Food was excellent. Unfortunately we went during restaurant week and the place was packed. We were a party of 6 and we were squashed in a table all the way in the back near the kitchen. Our table was always in the way of the staff. But we did enjoy our dinner very much.

Great food & service. Jumbo shrimp, tender eggplant & pasta cooked al dente. Red & white sauces are very tasty. Friendly & knowledgeable waitstaff. Their lunch special is a bargain. Delicious homemade soups & Champagne dressing are a must.

Our reservation was for 7pm. We were still waiting to be seated at 7:30. The place was mobbed with people. They were not putting open table reservations before walk ins. We left without eating. The food is always amazing and the wait staff are wonderful but we will not be going back.

This is our go-to local Italian restaurant. No matter where else we go, we think the sauces here are the most delicious--and we do go to a lot of other Italian restaurants because several of our friends want to go to a "fancier" restaurant on Saturday nights.

A big, gloppy bowl of fried calamari, drowning in tomato sauce, on a bed of ricotta cheese? Ugh.

Service was painfully slow, as the kitchen was overwhelmed.

Inattentive service - my drink remained empty almost 20 minutes, even after three requests for a refill.

Maybe we caught them on a bad night. We won’t come back to find out.

Food is excellent. I was disappointed for my friend who ordered a veal entree and was told after 1/2 hour of ordering the meal that they didn’t have any veal available. I felt that the waiter should have known this when the order was placed. My meal was delicious and service was excellent.

It’s a local pizzeria with a restaurant in the back. It was busy, and our waitress had a couple of bigger tables, so we waited longer than we should have, feeling a little ignored, but another waitress noticed and took care of us. We weren’t in a rush, so it worked out. They brought out bread, which was excellent. There was a small bottle of olive oil on the table, it would have been outstanding if it was herbed for dipping. Fried calamari was delicious, not chewy at all, and the tomato sauce was fresh and tasty. I ordered lasagne, it was a good portion, hearty and delicious. My daughter’s shrimp dish, with artichoke hearts in a lemony brownish sauce was also quite good. We brought home leftovers, always a bonus. I’d certainly recommend and go back.
