The food was delicious. I love that they always have so many specials to offer rather than just the menu options. The food is so fresh. Service was fantastic and our entire experience was great!

We celebrated my son’s 16th birthday here and had an exceptional time. We brought in our own cake and the staff went above and beyond to make everything special. Service and food great. Would definitely recommend.

The place is like an upscale Manhatten Resturant . Specials are always good and main menu is consistent . Service is excellent fast and courteous with out any rushing thru your meal. Recommend it for any type of occasion.

Not a bad restaurant, the food is decent, not spectacular, the bread is served without butter or olive oil. We had the branzino special, which was good, on the dry side and without much flavor. It gets quite busy so there is a long wait time if you walk in without reservations.

Linguine alle vongole contained broken shells and plastic (appeared to be from clam netting) found in pasta. Cheese in meatballs not melted.

Will not return.

We wanted quiet, intimate atmosphere and got very loud, extremely noisy room with a nearby table of 10 twenty-something young women who were extremely boisterous, yelling over each other to be heard. The decibel level ruined our entire experience.

Felt like old time villa in Italy. lovely décor with open shutters onto sidewalk tables on a beautiful day. Fabulous branzino & Chilean Sea Bass prepared well Great Sunday sauce, glad we caught it before it ran out! Terrific service by Sal who made us feel like regular diners. Definitely going back for more!!!

Very good restaurant. Friendly and attentive staff. Lots of choices for appetizers, salads, entrees with generous portions. The wine by the glass was on the expensive side.

We started with broccoli rabe and sausage egg rolls oh, excellent. Then went into rigatoni filetto di pomodoro, superb. Our entrees where a cowboy steak and a swordfish steak. Both were excellent. Prepared perfectly. For dessert we had homemade Napoleon with fruit. Absolutely unbelievable. Never had anything like it anywhere else.

We order several apps instead of having dinner. The food was good but they brought all the dishes at the same time.

Very Disappointed in the food. We split the special and the pasta was not cooked all of the way, the seafood was not that good either. This is the fourth time we have eaten here and the second time we have been disappointed. Not sure we will be back.

This was our second time eating there. The first time was the best as far as the food goes. The second time was a little less tasty. Maybe it was the dishes that we ordered. Overall, a great restaurant.

Nice atmosphere, great food with generous portions. Friendly attentive wait staff. Nice size outdoor seating area . There are TVs in each room if you are a sports fan. It is a popular restaurant & crowded at least on weekends. It’s a large restaurant & the noise level can get quite loud. If we return during the warm weather would definitely try to sit outside to avoid the noise.

Outside sitting nice on a warm windless day. Garage door opening allows indoor diners to also experience dining outdoors if you prefer. Waiters
are very attentive and helpful.

It was a glorious day and we sat outside which was beautiful and relaxing. Baked clams were delicious. House salad fresh and well dressed. Spaghetti was awesome. With crispy breadcrumbs anchovies pepperoncino and garlic! Such a nice change from red sauce. Lava cake for dessert. What a lunch!
