Excellent meal. However the table by the window is dark and cramped. I don,t think you should offer it. And, we reserved at least 10 in advance through open table requestiong a table in the middle of the restaurant. We got the “last” table by the window. Uncomfortable.

We ate family style and started with the Prosciutto & Melone fresh and clean & Calamari & it was very Italian, broiled and served in a lovely marinara. The Vongole was one of the best outside of Italy. We finished with Ossobuco & Cioppino di Mare and were please with both dishes all washed down with a bottle of Colle Secco :o)

I had high hopes for this restaurant it was seriously mediocre including the service food which is really nothing too exciting or special. In comparison to other restaurant of same price range - this restaurant completely pales to compare. Nice owners but just not up to par - which is too bad

We dine here probably on an average of once a month and have done so for several years now. This cozy Italian restaurant is owned and run by a husband and wife team Rosa and Pino. Although in reality you are in an intimate dining setting, you feel as if you have been transported to Italy given the home-cooked meals. The food is creatively seasoned, beautifully presented and portions are always generous. Rosa makes the desserts herself which make them very challenging to resist! Service is excellent with constant vigilance yet at the same time quietly unobtrusive. I always receive a warm welcome and feel like I have come into Pino and Rosa's home if only for a couple of hours!
