An old style family run Italian restaurant that you just do not see anymore. Food is very good southern Italian with huge portions. It serves the biggest calzone that I have ever seen. Cannoli is especially good. Service is wonderful with experienced waitresses and hostesses...More

Nice, Italian family run business. The fried calamari was light and crisp, the house salad had a variety of vegetables (not just iceberg lettuce), garlic bread was ok. My husband loved the Zuppa di Mare Trapanese; nice variety of fresh, flavorful seafood. The eggplant parmesan...More

I've eaten here many times and have never had a bad meal. I regularly bring clients here and did so again today. I recommend any pasta dish, the Pollo de Stefano is outstanding, and the Stromboli and Calzone are also great.

Stopped in with our family for dinner. We were able to get seated right of way. Service was great and the waitress was friendly. All the food we ordered was delicious. I really enjoyed the veal with a side of fettuccine Alfredo. The portions are...More
