Waitress on her second night was very good. Left a credit card behind and she ran it out to to the parking lot before we left.

Food was mediocre for the very high pricing and not much variety for an Italian restaurant.

Although the restaurant was not full, I was unable to get one of the items listed in the special menu. The veal and shrimp dish was somewhat bland and disappointing.

I loved the lobster ravioli and my partner enjoyed the veal caprese. We had the Italian fondue which ended up being very strong and some of the cheese was not melted. We just took that home with us.

Thoroughly enjoyed dining experience. Early dinner so provided lunch menu but it was still a good selection. Loved everything including fried Calamari, bronzino (fish of the day) , and crab meat over angel hair pasta!

Great to have a real Italian restaurant in the neighborhood, not the Italian-ish American restaurants all around.

The food is excellent and the seafood salad was outstanding,.
The service is quite quick, indeed.

We have tried Italian food in NY, London, Tokyo, ext. and this is one of our favorites in PA.

The lobster ravioli was delicious! As soon as we sat down our waiter poured us some water and brought us bread while we were ordering! Not even ten minutes later our food was out to us! We also got dessert which was perfect! We will definitely be returning!

Bronzino was perfection. Server recommended with a white wine caper sauce and the side of Angel Hair w red sauce was perfectly executed.
My guests had shrimp and scallops and ravioli and were raving.
Service was attentive and not overbearing.
I hope to return soon!

Wonderful experience, dinner on the patio ; Family friendly, and WONDERFUL food.

The cheese & charcuterie board was perfect for 2 adults. I enjoyed the Lobster ravioli ( the sauce is out of this world!) while my wife had the rack of lamb special. For dessert, the NY cheese cake was as expected and my wife's crème brûlée had the requisite vanilla bean and crunchy sweet top.

Will visit again, as this place checks all of our boxes for locality, quality and service.

This is one of the best restaurants in the area. The food is always superb and Sal, Aprile and the entire staff make you feel like family. They typically have a couple of specials and all the fish, pasta and all the food is delicious.
