I went to this restaurant months ago, but the food was incredible. Everything from the salad to the cheese bread and dessert was great. The pasta is homemade! You really cannot beat that. On top of that, the meal was inexpensive. Great food, great value.

But I gave it an average rating because the seating is near claustrophobic, despite how good the food is. Eating outside is a pleasure, with wonderful ambiance overlooking the Thames River and New London.

I will usually get the scallop special or chicken parm. Very good food and fresh pasta. Get the small because the large is huge!
