Had a couple of farewell luncheons and were extremely pleased. Service was good, not rushed. Food was very good and the overall quality over cost was also very good. Wouldn't hesitate going back for an evening dinner with my wife and family.

We expected a little better from the reviews, but it was very typical Long Island Italian. Don't need to come here again. Plus, the floors under the tables and the bathroom were filthy!
