Food was authentic Italian and so many specials available for the evening. Our server was attentive and our wait between courses was clearly not her fault. Every seat in this tiny dining room was taken and the two servers were busy on the Monday night we were there. Kitchen was apparently backed up. The food was worth the wait and we will be back.

Food was very good, but a little pricey. The barramundi special was $38. I had the same dish at Nauvoo Grill for $24.
Service was professional and attentive.
I would recommend it and I will return, but I will ask the price of the specials, before ordering one.

GLUTEN FREE PERSON ATE HERE AND WAS VERY HAPPY! First time here and I have to say it was a definite 5 star. Perfectly made meals to exceptional service. Family owned and operated. Named after THE Owner Frankie's Mom. Each meal is made to order. The ingredients are all very fresh. The smell coming from the kitchen is like being home on Sunday for dinner. I had salmon in a delicate tomato base, garlic, olive oil and I think a touch of wine and lemon. Served over spinach with roasted potatoes. The flavors of this dish is still lingering in my mind and I can't wait to go back. Generous portions for a hungry appetite. The rest of the family had pasta dishes which they said were beyond fabulous. It's not a big place so make a reservation and BYOB. A definite must try for some fabulous home cooking. I really don't understand some of the not so favorable reviews as this place is wonderful.

This restaurant is about 500 yards from my house. Every meal I've had there has been great and I really should get off my butt and become a regular. Everything on the menu appeals to me... compared to other restaurants where I'm at pains to find something I might enjoy. Finally, the BYOB aspect of it makes the meal very reasonable in price. The service is good - what's not to like?

Really bad service. Reservation for 7PM but didn’t get seated for 25 minutes even though two groups coming after us did. Then didn’t see our waiter for another 15. Then the waiter was off drinking wine while we were waiting for our check?! They did try to make it up with a complimentary “amuse Bouche” aka ravioli of day when we were seated but not enough to make amends for the service we received after we were finally seated.

They have a limited menu, food was very good. It took some time to be served, which I think was a mix of the kitchen and server. It was very good, not sure it we will go back.

Authentic Italian cuisine with contemporary notes
Very accommodating
Our server was excellent prepared courteous knowledgeable and very accommodating
I really don’t want to tell too many people about it . Love the charming ambience - it’s not gorgeous and it’s not updated . The food is the star of the show .
Enjoyed our fish and pasta entrees immensely
Appetizers were creative and beautiful to admire and to eat
Desserts delicious

Disappointed in the service-and the angle Hair shrimp special of the day was not very good- we could never get our servers attention, others helped , but it was annoying- and he rudely dropped off our check as we received our dessert, so we felt rushed- paid, finished and as we left no one even said goodbye or thank you- I do not think we complained or were rude or demanding so not sure why the staff was not friendlier. We didn’t even say anything when the busboy bumped my sons chair so hard he visibly bolted forward- so excuse me, sorry or acknowledgement- very off evening !!

Everything was perfect! Our server Colin, who has waited on us before, is knowledgeable and outstanding! Attentive without being there too much! Food is excellent! We love the fact that you can get small portions of pasta. Not being People who eat large amounts of food, we can get an appetizer plus a portion of pasta that was more than enough and delicious! Love it!

Really enjoyed the food but found it a bit over priced for what we got (4 raviolis for $20+). Also, there were 8 of us and had very little elbow room.
