Get a grip. This is so not a good Italian restaurant. This may have been good at some point but our experience tonight was like a bad "B" movie. Dario the chef owner was drunk instead of paying attention to his kitchen. The roach crawling on the bar was met with no interest from the staff. The Lasagna, was cold,... More

A little out of the way next to a shopping center but well worth the trip. Food was excellent, not just Italian but great seafood also.Tuna steak was perfect, rare and ample portion (we took half home).Celebrated a birthday and was treated to Italian Rum Cake and a song !! Drinks were good too !!

The restaurant is a wonderful place for a great Italian family dinner. The Service was great with several visits from the Chef to ensure a great family dining experience. Now the food. The food was simply amazing! My choice was the Paella. The Paella was a Saffron Risotto with Shrimp, Chicken, Sausages, and Calamari. I also got tastes of the... More

As always, Chef Dario and Alicia made our evening out "an event." From the wonderful wine education from Chef Dario to the delicious triple tail dinner and fantastic staff & other friendly patrons, it was a fantastic evening. Also, welcome to new bartender Lacey! Thanks again for a wonderful evening.

We enjoyed a Birthday celebration for 4 adults and enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. The waiter should have written things down as he forgot to serve our salads that we ordered but to make up his mistake he served us all a shot of some liquior. All in all we had a great time and left satisfied.

I generally don't comment this way about restaurants, particularly since I owned an Italian restaurant and bar for 20 years in the Philadelphia area. It started off well, free parking spot right by front door, that should have told me something! We were seated promptly and I was delighted to see linen napkins and clothes, however it was down a...

Nice place. Crowd was having a nice time. Drinks were so so. Liver pate was the best ever. But the entrees were pretty much tasteless. When we sat down we were sure we would be back. When we left we weren't too sure.

By word of mouth I heard about this place. Everything was great. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu. Suggested a number of different items & we tried a variety of things. The mussels in a white sauce were superb. Asked for another loaf of bread to soak up the incredible flavor of the sauce over the mussels. Lamb... More
