This family owned restaurant is a gem!
The food is always fresh and delicious and the service is top notch. The family takes pride in what they are doing and it clearly shows.
I recommend whatever specials are listed on the board as well as the standard fare including excellent seafood.

We went with a group of 9 people, three of them under the age of three. Service was good and they were very accommodating for the children. The only bad experience we had was that they forgot one of our meals and it took a while to get it out. The runner for the food was a bit rude about it as well; however, the waitress did everything she could to rectify the issue. Once everyone did have their food they all seemed to enjoy their dish. I would go back but if I do it will be with a smaller group as I feel we overwhelmed them a bit, especially since it is a fairly small dining room.

The food is always excellent whether you order one of their specials or standard items. We dine here at least once per week and are never disappointed. Everyone is super friendly. Not your typical pizza/restaurant food. Prepared better.

Terrible. We made a Thanksgiving reservation for 7:00 PM on Valentine's Day. They overbooked by a significant amount. There were probably 8-9 other couples with reservations who were waiting. We were told it would be 45 minutes or more. So we left and went elsewhere. WHY DO RESTAURANTS USE OPEN TABLE IF THEY DON'T HONOR RESERVATIONS? This has happened to us before.

Reservations meant nothing. Had to wait 1/2 hour. Then food took 45 minutes to come. Had to ask twice was it ready.

Fantastic food. I had the shrimp parmigiana and it was delicious. I also ordered gluten free pasta! My husband had a chicken special with mushrooms in a brown sauce and he loved it. We finished off with a slice of cheesecake that was delicious. We have always liked this restaurant and realized that we should go there more often!!

The menu is authentic Italian, and everything we ordered was outstanding. The service was great, and our host, Peter, was constantly circulating to make sure all his guests were happy. Make reservations because at dinner time on a Friday night, it is standing room only! Worth the wait. Will go back again.

Great little place, the service was awesome, the food really tasty a true neighborhood gem, and to think I have been living around here for thirty five years and it never occurred to me to go there. The host was very friendly and our server was extremely knowledgeable and could recommend your favorite dishes if you told her what your preferences were. All in all it was a great experience for a casual night out and will definitely go back.

I made reservations here for 13 people for my sister birthday. When we arrive they were running alittle behind so they gave us free appetizers while we waited which was thoughtful and great.

Service was good and you can tell they always wanted to make sure everyone was okay. After our nice dinner they brought out cannolis and an assortment of cookies for my sister birthday which was on the house.

My sister had an amazing birthday dinner and we were all very happy.

Thank you!

Can't say how good the food was because I never tasted it!! Had an open table reservation and arrived a few minutes early, so I did not mind waiting. After my reservation time passed, they promised me a table in 'a few minutes' numerous times, until I ended up leaving after standing there over a half hour!! I spoke to a guy in charge a couple of days later, but he wasn't very accommodating.
