I have eaten here several times while visiting relatives in the city, and it is excellent... The service is great, as is the food... This restaurant has a lot of charm as well... The last time we were there, Joan Rivers was eating there with a friend, so you never know who you might see in this place... Do yourself a favor, and check it out for yourselves... You will not be disappointed...

This is one of those neighborhood gems that conveys a warm feeling of hospitality as soon as you enter. The place was packed on a recent Tuesday evening but the host gives you a welcoming smile that shows their appreciation that you're there. The four of us were seated quickly and we started off with a hot antipasto for the table. Shrimps, baked clams, grilled peppers, olives and eggplant were all quickly swept up with the accompanying warm bread. My plate-filling eggplant Parmigiana entre was the best I've ever had! My wife and her friend had the lamb chop special which included 8 chops. She said they were succulent and delicious as were the side of spinach and potato. Service was pleasant, helpful and professional. Our cappucinos and cafe's were hot and tasty. This family run business has been here for more than 50 yers and it keeps drawing diners who quickly become fans and they bring others. The several rooms have loads of character and after leaving you get the sense you've just left a friend's house. Prices were very reasonable. Try it, You'll love it!

We found this little corner restaurant and decided to stop in for dinner. The staff was great, the food was great and reasonably priced. The service began immediately with a great bruschetta and ended with a plate of sweets.Everything in-between was great. I brought my tablet to watch a baseball playoff game (discretely) and ended up have a great conversation with the maitre d' about baseball, the city, where he was from. He then brough two complimentary glasses of wine.
No doubt that I'll be back.

The service is some of the best I've ever experienced and the food was great! I had the chicken piccata and my wife had mezzaluna pasta both were fantastic! They have a very good wine list. The olives and pieces of Parmesan before the dinner was one of the best treats.
