This place is classic. Has been in business over 50 years. The location is a little sketchy, but there's plenty of parking. They start you with delicious warm bread and then a complimentary bruschetta. The chicken lazzara and arabiatta are my favorites. My husband enjoys the chicken Murphy, which is spicy and tasty. The menu has something for everyone. It's usually packed, so call ahead. There's a bar with karaoke some nites. The service is great. The owner is usually around and mingling, nice touch. This is a solid choice.

Librettis is our favorite Italian restaurant. Food is always delicious. Service is top notch and the atmosphere of an old fashion Italian restaurant Place is lovely. Veal Marsala and parmigiana are favorites. . Bread hot and yummy. Great drinks. Danny the owner is so friendly and the staff is as well. Can't go wrong

A group of friends went out for dinner on a Saturday night and we all had a fantastic time.The place has an old time feel but it isn't old or run down.Its run by the same family for 50 years and the food and atmosphere is great.It felt like when we used to go out to eat with my parents and uncles back in the early seventies.The bar area is covered with old pictures.The service was good as the manager provided complimentry bruschetta,and the bread was excellent.I had the Chicken Arriabata and my wife had the Gnocchi,which she said was one of the best she had.The evening was topped off by a few Karaoke numbers in the bar before we left.Inwould definitely recommend it for a night outvwithbfriends or family.

This dish is fabulous and not to be missed, otherwise it's a good restaurant with a long history. There's a watchman in the parking lot for your safety, not that we've ever had a problem. Decor is reminiscent of the 1960's.
