Having lived on the North Shore for years we have always meant to go here. We finally did and it's too bad we took so long as it is fantastic. We will be regulars from now on

Just the longevity of this little gem on North Shore speaks for it self. We went there last Friday to celebrate my birthday and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is small and cosy, with white table cloth and napkins, candle lit tables, nice for romantic dinner. We each had a appetizer and main, all nice prepared and presented. The... More

We had a party of eight on New Years Eve. There was fixed 4 course menu for dinner with a choice of veal, venison or sea bass for the mains. I was a little disappointed there was not an Italian selection, since it's supposed to be an Italian restaurant. The starters were nice enough, I had the smoked salmon and... More

I had driven by this sight many times and never ate there. Well I was pleasantly surprised by the great service and attentive staff, but I was even more pleased with the quality of the food.

Small restaurant, not the fanciest but food was excellent. It was someone's birthday while we were there and the owner sang happy birthday in opera. It was little scary as it was loud and a little wierd but she had a good voice. Not sure it was the best thing to do at a restaurant

I got the linguine and clams but the clams were already out of the shell so maybe they were from a jar and not fresh. I order this dish a lot at various restaurants and usually it is served with the clams still in the shell. Service was great and we had the place to ourselves, maybe because it was... More

We had dinner here and wow! Lovely waiters although they did seem to have more time for older couples. Small restaurant, we sat outside as it was a nice day, our table was a bit dirty with insects and leaves but as you look above you the patio is covered by grape vines that are physically growing grapes! These guys... More
