“Excellent true Sicilian food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014

The restaurant looks like a hole in the wall from the outside, then you open it to a sweet surprise. We had a large party and ate upstairs. The restaurant prides itself on being the best at making veal, so I ordered it. Many places make it so the veal is tough. Not here! The meat was tender, the sauce was light and flavorful. The wine was great. The owner even came out to say hello. I would recommend this place. Be sure to make a reservation.

“Repeat offender!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014

This is not my first review of this restaurant! Each time I go my meal is better than the last time! I am completely hooked on the champagne chicken. But my husband got the veal and he said it was tender and delicious. It gets a bit loud inside, but the Italian flair is charming! Kind of like a little bit of Arthur Avenue in Troy, NY!

“The REAL Deal!!!!1”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

Judy & I were on our way to Sarotoga Springs when we decided to stop in Troy where Judy went to colledge(Russel Sage).

We checked out the comments on Trip Advisor and decided to go here.

When we first walked in we felt that this was the REAL deal and were we right.

The best Italian ever.
