Good value, got right in, got waited on right away. We had shrimp fettuccini and manicotti. Both were excellent. Desserts were just good. Should offer pistachio cannoli. Great little neighborhood hole in the wall.

The atmosphere isn't much but the food was pretty good. Seemed to taste homemade, after ordering at the front counter as we entered our meal and salad were brought to our table fast. The salad was fresh and the lasagne I ordered was very good.

Traditional Italian dining tucked between a working automotive garage on one end & "conviently" a Tavern on the other. If you crave pasta favorites such as spaghetti with meatballs, marinara or homemade Italian sausage you'll have to return several times to also try the manicotti,...More
