We had great meal here and reasonably priced. Owner is the chef and family service. Food was very tasty and came very quickly. Highly recommend this place for a cosy venue with a great atmosphere.

We were here for a family event, but the food was prepared by the usual chef and in the same kitchen. It was delicious. We had chicken Parmesan, eggplant rolatini, chicken di Alia and penne along with a wonderful salad. The chef was so nice...More

I hesitate to write a review because I don't want this place too busy for us.....so, it's bitter-sweet. In short......It was amazing! Loub (sorry If I got it wrong) & Ann ( Antonetta) were fantastic. It is casual and felt like being in someone's home....More

Nope- even on the busiest nights in summer there should not be more of a 10 or 15 minute wait. Sorry for the delayed response!
