Food and service was good. Not happy about the table stuck us up front between two parties and we had to get up a couple of times to let people pass by.

We loved everything but the noise level made it hard to talk together. While the singing was good it was intrusive with the loudness. I suppose maybe a week night would be quieter.

Not a relaxing experience. Felt rushed. 4 servers on top of a table of 3. Called the restaurant prior and asked if they administer an extra charge for credit card payment and was informed no bit they do give 10% off of the bill if paid in cash. No 10% taken off. Prices higher on menu in restaurant than on website menu.

Food was very good. Everyone was pleased with their meal. However,Service wasn’t up to its standard as our waiter was sarcastic and downright rude..

The food, atmosphere, service were all 5 star. I've been a patron of the restaurant for many many years. I feel that the music should be more appropriate than someone singing very loudly and so many different genres of music takes away from the experience. I miss the days when appropriate music was played.. Martin, Sinatra, Bocelli, etc. But this would not detour me from going back.

This is simply one of the best Italian restaurants on Staten Island. The variety of pastas and entrees are excellent and the presentation is first class. They also do a fantastic ensemble of specials each day that will appeal to the curious palate. I had the grilled octopus appetizer which was super tender and served with Roma tomato wedges and ultra thin beet slices - just delicious. The linguine with assorted seafood and half lobster was awesome. They offer a good wine list with reasonably priced selections. The service was excellent and well-paced. We had a perfect evening in every way. Bravo!!!

As usual, the food was delicious. My only complaint is, due to the current pandemic, they used the banquet/party room for overflow and the ambiance is not quite the same as sitting in the main dining room. Will definitely request the main room going forward.

Excellent food - Amazing service! Felt as if my family and I were at home... The hot antipasto for two is a MUST! The mini pot of sauce you get for the calamari makes you feel like you're at Nonna's on a Sunday as you dip your bread in there... Definitely recommended!!
