If you visit Jersey City you must have a meal at this place. It has that old time gangster feel and the people who come here really dress for the occasion. This is not only a venue for an exceptional meal but also people watching entertainment. You need to book on weekends or you will have to join the queue down the street. The meals are mostly, not prepared the traditional way you would expect but they are nevertheless still very good. The Halibut, Spinach and Mushroom combination is really good. The waiter was very attentive and provided service of a high standard. This is the place to find really good Italian food.

Decided to give this restaurant a try and i am so glad. It is a little off the beaten path,but worth the drive. It reminds me of old school Italian. The service and food was excellent. The lobster ravioli was amazing and very reasonably price.

From the outside you would never guess this was such a nice restaurant. We tried their meatballs since they were profiled in Inside jersey magazine & they were truly delicious! Everything that we had was great - fish, pasta, salad & bread. Nice wine selection too. Very attentive & pleasant service. Definitely a place that I will venture to again when I am in the area.

Very good food. The atmosphere was a bit weird like in a movie: a lot of italian waitresses looking a little maffia-like and healthy luxureous foods and wines.
