Have long been a fan of their Atlantic Ave restaurant and so happy to have one in my neighborhood. Dinner for 4 was very good. I think they may be working some kinks out though overall was a good experience. Two of us had the pounded veal chop which was very good. One person had the lamb chops and said... More

In Virginia Beach for business and staying at the Springhill Suites across the street. I knew the restaurant as pricey but my curiosity was awoken with the great reviews that this establishment has, along with the benefit of a Groupon that I purchased. I have to say that my experience was a total disappointment - starting with a $7.00 caesar... More

We were in VA Beach for USCAA XC Nationals and I wanted to bring our crew to a nice Italian restaurant on our last evening. I believe we arrived ahead of the dinner crowd and calling ahead seemed a good move. We were seated quickly and service was prompt and professional throughout. Our gluten free as well as vegetarians all... More

We had dinner at their new Great Neck location and it was very good. The flounder special was terrific as was the shrimp scallop stuff. The service was attentive, albeit a tad slow due to the Friday nite crowds. For a very busy restaurant, it was surprisingly well managed and the food was great.

Great service and warm atmosphere. Dined here in Aug 2016 with family friends. Entire group enjoyed dishes from their menu. Prices are little on the high end but you get what you pay for! We were disappointed that they are closed for lunch when we tried to dine again the next day.

Went to this restaurant after reading the good reviews on tripadvisor. It was on a Sunday and it was buy one dinner and get one free. We had the zucchini fritti for appetizer, wonderful salads, entrees of pasta with salmon, fresh baked bread and tiramisu. The service was fantastic and it has a great atmosphere. Thank you tripadvisor.

Real Italian food, finally! Try "zucchini fritti"; when a restaurant is able to prepare the simple plait like this in the proper way, means they are good

I've been here before and had an outstanding meal so I was looking forward to repeating the experience and came away with average. It was a Tuesday night but the place was full and the meal was good but something lacked. I will come back again to a better experience the next time I'm in VB for sure.

Ambiance, service (including valet parking) and especially the food make this a most enjoyable experience. Wanted a good veal meal and with 6+ choices was not disappointed. Napoleon for dessert was super, super, super! Did I say the Napoleon was super?
