“Fun Time and Good Food”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

Was invited to dinner here by a vendor with 9 other colleagues. This was my first time and we all agreed the food was great. But what really sets it apart is the staff and the tradition. We were greeted very cordially and seated in a semi-private area up front. Service was wonderful. Our waiter was very droll and entertaining. When one of our party couldn't make up her mind which dessert to have, he passed on her and then came back. She finally said, "I won't have dessert," and he replied, "yes you will," and brought her the tartuffo. Very funny.

My steak was wonderful and the appetizers selected for the table (grilled shrimp, fried calamari, antipasto and caprese salad) couldn't have been better.

Would go back.

“Great meal while in the area on business”
Reviewed February 14, 2013 via mobile

Stopped in on a whim after looking here for a nearby Restaraunt while in town on business. We had a great meal in this quaint but excellent establishment. Very nicely appointed for the price range and all members of the party found the food to be well above expectatioins. The prices were also reasonable.

Beyond the food, I found the employees - or should I say characters - to be a delight and greatly enhanced the experience. Mr Johnny himself offered to "buy us" a glass of wine since he hadn't seen us before. I will definitely be back!
