The meal was great but when I was there the service was a little slow. Talking to the maître d they were not prepared for the place to be packed. But the waitress and servers were very helpful and made the time go by easily. The capers was very good and so was the Fra Diavolo was extremely good.

Salad was tiny. My chicken parm was not good...like frozen, store bought. I could do a better job myself, and I don't ever cook dinner. Pasta and sauce was not terrible, but not enough to rescue the rest of the meal. My girlfriend's seafood was awful, overcooked. The service was good, but again, not enough to redeem a mediocre, overpriced... More

We dined there with friends after several recommendations, we were not disappointed. Everything was excellent! Bread, salad, entrée! Food could have a little warmer and they ran out of Tiramisu. Definitely going back

Excellent as usual! Calamari to die for, old world charm and Kelin the waiter is above expectation! The Osso Bucco is my favorite, but then again I have never had a bad meal!

There was a party of four this evening and we bought a bottle of wine to go along with our meal. The appetizers were fried calamari and bruscetta. The calamari... More

We started with cocktails and then wine with dinner. I had a fine veal dish and ice cream for desert. We relaxed and spent a couple of hours enjoying our dinner.

Lovely place on the highway in Lenox. Has been here for over 20 year, which is a testimonial right there! Decor is charming, sort of old world charm, nothing fancy or intrusive. Service was excellent. Food was delicious. Not very expensive, certainly very much worth the price. This place is "a keeper". We will be back, for sure.

We made a reservation but the owner, did not have enough waitstaff to handle the Monday night meal. Although the waiter was efficiently, NOONE could have handled his assignment! It detracted from our meal, evening! A shame as we wanted this to be a winning restaurant!
