“Delectable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2014

The food was so different and delicious. An explosion of flavors that married perfectly. It did take a bit of time but was obvious that each dish was individually crafted. The atmosphere was very warm.

“Not worth it!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014

Do not waste your time and money. We made reservations far in advance yet our table was not ready when we arrived. No apologies. Then we were seated at a wobbly table with a broken chair. The food is mediocre at best yet the prices are outrageous and beyond what we have paid in gorgeous Manhattan eateries. The servers were pretentious and poorly dressed certainly not befitting a restaurant where you pay an outlandish $65-70pp *without* drinks. Ridiculous. Never again. Oh yeah and there is zero parking!!

“Great Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2014

The Food is the Big reason to go here. The parking is another matter. Also you have to dodge traffic to gt across the street. But everything was delicious and they do make you feel right at home. I will be going back.

“The most tasty and eclectic menu on Staten Island! Her cooking classes are passionate and underpriced!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013 via mobile

Carol brings an art form to cooking! Just take one of her cooking classes to get a soulful view of her passion for culinary art! The food is a tasting experience which will delight you! The service borders on being home , on a Sunday, with an Italian Grandmothet!
