“Great food ,bad service !”
Reviewed October 7, 2012 via mobile

I called and was told If it was just two of us no reservations were needed. I arrived and stood at the door till the bartender decided to acknowledge me. He then asked how many, then pointed to a small table right next to the kitchen under a large flat screen television hanging over the table . Fearful but starving I sat under the television. After a bit I jokingly asked my wife if she had the menus, at which time someone gave us two.The rest of the service was similar, the place was packed and understaffed. Now the good part , they bring you out fried polenta cubes with a side of seasoned extra olive oil that was awesome, bread too. All the plates customers had looked great , my wife had carbonara and I had chicken breast with prosciutto and mozzarella with a homemade sauce over penne. Everything was cooked perfect. The flavors were delectable and not over powering ! The deserts , tiramisu and cannoli were good. I would visit again, just have to expect to put up with bad service for great food !

“Best Italian restaurant on island”
Reviewed July 7, 2012

We have been there a few times. No other place comes close. Absolutely delicious. Wish place was bigger so that the tables are not on top of each other. Chef Mario Batali has eaten there. Is there really anything else that needs to be said?
