I was truly disappointed in this dining experience. The service, the food, the prices were all a disappointment. It took over one hour for us to be served our main course. The waitresses were not particularly helpful, and they appeared frazzled. Out of the 4 dinners that were ordered at our table, only one was remotely worth the price. I... More

Authentic Sicilian. Great atmosphere - wife greets every table and and husband leads kitchen and we are told often comes out to play the Baby Grand (not this night). We shared a tasty and perfectly cooked pasta dish with mushroom bolognese. Had beef stew since I brought a hearty wine and beef melted in mouth. Friends had veal scaloppini which... More

Friends took here for dinner and we could not have been more surprised at a great restaurant this is. We have been living in Somerset county for over 20 years and have been through Somerville so many times and never knew this restaurant existed. The bulk of the restaurants in town are near the court house and heading west on... More

It's easy to overlook this byob restaurant when traveling on East Main Street -- there is parking at the rear of the building as well as side street parking. It was great to be greeted by the owner's wife who welcomed us and stopped by a couple times during dinner. Their bruschetta was tasty. Even more flavorful were their entrees.... More

Wow, this is a great find! Truly, excellent Sicilian cuisine with fine ingredients in a beautiful warm decor and served by careful and attentive staff. The result was clear: we liked it and we cleaned the plates :). Moscardini amurati and Caserece alla Luciana were my choices while my spouse chose the Gamberetti con le Verze followed by Saltimbocca di... More

Took our friends who came to visit from San Francisco. They wanted an authentic Italian restaurant so we were highly recommended to come here. None of us were disappointed. The moment we walked in the door, we were greeted by the owner. She introduced herself to a each of us, escorted us to our table, and stayed to chat. We... More

I cannot say enough of this amazing little gem. I was greeted at the door by my friendly host and shown to a nice quiet table. The appetizer set me up for what I knew was to be a wonderful experience. I had the white fish fillet with caramelized onions and vinegar; a wonderful combination! I then had the scaloppine... More
