Salad special (with a blueberry goat cheese) was tasty! The mozzarella, plum tomato sauce atop the breaded chicken were seasoned and cooked perfectly -- made me think of a cheese pizza with chicken in lieu of a crust. While I loved the chicken (that was...More

Went on a Saturday a few weeks ago. The people there were very nice, the place was very empty so we got special attention I get. They are certainly not rushing you here. It is a nicer place and our meal took close to 2...More

I went twice to this restaurant in June, 2017. Restaurant is very popular simply because of serving great fresh italian food. Cakes were delicious. I would recommend to visit it.

Very nice little Italian restaurant, lighting, decoration and atmosphere are all very good, except I ordered the Shrimp Scampi and the shrimps are way over cooked.

Really authentic southern Italian cuisine. All dishes were made and served with obvious love and pride. From the starters (OMG the fired shrimp all but floated off the plate) all the way through an almost perfect cannoli (there is no perfect one!) and a brilliant...More

Pleasant enough welcome. Oysters lacked flavour, not sure about putting smoked salmon on them. Scaloppine with mushrooms and lobster meat nice enough though the lobster added little (except expense!). Claggy cheescake. Overall not actively bad, but not inspiring. Good wine list for a business dinner,...More
