This is not an Italian restaurant. The name is Italian but the staff and cooks are not. The pizzas are boring. So is the pasta. Lots of better places to eat. Way to expensive compared to the quality.

We really only had one pizza (John's Special), so rating is rather narrow. However, the service was good, and the pizza we had was delicious, so I can find no reason to rate them down in any way... hence 5 stars...

We ate here this morning and it was absolutely amazing! We had the ravioli and the chefs special for the pizza and it was so incredible. I wish they shipped to Australia ;) Wonderful service and cosy place. Thank you!

We started by splitting an antipasto salad ($14) which was very good and large enough to share with up to 3 people. Chicken Marsala ($16) was tasty with very generous portions. I had a half-pizza Classica with their famous original thin crust. Flavor was good;...More

Stopped in for a quick Friday night dinner. Had the mixed green salad with UNBELIEVABLE house dressing. Wish they sold it. And, the pepperoni pizza made this a heavenly meal. Nice service, quaint (think Gangster like) dining room bespoke of NYC days gone by. Excellent!

Unassuming little Italian cafe. Pizzas were good and staff was very friendly and helpful. A nice little surprise.
