place was fairly busy. Appetizers are excellent - listen for specials, it's worth it. We had a flatbread with fresh mozzarella and tomatoes, seasoned perfectly. Good range of choices beyond the standard Italian fare and the pork shank osso buco was the best I've had. (again, the specials are the way to go).
Room management is unfortunately chaotic, so lots of folks waiting for reservations well past their time, etc. Wait staff works hard to overcome the disorganization. Wine choices were boring, but okay.

Always a delight. If you like real Italian food this is the place. Everything fresh and made as you order it. Not on the menu , request it and Umberto will make it for you if he has the ingredients. Osso Bucca is hard to describe.. You have to try it , ask for the Penne Grillati, Umberto will make it for you, the flavor explodes in your mouth. Great service, decor is best of any place and spotless.. Recommend you call ahead for reservations.

Very small/intimate setting. We arrived without reservations and had to wait about 15 mintues - until we were seated (no problem). We noticed the hostess and servers acknowledged their diners with a smile and a hello, as they were long time patrons. Food and service was very good. You may wait a bit for the food to be delivered to your table - because they are making it for you (again, no problem). If you are considering this establishment - I would suggest you try it.
They do offer wine, no mixed drinks and they don't accept AmEx.

We are locals to the area. Had heard from someone the food was good. We are Italian so we set the bar a bit high when a restaurant claims to have authentic food. Upon arrival, the hostess said she would be right with us and proceeded to turn around and stand at the bar and chat with a couple for about ten minutes. I was ready to leave by then, but the hubby was hungry. Waitstaff were constantly walking by smiling and apologizing as if this happens more than not. Hubby finally asked her what the wait was and she rudely said that we could put our name on a list (only ones waiting) and sharply stated that we were told already that we were going to have quite a wait. Never told that initially, and pointed it out, and she argued the point repeatedly. Lousy customer skills. Now more than ready to walk out, hubby's appetite won. After being seated waitress was fantastic. A+ service. Marsala was beyond bland for my meal. Tasted almost as robust as turkey gravy. Hubby's meal a seafood mix was comparable to a frozen seafood mix bag over basic sauce. Returning? No. Even if the food was great I don't honestly think I would want my money to go in that hostess/owners pocket. There are quite a few great local spots that I would rather support.
