This place is a total throwback in the best pay possible. Everything from the decor to the food to the waitresses was authentic Italian. Their menu was a best of OLD Italian food and they delivered. They were short staffed (2 no shows = no servers AT ALL) and they still pulled through by conscripting the hostess to wait tables. I would venture to say that all the reviews talking about poor service at this place didn't know the back story with issues hiring good employees which the restaurant shouldn't be faulted for at all. Excellent food great OLD school atmosphere and you can smoke in the bar. (No smoke smell in the restaurant area at all). I would definitely go there again.
