“Almost perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014

OK, so we looked up the top places in OC and found this place listed near the top and just had to try it. We were greeted by a mature, knowledgeable, and pleasant server and seated immediately. She took our drink order and told us the daily specials and within a few minutes was back with our drinks and some bread and oil. In only a few minutes more she was back asking if we had any questions about the menu or needed any additional help with selections. She wasn’t being pushy, just helpful, and after a question or two we had made our selections. I had the ‘bean soup’ with a Cesar salad and one of the special main courses. The soup was great, fresh made and very tasty and the Cesar was also very tasty without being overpowering. The main course of shells with sausage and marinara was perfectly prepared. She who must be obeyed had Cesar and Veil which was also very well prepared. The only shortfall of the entire evening was the bread. It just didn’t live up to the rest of the meal. The only way to describe it is that it would have been the guy laying on the beach getting sand kicked in his face, not the muscle guy doing the kicking. The crust had not chew to it, wimpy at best.

“Wonderful! Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

Awesome food. Fresh, made to order. Perfect service. Charming Owner/Manager. Relaxing. Did I say delicious? Can get crowded at dinner time in season...just a treat in the offseason, no crowds and you can just enjoy yourself. Prices are very good. Portions are generous. Stop eating at those beach buffets places and have some real food for dinner

“Great food, great staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

My wife and I got the urge to eat at an Italian restaurant while we were in Ocean City and we discovered this place after some research. As soon as we walked in the door, the friendly atmosphere told us we were going to have a great time. The wait staff was phenomenal and the food was outstanding. My wife and I are vegetarians and they had a few options for us to select from that were really good.

“As good as your gonna get!! Mangia!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2014

Came here Sunday of Mem day weekend, they were packed @ 8:00 but quickly squeezed us into a smaller table, but we didn't mind at all! Our waitress was running like crazy but took very good care of us. Everything we had was delicious, my son tried veal osso buco for the first time and loved it! Pasta fagioli was delish and our pasta dishes were homemade fresh pasta. Coming from Nj this place is impressive for outside the tri-state area... Cant go wrong here, just make a reservation if you can!!

“Fantastic Italian Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2014

Easily one of the best Italian restaurants that I have ever eaten in. Food was wonderful. The Frutti de Bosco cake for dessert was incredible. If you like good Italian food like you get in New Jersey or New York, this is the place to go.
