We go here for special occasions, after all it is pricey! The good thing is that the food is legit, true and authentic flavors. Love the chicken parmesan. What top our visit was meeting Manuel and having him tell us his life stories.

The food was good, but they need better ventilation I couldn't even enjoy the food because I could not breathe and when I left my clothes smelled.

Absolutely delicious, with a lovely, quaint atmosphere. They also have an extensive wine menu! I would definitely visit here again.

My husband and I went for our anniversary and were greeted by owner Manuel who was charming. The wine list was more than adequate and reasonably priced. My husband ordered a pasta lamb specialty that he enjoyed. The grouper special that I ordered was awesome. We shared pear purses which were great. Service was good but ventilation of open concept...

Great evening, start to finish. The staff were gracious and knowledgeable. Ben was helpful navigating their extensive wine list. Every course of our meal was fresh & flavorful. We had a romantic table for two. Including outdoor seating, they can only seat about 40 people, so call for a reservation. Owner Manuel show old-school class by greeting and thanking all... More

So glad I read TA and made a reservation. We had a show to see and really did not have enough time to really enjoy the full ambiance of our visit. Our waiter, Chris was excellent, his recommendations were spot on. The food was superb, it really did feel like we were back in Little Italy enjoying a great meal.... More

Beautifully prepared, presented and delicious meal. Caesar salad was large with crispy Romaine lettuce and nice crispy chunky croutons. Pasta with pesto and shrimp (one of the specials that night) was excellent...so was my friend's steak and another friend's pasta. They also enjoyed the snails. No loud noisy corny music. Excellent wait staff. Be sure to make a reservation. What's... More

Holy smokes folks. Got right in excellent service from entire team. Extensive wine list, proper red wine crystal. Started with poached pear purses, outstanding. The on to lobster ravioli, used bread to soak up the plate. One of the best experiences ever. Manuel came by to thank me for dining here, what a wonderful gesture.

The biggest compliment I can give this place is that it feels like one of those nice quaint, owner run restaurants that you would find in a major city. Very good Italian fare, with an engaged team that seems like they have been there a while. They have been very willing to accommodate my custom (and sometimes odd) requests. The... More
