“Nice place with a great atmosphere”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

Went here and found the atmosphere and service very nice. The prices were a little high but the food was good. The portion sizes were a little larger than most too.

“Check your bill”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

The food is good, but the layout makes the place appear to be disorganized. They gave me a hard time when I presented them their own newspaper coupon for a couple of dollars off. I dislike cheap.

“Always a great visit!”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

We have eaten here many times over the past few years. The food and service has always been consistently very good. They have a good, well rounded Italian menu that's not overly priced. The kitchen usually has 4-5 specials for dinner, which we usually try, and have always enjoyed. The food arrives hot and is nicely plated. The chef will even prepare an "off menu" request (ex., simple grilled Salmon filet) if they have the ingredients! Save room for the end though, for the desserts are not to be missed (especially if you like chocolate)! The atmosphere varies from a nice bar area, to umbrella covered outdoor dining, to an upstairs dining room which is casually comfortable. The staff is very friendly, greeting you with smiles and a "good evening" upon leaving. The wait staff is also very attentive, making sure glasses are refilled, checking that the food is OK , and clearing dinner plates when done. Our server on our last visit, Mike, was just another shining example of this! They easily accommodate both small and large parties with ease. We will definitely return and are sure to have another wonderful dining experience.

“Don't Miss This One”
Reviewed June 9, 2012

12 had dinner here 6/8/12. Everyone raved about the food! No exceptions! Crab Cakes were outstanding, probably ranking among the 5 best we've ever had - large with lump crab meat. Rib eye; chicken breat with spinach, mushrooms, marinara and garlic mashed potatoes; chiken breasts in a lemon/butter/white wine sauce; veal parmajon (spelling?); veal marsella - all outstanding. Appetizers included calamerri, large shrimp in a butter/white wine, bruscetto. All excellent. Great wine list good selection of beers. Mixed drinks were very good. Desserts were varied and excellent (try anything chocolate!). Service was attentive. Only drawback was that the crab cakes took about 5 minutes more than all the other dinners. One of the better Italian restaurants we've visited in a very long time.
