This is just a wonderful Italian restaurant. The selection is great. They will make items not on the menu. The service is excellent. The tables aren’t to close together. It not to loud. They seat you on time.

We had a great meal here and enjoyed the wait staff. The food was delicious and hot, made just right. We felt no pressure to hurry out of there and relaxed with our group. Will definitely be back!

This restaurant has been around for a long time. There’s a reason for that, it’s great. Wonderful Italian food with great service. Four of us were extremely pleased with our food. I even asked if they could do baked clams for me, which wasn’t on the menu, and they did at a very reasonable price. Couldn’t have been happier.

Food was great Waiter was very attentive Disappointed as I asked for a seat by the window on my RSVP had made the reservation weeks ago Did not honor my request There were two window seats open . I would say if you are not going to honor a request Don't ask if I have a special request. This has happened to me before here.
