The service was friendly, the food wasn't great. We ordered traditional Italian dishes. Everything was blah.

This 32-chair, family-owned/operated Italian restaurant was fairly busy mid-week. We started off sharing the passatina di ceci appetizer - rosemary grilled shrimp & scallops on a bed of garbanzo bean puree that was just okay. Ann ordered pollo Sorrentina - chicken w/sliced eggplant, mozzarella cheese in a light tomato sauce. My entree was penne camagnola - pasta with broccoli, tomatoes sauce, chicken, roasted garlic and sundried tomatoes. Each dish was pretty good, but nothing out of the ordinary.

A rating of 2.5 would be more appropriate.

good service but blaah food. Good but nothing special. The marinara was not too good. The eggplant was so thin that I could not taste it.

After driving by this place a thousand times we finally ate here! They had a Groupon deal so that helped get us there us faster. It was a a great find. I read on the website and learned of the powerhouse team that is running the restaurant so I wasn't surprised it was really nice. We loved the small intimate feel of the place. The host had a thick Italian accent which I really enjoyed. Especially being in an Italian restaurant.

PROS:
*Caesar's Salad - looks plain in the pictures but the dressing they make from scratch is on point.

*Eggplant alla Parmigiana- HUGE portion. The eggplant was thin and breaded stacked on top of each other (3 or 4 layers) then home-made mozzarella melted with sauce on top. If I could change one thing I would ask for a little more sauce on the eggplant.

*Chicken Sorrento- Chicken breast with eggplant and mozzarella with sauce. Tender chicken, large portion.

*Pasta comes with the entrees

*Italian host - his accent

*Pasta is hand made on the premises. Desserts are all home made too. All Italian desserts!

CONS:
*Only open for dinner

There was a tv set in the upper corner of the room but muted. A cooking show was on at 7:30pm Friday night. I didn't understand why that was there or even turned on. But I wasn't facing the tv and it didn't bother me. It just seemed out of place for the atmosphere the restaurant aired. Make reservations on the weekend. It was crowded around 7:30 Friday night.
