The location is lovely, right on the Delaware. The food is ok, not great. We go there somewhat frequently because is very close, although the food is not great. The pasta dishes are fairly standard for what passesfor italian food in the area. The fish is often overcooked and somewhatdry.. The meat dishes are ok. This time i had steak au poivre. Reasonably good, not the best beef but adequate. The pork chop was very good. The eggplant parmigiana so so. Oversauced , skimpy on cheese. Very good garlic bread. Service is always competent and friendly.

Dinner with daughter and son-in-law was outstanding. Quiet time with family, great menu. You have to try the Gorganzola over Pasta and the hot Garlic Bread.

Small, charming BYOB right on the river. Food was excellent and service was polite and friendly. Pastas were well cooked and proteins were perfectly done and full of flavor. Whatever wine you choose to bring along, there will be great options to complement it. Seating is a bit tight, but that adds to the charm. You will need a reservation - it's a popular place.

We visited on a recent Sunday night. Although the restaurant was full and extremely busy, our server was professional, friendly, and never missed a beat even though she was busy. She was a pleasure. The mix of garlic wheat bread and white bread, arrived promptly and warm. It is delicious. The caprese salad made with soft, fresh mozzarella was amazing. The flavorful lasagna is stacked high and generously. The fettuccine with Italian Gorgonzola cheese and filet mignon was a unique and delicious dish. The filet was cooked as ordered and tender. The only negative was the desert, a raspberry cheesecake.

Small byob on the river! Reservations are must b/c of limited seating... Great for groups or just a romantic dinner.... Food is fresh and our apps and entree's were delicious. Negatives: Dessert was dry and pretty gross and pricey at 8 bucks (but we didn't complain or send it back) Also our server through out my left overs... He did apologize and offered to make the portion amount that I had left.. Would go back but this is also the sister restaurant to Florentino's in newtown which is much closer so to us... definitely check that out!
