The food was OK...not great. If you don't mind screaming across your table the place isn't bad. Very loud atmosphere and the food wasn't stellar but definitely better than cooking if you don't mind spending that much money for that crazy atmosphere.

I compare this restaurant to a very attractive woman that you over spent your money on just to find out she's sour! Extremely nice on the inside and has all the qualitys to become a great restaurant but lack the taste in food. Everything on my plate taste like greens except the sausage. The bar here is very loud and... More

We had an early dinner on a Tuesday night and were the only ones in the dining room. The bar was crowded and noisy, but didn't detract from our experience. The dining room was a bit chilly. The lighting was cozily dim. If you sit in the booths lining the wall, you sink down. Seems time for new padding. We... More

Lots of really cool peeps...locals too. The staff is so helpful/congenial. The pizza is first class, and no garlic is NOT a problem. Plenty of tables so the wait is very small.

Coming back from North Haven late one night we decided to stop into this restaurant as we had been at the Vazzy's in Monroe. Very disappointing evening. The dining room that we were taken to was dirty, chairs were uncomfortable and table was rickety. I felt like I was in a bar instead orf a restaurant. My husband and I... More

We loaded up with some of their dishes to cater a large group. Chicken Marsala, Calamari, Meatballs, Lasagna. All was excellent. Looking forward to stopping here for a meal sometime!

Very pleasant Italian restaurant with a good variety on the menu. Outdoor sitting is quiet and relaxing. The service is very good and the food excellent. The waitresses were very pleasant.

My first visit was taking my parents there for their anniversary (four of us in the party). Everyone was very happy with their meals. For appetizers we had (collectively) Pasta Fagioli soup, Tomato & Mozzarella salad, and Bruschetta. I had some of each and aside from tomatoes being out of season I was happy with all of them. Not sure... More
