Very small but lively place. Very good food, and good service. If you go for dinner, be prepared to wait, it is worth the wait if you like small and good places. It is crowded for a reason!!! Service is always good, considering how busy they are. I usually get the Veal or Chicken Avezzano. Very good Calamari as well.

We had lunch here and loved it. The chicken piccata was tender and flavorful. My husband had the lasagna and although it wasn't as spicy as he would have like the sauce was delicious.

went here with a local friend. Dont let the size or appearance frighten you. This place is really wonderful. I had the minestrone soup (one of the best) and Lasagna (super). Would absolutely go again

Great little restaurant...Authentic Italian cuisine and atmosphere. Welcomed by one of the Brothers. We got there early and it filled up quickly adding to the atmosphere. Very good service.

Visited for dinner. The food, at best, is average. I wouldn't call this authentic Italian. Rather, it's more Italian-American. Sauce is average - not the most flavorful, and put on many of the dishes. Salads are overly dressed in not the best quality dressings, desserts are not authentic whatsoever (Creme Brulee, while tasty, is more like pudding...Tiramisu with non-traditional alcohol... More

A great go-to restaurant. Very small, limited seating but always able to wait it out at the bar which has great wine choices and friendly staff. The owner is often there as well. Food is delicious every time! Choose the Veal Picata! It's the very best on the menu.

This is a small Italian restaurant with great food. They have a few tables outside on the front porch with misters if the weather is hot. Good wine too!

The neat nook of a place is small and a bit loud but the food is worth it. Friends and locals all meet up there. Good wines and great italian food. Worth the wait if there happens to be a line.
