I've been to this restaurant before and have been satisfied. I took a friend there on Monday evening 3/27. The service was good but the food and coffee disappointing.

If you enjoy well prepared Italian food, this restaurant is for you. Marcello is welcoming and his staff is helpful, professional and attentive. You will always have a good meal here.

a very good choice in the area - always fresh food - professional and friendly service - good value for price paid. One owner is usually on premises and other owner is in the kitchen so the quality is always there!!!

Not may left of these charming old style family Italian restaurants especially where the owners are really Italian and one partner is in the kitchen and the other, (Marcello) "in the front of the house". We were told by the owners he and his partner of thirty years still employ some of the original employees as well. Great southern style... More

food is really good in this place, the staff is very friendly and Marcello is a great host. make sure to try a limoncello after your meal, that liquor is an Italian must.
