Recently we visited relatives in Ohio. They took us to their favorite local Italian restaurant in Emporium Square-not the best area but the best Italian food. We loved this cozy place. All of the dishes we ordered were prepared to perfection-real old-school Italian with the...More

The restaurant lives up to the excellent reviews. The service is warm, friendly and personal, the food is impeccably prepared, the wine list is extensive with many choices. The salad that comes with the meal is just romaine lettuce, but even here, the ingredients were...More

Thank you very much for your review. I agree that we are not the cheapest Italian restaurant to dine in. I have to tell you that most of my product is Imported from Italy. All of the cured meats are imported and of high quality....More

Good food, good service, friendly and unpretentious--don't be fooled or put off by the location--this modest restaurant in a shopping center is outstanding. The menu is simple with just a few pasta choices and 3 sauces to choose from (2 red and 1 white) and...More

We had a fabulous meal- all the boxes checked- excellent, attentive service, nice ambience and ridiculously delicious food. Good wine list, too. Everyone at the table had a veal dish and they were all wonderful as were the mussels and antipasto appetizers. It's a small...More

Don't let the setting in the strip mall fool you. This is probably the most delicious Italian food in town. We were just in Italy last month and this compares very well. It's a little pricey especially the entrees. But worth it.

Thank you Patty, I appreciate the kind words. I agree it is a little higher priced entrees, although most of the ingredients are imported from Italy. Thank you, look forward to taking great care of you the next time you visit. David Pasqualone

we were there on a Saturday evening and it was a full house so there were no gracious welcomes or anything like that. Nor were any expected. The food is very good, but the menu is quite limited. For instance, there were no fish or...More
