This is one of the best Italian restaurants I have eaten at. The food is great, especially their ravioli and their spaghetti with meatballs. Love the salad and the rolls. The servers are friendly and knowledgeable about the food. They make great suggestions when you...More

Service was friendly ok but had to ask for napkins, more ice, another drink, the check. The best part was the dinner salad, it was simple but delicious and the garlic rolls. The food was good, we each ordered the combination of 3. It would...More

We had the Romano combo and eggplant parmesan. The Romano was a ravioli and a canneloni swimming in a bowl full of sauce. Not much substance, just sauce. The eggplant did not have a good flavor and the side of spaghetti was about as flavorful...More

In the 4-5 times I've been here, I've never had a bad meal. You'll wait a bit at dinner, but the food is worth the wait. Great salad and garlic bread, and a fun atmosphere.

Hot garlic rolls...lathered in butter and fresh garlic are brought with every meal! Olive Garden, amerigos, maggianos...got nothing on this place! This is real authentic homemade Italian food you crave on those rainy days... Try it and you will be back!

This is one of our favorite restaurants in general and Italian restaurants specifically. It has a small, homey atmosphere that sets it apart from the chain Italian restaurants. The food is very good and, again, seems more authentic than the chains. Service is good, and...More

Best Italian food ever. Garlic rolls, fresh salad, and your meal will always be hot and very good. Service can be spotty 30% of the time, but you will forget about it after you eat.

This was an excellent choice for our family's New Years Celebration. The restaurant is small so our group of 13 sitting together was a bit of a stretch but they worked it out for us. The food and service was amazing and the joint filled...More
