    This is a tale of two extremes. Food vs ambience. The food was outstanding and plentiful. Our waitress correctly said, "Nothing here is small" when my wife inquired about the size of the Caesar salad. I gave the ambience 1 star only because zero stars was not an option. Go here for the food. It's very loud and very cramped. As for recommending to a friend, it would be a "Yes" with aforementioned caveats.

    Tables are on top of one another. Ambience is poor. Food was average but prices higher than average. Portions were large and service was good, which is a plus. Based on my experience eating at restaurants in the Main Line, I would not recommend this restaurant.

    This was our first time here and won’t be our last! From the moment we walked in we felt welcome. Our server Valerie was great! I come from a family that was born and raised in Italy and dining here felt like I was having a meal with friends and family. The portions were large and the food was amazing! I would definitely recommend :)

    could be best Italian food on main line. lots of patrons crowded into small place, so it can get a bit loud, but the superb food is worth it. portions are enormous so you will take home as much as you eat there.

    As always, the staff and food are beyond exceptional. If you want to have an authentic South Philadelphia, Italian meal without driving to Phila, this is the spot on the Main Line. It’s a small spot and tables are close together so not a romantic dinner spot, however the food and atmosphere is Exceptional! So many options on the menu that are all super delicious. Make a reservation! Bring your favorite bottle of wine and a few friends and enjoy!!! You will leave there thinking about the next time you can go back! 5 stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    The food was delicious. There was one waitress for the entire restaurant but she was efficient and friendly. We probably would have ordered dessert, but they didn’t have any decaf coffee or tea to serve it with.

    Always delicious— arrive early for parking, especially on the weekends. BYOB - remember to bring your own wine. Tables are tightly put together so you are very close to others- there a couple booths, but you might need to request them when reserving. Very friendly and you feel like it’s an extension of home. Food is great and reasonably priced. Definitely a local gem in Berwyn.

    We arrived, and it was very busy. Every table was full. We had a long wait until we could speak to someone from the restaurant. She was very rude and told us that they had just had a lot of walkins. They were not able to accommodate our reservation. They would not give us an estimated time to our table. She even volunteered the spelling of her name to us for the complaint. The restaurant was overpacked. We left. It would have been too crowded in there anyway. They clearly didn’t want or need our business.

    Great food at reasonable prices. Big selection of authentic Italian food. Chef Frank prepares delicious food in good portions. We had to bring some food home; we couldn't eat everything. Dine here if you want a great meal, with friendly servers and chef, at a good price, in a nice, friendly, casual environment. We'll be back.
