We started as a family owned business and still operate as one today. All of our recipes are created by Owner/Chef Salvatore Virgi and are inspired by his hometown of Naples, Italy. We serve authentic Italian cuisine with imported Italian goods (including the oven)!

If you are finding no reservation availability online, please give the restaurant a call as we may still be able to accomodate you.

We are still available for Indoor & Outdoor seating! Stay warm under our tents with plenty of heat lamps to keep you toasty warm while you enjoy a delicious meal!

    Good food, service was very bad. The waitress dropped the plates on our table and walked away without saying anything, pretty strange.

    We were a party of five. Nearly all of our dishes were over-salted, and nothing stood out. This town has great Italian restaurants. At this price point, there are plenty of preferable options.

    I always love going to this restaurant. Yesterday the service was a little slow but I know they were very busy … the servers were super nice but just understaffed. I definitely recommend this place!

    Went on a family dinner because we heard how good the food was. It was truly a great meal! The pasta dishes and the appetizers were phenomenal! It's not a fancy place , but we weren't looking for anything more than delicious food and that is exactly what we got! The servers were so friendly and accommodating, which made it an even better experience. We will definitely be back!

    Food was average. Service was good Value was below average and then on top of that there was a surcharge that was not made known to us until we received the bill . The surcharge of 20% plus another 4% for using a credit card. Overall we ended up paying four dollar sign price for two dollar sign quality and a one dollar sign ambience. Don’t go to this restaurant. The prices we were charged on the check were 20% higher than the prices on the menu. We were also charged a 4% surcharge for using a credit card. None of this was told to us before we sat down until we received the bill.

    Nice neighborhood Italian place. Very homey. Food was great. Limited beverage choices (we didn't bring wine) and it would have been 5 stars if there were gluten free pasta options. My friend who is Italian descent loved the food too.

    So hot in the restaurant. I wasn't told there was a downstairs dining room. Sat outside and bitten by mosquitoes, and the sun was in our faces the entire time. Informed the server, we do not eat pork, 9rdered the kid's meals. Kids' meals came out after we got ours, and we ordered about 20 minutes later. The pasta came with pork. One of the kids is from everyone's plate because the service was not up to par. Perhaps fix the AC so your staff can feel comfortable serving your food. I felt sorry for the team inside the restaurant.

    Our first time here--we will be back. Except for lack of parking nearby, a great spot. We just ordered specials, share for 2: App: rolled roasted red peppers around ricotta wit red sauce--tasty start Branzino with skin on--generous sharable delicious. Lamb chops on bricolli rabe & potatoes were also excellent. Busy night with short handed staff but they hustled & got everyone served. BYOB--highly recommended.

    Made reservation for V day. Was there on time, no one greeted us. Took someone else instead of us. They made us sit outside even though our reservation was for indoor. After 15 min of no waitress, we left. I can’t comment on food. V day was hectic as I see and there was no structure in restaurant for this special day.

    We had a last minute business/ friend dinner. Trying to find a place to accommodate 7 of us so quickly was difficult to say at a minimum. I called and Monica said no worries come and we will make it happen. I left my expectations there! When the food came out I could not believe how delicious the food was and they had availability! Everyone at the table planned to share but when started eating did not want to give up their food. Will absolutely be returning here!

    Absolutely delicious meal. One of my favorite Italian meals ever! We had a bit of a rocky start when after we were seating they asked us to move to accommodate another reservation. This little blip was soon forgotten after we got our appetizers. The bruschetta to start was amazing and my boyfriend and I were beyond pleased with our pasta dishes. Would definitely take the drive to come again.

    Little pricey for what we ended up receiving. $18 for 3 mushrooms? The "scallops" and linguine were very disappointing, scallops were the size of nickels and had an off taste taste that threw off everything. They also didn't inform my table there was an up charge to pay with a card. There were times me an my date went 20 minutes without our waitress even interacting with us. Idk I'm usually not a harsh critic but this wasn't their best, disappointing Vday meal to say the least.
