Enjoy a variety of Italian favorites - such as Lasagne Della Nonna (traditional meat lasagna), Penne Arrabbiata O Al Pomodoro (penne in a spicy homemade tomato sauce), and Melanzane Alla Parmigiana (eggplant parmigiana) - made with the highest quality Italian ingredients and with Chef Rosanna's special touch. We also offer 14 different brick oven, thin crust pizzas, including a Rustica (mozzarella, sausage, red peppers, olives and basil), a Vedova Bianca (mozzarella, ricotta, radicchio and walnuts), and our signature Donna Margherita (buffalo mozzarella, tomato "filetto" and pecorino), along with salads, appetizers, homemade desserts and a variety of wine and beer. Our cozy restaurant is a cheerful retreat from the bustle of Second Avenue. Lunch and dinner are served in our downstairs dining room where intimate twosomes as well as families and groups of friends can gather under a photographic mural of an Italian countryside.

Wonderful local gem that keeps getting better. Fresh ingredients and authentic Italian fare prepared by chef Rosanna. Our weekend "go to" but also perfect for a special occasion. Will return again and again.
This is a cute place and we had high hopes in finding a new little Italian restaurant in our neighborhood. Unfortunately the food was awful. One dish was bland. The other overly salty. The eggplant parmigiana was the size of an appetizer and greasy. Appetizer of Crostini with mozzarella mushrooms and prosciutto was like something your kid makes themselves in the toaster oven. Big disappointment.
Luigi and his staff are always welcoming. A real neighborhood find with excellent, fresh Italian cuisine...thin crusted, just out of the oven pizzas are outstanding (I'm not a pizza eater, but make an exception here).
Roseanne and staff are charming. The food is freshly prepared and amazing flavors and quality. The smaller space makes it intimate and overall lovely dining experience. It is our new neighborhood favorite.
