The service was great and everything we had was delicious. The menu is extensive and has lots of options for different diets. We had the eggplant Parmesan, a couple different pizzas (Alba and Parma), pumpkin ravioli with Gorgonzola sauce and all was delicious. It is...a smaller place, so it got busy and there was a wait a for a table. Luckily you can just go inside and get a glass of wine or a beer while you wait.More

Great restaurant with patio seating, authentic Italian cuisine, excellent service (Hi Traci!) and impressive deli.

Outrageously overpriced ! I could have flown to Italy and back with what I paid for lunch. 2 sandwiches and a salad over $70! Insane to spend over 15$ for a sandwich when I had an entree of fresh tuna for less! The sandwiches were...good. Nothing out of the ordinary. The caprese was just ok. It was supposed to be buratta with cherry tomatoes. Instead they used regular tomatoes with not a lot of flavor, jarred pesto that was not tasty at all and the buratta was hard and tasteless. Save your money and go elsewhere.More

You can absolutely appreciate the homemade flavors that come from this place. During our visit they were out of pizza which was kind of odd seeing as this is one of their signature dishes... we tried the Classic Bruchetta which was great. The tomatoes and...the bread was perfect. As a main course I had the Mezzaluna Di Zuca. The plates were beautiful! It is definitely more on the high end, price wise. I think you could get a bit more for what you were paying. Great flavors nonetheless.More

Nice food. But we'll over priced for Italian food. When it's a cheap cuisine to have. The only reason for not 5 stars

Great place to eat and shop. The food was exquisite and met all expectations. I highly recommend it. Be sure to check the hours of operation because food is not served all day.

When you're raised in a NY italian household where most of the cooking is from scratch, it's hard to find something as good as what you grew up with. This is the best italian food I've ever eaten. (Apologies to all the Nonni's out there.)...Fresh. From scratch. The real deal. Staff was lovely and attentive. Has a high end shop attached if you care to take something to go. Wine, cheese, coffee, carbs, etc. The bread, the olive oil, the pasta, the complimentary lemonciello. We ordered the pumpkin ravioli and salmon ravioli (special). Decent sized portions. Reservations fill up quickly, and outdoor seating is limited. If you don't have one, go early--like as soon as they open for dinner and you might be able to get in. Lots of people popping in for togo orders, so that's an option if you can't get a table. HIGHLY RECOMMENDMore

We had an outstanding Italian meal with some of the best lasagna and spinach ravioli we have ever eaten. The kids enjoyed wood fire pizzas and a Greek salad. Amazing cheeses, meats, wines, pastas inside their store. Highly recommend. Great service. Parking lot right outside...of the shop. Outdoor dining only. Lovely evening. We will be back again.More
