Like the restaurant very much and enjoy their pastas made with real fresh ingredients and spices that just explode in one's mouth. Great atmosphere with a New York type of buzz.

Six of us gathered for dinner. The bread they put on the table was almost stale and tasteless. The olive oil and garlic was good as well as the dip, but the slices of eggplant were unchewable. The meal was mediocre, and way overpriced. We ordered the steaks which are very pricey and there was nothing special about. Would not... More

Ordered a large Sicilian pie made with marinara sauce. It was so tasty - that I've ordered it again. Their website was easy to use for ordering. Delivery was punctual. Will try them again for other orders.

Always solid meal feel like I am in Italy, bartenders are awesome especially Dee. The specials are fantastic and the owners will make you feel at home. Worth every dollar. If you need a few extra bucks bet the owner in a round a golf Billy Dyer

Bustling bar on any day, full at 5 PM. Couples, business connections and single friends chatting it up while noshing on assorted meatballs and other appetizer treasures. Seated with a full view of neatly placed tables and very attentive staff, guests old and young appeared gastronomicly content. No request was unattended. Mindful the dining room crowd had only just begun,... More

I've dined in this Restaurant at least 10 times. Usually when the Waiters offer their Steaks, they kindly disclose the prices. On a recent visit, the Waiter opted to remain silent on Steak prices. One of my companions ordered a Rib Eye on the Bone. He enjoyed the Steak. He did NOT enjoy the $75 Price Tag when the Check... More
