Went for dinner there on Superball Sunday. The atmosphere is very pretty, with dim lighting but enough to read the menu and the acoustics were good so that you were able to carry on a conversation without having to strain to hear the other person.

A nice local Italian Restaurant serving very good food, great prices and generous portions. When crowded the noise level is high, due to no carpet or drapes to absorb the sounds. It's a BYOB and the waiters are very accommodating and the service is terrific. There's no rush to "turn the tables" and the atmosphere is very comfortable. Parking is... More

Delicious Italian food and great prices! Love the price fix menu before 6:00 pm - great variety of entrees and appetizers and it includes dessert too!! Bring your own is always a plus and service is great. Would go here every week if I could! You won't be disappointed.

Everyone enjoyed their meals...then there was the deserts and coffee....very... More

We usually love this place. The last time I left it a five star rating. It is that good. I live in California, and every time I'm in New Jersey I have to come here. But I have to say, something happened this time. First of all this Spanish guy in a suit that was too big for him is... More

First time without our kids on Easter. My husband and I decided to go out for dinner instead of me cooking. This place was recommended by people that live in this town. We really enjoyed the appetizers and the meal of chicken parmesan and pasta penne was very delicious. Considering the place was fully booked the service was very good.... More

Place looks real Italian . Love the look. Very clean and the service is outstanding. The food is good for the money . They never rush you. Better to make a reservation or you will have a wait on the weekend.
