The cook & the waitress were both very friendly. The food was absolutely delicious, it was cozy & quite & not noisy or loud at all which I appreciate, the portions were reasonably sufficient, & the pricing was not too bad for the area.

Wonderful meal backed up by exceptional service. Pasta and seafood dishes were excellent & the antipasto is a great way to start your meal.

Revisited this restaurant for dinner since we were in the area to see a movie. Small and charming dining room. Ordered a veal dish with salad. The salad dressing was hearty and fresh, resembling a soup. The veal was very tender and moist. After dinner, we each tried a cappucino which was deliciously hot, since the AC in there felt a bit excessive. Would still recommend this place for anyone who is looking for a quality and reputable dining experience.

I booked through Open Table for a group of ten (all work colleagues) for 5 pm this evening (Saturday, June 21, 2014). We were greeted by the owner who seated everyone as they arrived (none of that nonsense of waiting until the entire group is present before seating everyone). We ordered a variety of appetizers, meat, seafood, and pasta entrees along with some desserts. Most of our group also enjoyed wine with their dinner. Everyone was extremely pleased with their food. The service was cordial, prompt, and efficient - we were never rushed and spent a little over two hours at one one long rectangular table near the bar in the rear of the restaurant. I think you should plan on spending at least $50 to $60 per person if you want to enjoy a full course meal with a glass of wine (this would include tax and tip). I would strongly recommend this restaurant for group events as we were very well treated throughout our meal. All in all, it was a very pleasant evening and dining experience.

My family has been going to this restaurant for years. We had our second big party here in 3 years and it was just as good as the first. We had about 50 people in the main dining area. Harry, the owner, was wonderful to work with and helped us pick a terrific menu (he is very flexible) and set up table arrangements.
Our guests raved about the food. We had the appetizer with calamari, white pizza, zucchini, etc.; salad; entrees ranged from chicken, lamb, fish, veggie options; and desserts and coffee.
We brought in our own cake which they displayed and served for us, and we ran a tab for the drinks.
It all ran so smoothly, and I had such positive feedback that I wanted to share it with my tripadvisor friends. I would highly recommend it!
