The personnel is Italian for the most part and the food is authentic and delicious. It is very loud but also fun and lively. The stuffed mozzarella is excellent as is the Gnocchi Bolognese. Be prepared for not getting much of a cell signal.

I went about a week ago and saw one of my favorite waiters, K. He introduced me to another favorite waiter of mine Marian. Marian is a great man who should be famous. He was great and awesome.

This is a quality restaurant with true Italian cuisine - not "nouvelle" - the owners are there, the service is excellent, reservations required, they treat everyone well. I've read some of the reviews that seem to harp on "cash only" - it is "cash only"...More
