The food is always delicious and they have a nice mix of traditional and modern Italian dishes. Service was very slow yesterday but I’m hoping it was just a one time thing

Brooke was outstanding. Drinks were great. Took my father there for his birthday. He said his chicken marsala was one of the best he had. He really enjoyed it. The lasagna was delicious could use a little more sauce. The bolognese was excellent. Deserts were great too. All around great dining experience. Will return. Thanks.

The service was excellent and everyone was very welcoming and friendly. We started with Grandma's meatballs. Our entrees were chicken piccata, chicken scarpariello, and rigatoni a la vodka. The portions were large and everything was delicious.

I've passed this restaurant many times and was curious to see how it was. I just say I was disappointed in my experience. From walking in you were not really greeted warmly. The decor is dated and not what I expected. We waited for sometime for service. One waitress for the entire dining room. Thank goodness for the bus boy. Once our waitress arrived we ordered a bottle of wine. I was surprised how costly it was. Our appetizer was meatballs and I must say they were very tasty. The main course was a breaded pork lion with salad. The pork was overcooked and the salad on top was too much. We decided to try the "homenade" cheese cake. It was old and stale. We sent it back. When the bill came I was astounded by the price. Sadly I will not return. I wish them well.

Food was good. Service was eh. Had to search for the waitress and in the end the busboy helped. Only three tables at the time so not sure why it was hard to find her. Food good with the exception of the penne vodka not tossed ... the vodka sauce plopped onto pasta. Had to mix myself. Otherwise food good. Will stop in again.

Nice family run business. Been there several times, nice menu and food is consistently good. Just pray that you don’t get the owner’s daughter as your waitress, HORRIBLE !!!. I’ll leave it at that. I will return and cross my fingers that it’s her day off....

Lovely.. food was delicious.. but much too much salt. Especially on the salad. Ask in advance for no salt on your food (or reduced salt) and your meal will be perfect!
