This tiny place has charm, reminds me os summers on the Jersey shore as a child. The food is prepared well, veggies perfect, pasta al dente and hardy tomato sauce, though they call it "gravy". Big controversy over the name among east coast Italian-Americans. It's not your foo-foo fancy Italian and it's not your run of the mill Italian chain food either. It is, to me, down-home favorites served in a charming little neighborhood place. I do have to say that the service, though friendly, was better the first time we dined there. We will keep coming back.
