Served by the owner, Dennis and he did a great job! Very friendly, made to feel at home. Food was excellent. We had the Garlic bread and mozerella to start (delicious!) Eggplant parm was also excellent as was the pignoli meatballs. looking for ward to coming back!

This is a small family owned restaurant. We do not eat at chains when traveling and decided to give it a try. The dishes were generous but they were served to us at room temperature. The pasta carbonara had too much garlic. The lasagna and baked spaghetti was good. The server was nice but seemed disorganized.

... easily one of the best Italian restaurants I've ever been to. And what's up with this town and adorable waiters? Amazing food, fantastic wine, and killer desserts. Make a reservation and dive in here. Perfect date night, as well. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Nice atmosphere, homemade pasta, large servings enough for 2 to split, meatballs are delicious, desserts also large enough for 2 to split. We will definitely be going back often, Owner Italian

Our first visit here started rough. We were seated promptly but without menus. Our friend decided to just grab some after waiting for a few minutes. Server took a good 10 minutes to even greet us. Another 10 minutes for water and drinks. Being a server myself, I found this to be unacceptable. That being said - food was great.... More

My husband loved his putanesca dish. Child had the lasagna, as one of the cheeses they use is ricotta salata it had a tangy taste she didn't care for. Not a problem, my yummy eggplant parmesan had a hearty pasta portion (though more sauce would have been good), she shared that with me (lasagne taken home). The small salads were... More

Made my first reservation for a party of nine and was accommodated as though we'd been life-long customers. There was only one chef and one server that night and although we did have to wait a bit longer for our meals it was well worth it. The server tried his best to keep up and we observed how hard he...

We went here for a retired professional group reunion and were pretty much underwhelmed and disappointed. Portions were small and over priced. It was a lunch group of 6 persons, not 15 or 20, and the single server was unable to handle our needs. There were only a handful of other customers at 2 tables during lunch as well. Back... More

This place seriously has the best meatballs I have ever had. Get the pignoli meatball (they are more expensive and worth every penny). We got gluten free pasta (even though the meatballs are not) and it was great although they did not tell us it would be $4 more per plate. Unexpected but not a game changer. The red meat... More
