Ordered family style. Have to say everyone really loved the penne with vodka sauce. The other dishes were very good also. Service was friendly and outstanding.

One of the best family restaurants in the neighborhood. I would recommend it for two or for a party. Take out or catering. A must try.

My friend had them cater her party a few weeks ago, the food was delicious, so we were having a friend night out and thought to go there. It was fabulous! Drinks were great at the bar - they gave you a big drink, food was excellent, service was wonderful. Our waiter dished out all the courses and described everything - they serve family style which is really nice to be able to taste all the different dishes. We ordered a bottle of the most expensive wine on menu -$80 (not bad) and the wine was great. The total bill was under what we expected - these days. Great value and no complaints. The décor is a bit dated but we were told they are renovating in near future. I would recommend this restaurant to all.

I can’t say enough for this restaurant. The food was amazing. The staff was on top but not overwhelming. Everyone knew their jobs and it made the whole evening run smoothly. I recognized the sauce (gravy) from La Parma and it was delicious and spot on!
Will be our go to Italian restaurant and I will tell all my friends.

This was one of the worse dining experiences I have ever had. We sat down and there was a terrible cold draft from an air conditioner vent. We moved to another table which helped. The first thing we asked the young waiter, who admitted that he was new, was can they do gluten free since one of our party had a bad allergy. He said everything could be served gluten free. After taking our order, he came back sometime later to say that only sole or chicken without sauce was gluten free. If we knew that we would have left without ordering. The lonely $18 piece of fish was barely enough to satisfy a hunger. Since everything is ala carte he ordered a $10 side of broccoli. So his meal cost $28 for a small tasteless piece of filet and some brocolli. The rest of our meals came out sporadically, the fish was digested before the other three in the party got their doughy pasta which in turn got cold before the chicken parmigiana arrived. The young waiter gave excuses like he was very busy and the order was messed up in the kitchen. The food is pizza restaurant quality and the family sized portions barely fed two. The pasta with marina sauce cost almost as much as the chicken parmigiana! We spoke to the manager on the way out who gave every excuse in the book and took responsibility for nothing. She didn't even offer to give us a courtesy if we came back on another day and gave the restaurant another chance. Avoid this place like the plague.

The stuffed mushrooms were tasty but slightly undercooked. The veal Marsala with asiago cheese melted on top was delicious... the veal was sliced thin and the sauce was tasty. The roasted potatoes were soft and tender as we're the asparagus. Overall, a hearty and delicious meal.

The dining room was closed.
We had to sit in the bar area, which I usually like.
Thiere were only 2 tables of 2 in the restaurant.
Therefore, we had to right next to other patrons. Basically, right on top of them!
I like the food, but in this case I was unhappy with the very close proximity of the table choices I had.
The restaurant really needs to update their decor.
The bar is pretty small, too.

I have really come to appreciate the quality of food that Frank puts on the table for his customers. Like a Sunday meal at home, in a family oriented restaurant. The chicken wings are so yummy, as are most of dishes he prepared. Can't recommend this restaurant enough!
