Food and service here has always been outstanding. I recently visited here, after having last eaten at Via Veneto approximately 25 years ago. I used to eat here regularly with my family as a child when I grew up in this neighborhood, but had not...More

We have been going for years and their consistency is always perfect. They always have great daily specials and everything we have ever tried is awesome; including their pizza.

Evening may be crowded but lunch time has always been quiet. Still this place has existed fro decades. For those who love Italian, it would be amiss if you have not tried this place once. It has lots of parking space. Also, especially at lunch,...More

We've been weekly customers of this wonderfully friendly, family-owned and run restaurant for years -- and rarely feel the need to take a break from it. All the dishes, including but not limited to the pastas, are very good, and the pizza is first rate...More

Stayed here on a whim with friends and got an upgrade to a suite for our group. Great atmosphere, restaurants, casinos and plenty to do! Staff was wonderful and already planning our next trip.

The food is incredibly fresh and delicious. We've had fish, veal, calamari, stuffed sausage and fried mozzarella as well as fresh caprese salad and it was all wonderful. Cozy place and friendly people.

This is a small, family-run Italian restaurant that's off the beaten path. The food is usually very good, but when the place gets crowded (on weekends), service can be a bit lacking. Our server recently incorrectly described a few menu items. I've had chicken cordon...More

If you like good Northern Italian food at reasonable price, come here especially at lunch time. It's not crowded at lunchtime. Run by two Italian sisters from the Marche region, I feel like I returned to Italy. Love their Fettuccine Alfredo, Tortellini a la Crema....More
