I enjoy going to this restaurant for their food and atmosphere.
It is like a neighborhood Italian joint with the premium quality dishes.
You should try Calamari.

I went here for a work dinner and it was some if the best Italian I have ever had...what a gem!! The sausage and peppers, chicken parm were the best but in reality, everything was amazing. The portions are huge so be prepared to bring some home or try family style with a large group.

A very small old neighborhood style restaurant tha serves excellent seafood, pasta, veal, dishes. I have tried almost everything on the menue and have not been disappointed. Great food, waiters and staff are right on the job.. The boss/chef owner is all over making sure everyone is pleased with what they ordered..recommend this place to anyone who wants old world cooking...

Just like my Italian Grandmothers cooking and I got a little misty eyed eating the pasta and sausage. Others had veal Marsala and gnocchi. The food was great. The atmosphere greater and the service is the best. Loved the tight quarters, which adds to the ambience.
And the cannoli...madonna mia!
