  • "Made reservations through open table and it worked out well. Arrived a few minutes late however we were promply seated. The waiter was very attentitive and our food arrived in a timely manner. Outstanding quality and the portions were a little larger than the last time we were there several years ago. The server offered several suggestions as to wine and apps and we took him up on those and we were not disappointed. Overall, a very pleasant experience and we will go back again and recommend this place to others. We also noticed that the bar had some entertainment and we will keep this in mine for the future as it looked very warm and welcoming."

  • "Our 1st time visit & on New Years Eve. Very impressed with all the dinners & all were absolutely delicious. The place was packed but we were not rushed. Our waiter was very polite & courteous. Water glasses were promptly refilled without asking. Noticed the owner visiting tables where he could get to them. A return visit is in order."

  • "We found this place on OpenTable after not getting a table at our usual Italian resturant. This turned out to be a better overall experience. The food was excellent and the staff was friendly and the owners were especially welcoming to the elders. One note is that the food takes time to come and there is a "disclaimer" on the menu! But when it arrives, it is worth the wait. This will now be our go-to place when we are in the area."

  • "The atmosphere is comfortable and relaxed. We enjoyed everything we ordered. The baked mozzarella with pomodoro sauce was delicious and the Caesar salad was crisp. The homemade fettucini noodles in a carbonara sauce were very tasty. Equally good was the lobster ravioli in a vodka cream sauce. We finished off our meal with chocolate cake, which was quite good."
