Driving by, just decided to give it a try. Very glad we did. You order at the counter and they bring the food out. Great Italian coffee (you pay by the cup, but worth it.) I loved the chicken parmesan and the breads are great.

This is a great family owned and operated restaurant with original family recipes.
Had a Frittella for the first time and it was really delicious. My buddies each had something different and even as picky as they are they all said it was some of the best Italian they ever had.

First time visit to this Italian restaurant. Based on the experience, it will be the last. The lunch special was supposed to be beef cannelloni. Eggplant parmesan was also ordered. When the cannelloni was served, the first comment was "really flavorful sauce" soon followed by, "where's the beef? There's no meat in this." Since the beef cannelloni is one of their signature dishes, we wondered if the wrong dish had been served. The waiter came over, looked at the dish and commented that it had spinach in it. He left, and returned to say the owner would comp the dish.
Meanwhile, the eggplant parmesan was very good, and especially hot from the oven.
The owner came over and explained that the cannelloni was not a beef dish, like steak, (we certainly didn't expect steak) and the "dark pieces" were beef. Since the dark pieces were very dark green and limp, it had to be spinach.
We didn't expect a free meal, but a simple apology would have been nice. We had arrived at 1:30. They serve lunch until 2:00. So perhaps they had run out of the beef cannelloni and served one filled with spinach.
We definitely won't be returning.

Heard about this place from a Facebook group of people who used to live in Brindisi Italy. This was supposed to be the place to find a Frittella just like the ones in Italy. Went in with some hesitation. But it truly was exactly like I remembered. So hot and delicious and the flavor profile was exactly the same. My mother and I hummed the whole time we were eating. The staff was all very friendly and knowledgeable about their food options. If you ever want a taste of Brindisi Italy, this is the place to go!
