Like others said this isn't a fancy place where a tie is required but great homemade Italian food that wearing jeans or shorts are fine. Portions match the price, not overly big but also not the price of a fancy Italian restaurant. It's a BYOB so if you drink wine you will save $20 just bringing your own. The wife loves the veal dishes and I love to try the different specials each time. The decor is nice and yes it seems a bit noisy at times but you can still have a conversation. With subs and pizza it's a great place to take the family if the parents want more than a traditional pizza shop.
