What a great authentic meal we enjoyed in this quaint, nicely decorated restaurant. Our local friends introduced us to the place for dinner and it was great. We were early enough to enjoy $5 happy-hour martinis before dinner. They have a traditional Italian menu and offer several chef specials each night. It is a nice place for dinner with friends...

If you want good food and want absolutely no dinner conversation this is the place to go. The exposed brick walls & arched brick doorways are beautiful & you feel like you are in Italy. The acoustics in this place make it virtually impossible to carry on a dinner conversation unless you don't mind having the diners next to you... More

Great food, great portions and great service (Hi Peter! :-) ) It is a popular location so keep that in mind when planning to go their during holidays or around special events. It is worth the wait. Their pork osso bucco (mmmmmm...), chicken piccata, lasagna and chicken parmigiana will delight.

Great menu, fresh food, nice wine list. The appetizers - Bruschetta is the best ever, peppers & sausage great! Nightly specials, build your own pasta and full range of entrees. Always crowded on the weekends - great friendly local place would be difficult to find a better place - Love It!
