    Food was delicious. Grandson said it was the best pizza he ever had. Lamb shank over risotto was awesome. Service was terrific without being pushy.

    We had a group of 7 people and all were happy with their meals. Food was a bit oversalted, the only complaint I had. Server was slow in taking our orders, as well as in delivering food. We had to ask to get our check when we had been sitting and finished eating for at least 30 mins. We were all seated and ready to order by 6 but didn't get out till after 8.

    I really wanted to like this place based on other reviews saying it's a great neighborhood restaurant. Unfortunately, my Fruit de Mar pasta was really salty, as was my wife's tilapia, her potatotes on the side, and my cousin's entree. Four of the five adults at the table all agreed that our food was over-salted. I'm guessing the line cook was way too heavy with the salt shaker, but the owner/manager has to control it. We all barely ate our dinners and packed our meals to go, so we could dilute the sauces at home.

    Love sitting in the patio area on a nice evening. It is covered so weather not a big factor. Prices are great for the quality and amount of food you get. This restaurant is a go to for my family or friend get togethers. It has a more casual feel than other Italian places in this area. I haven’t had a single bad meal from here- give it a try!

    Outstanding service and delicious Italian cuisine. This was our first time dining here and we weren’t disappointed. We relied on reviews about being able to hold a conversation with the quiet atmosphere and the reviews were accurate. What the restaurant is missing in ambiance it makes up for with the food and service. We’ll be back.

    The place was empty on a Friday night. Not sure why because our experience was delightful. There were a few people who came in to pick up orders. Our wait staff was attentive and friendly. The food was delicious from the appetizer, caprese salad, to our entrees. I got chicken lemon which was very good with some perfectly cooked fresh vegetables and my husband likes carbonara. I don’t like it but I couldn’t help myself from eating some of his. It was the best I’ve ever tasted. Next time we are staying at our daughter’s in the city, we will remember this place.
