We went early on a Friday evening -- 5:30 -- without a reservation. There were no tables inside, but we were welcomed to sit outside or in the bar. We selected a table outside, and the initial waiter was prompt in taking our drink order and then our meal order. Things went downhill after there. When our food was brought... More

Service was efficient and engaging. Our server really listened to our desires and made suggestions to improve our experience. Two of ordered veal dishes which were wonderful,... More

We mad reservation for a large party of 12. When we arrive they did not have our reservation, the hostess and owner accommodated us with an outside table. The server was outstanding handling out table of 12 along with 4 other tables inside. Everyone enjoyed there meals, the food was great! Once again, the waitress was outstanding!

First 50% off wine by bottle before 6:30 with an above average wine list fro a neighborhood Italian. Broad selection of well prepared food. Very relaxing atmosphere even at height of season in Naples. A bit off the beaten track but still close to US 41. try it

Met friends in bar area for Happy Hour appetizers and drinks. Need to get there by 4:30 to get a table or spot at the bar. The few booths they have were already taken.

Service is always slow, and they are stingy. There's no real lunch menu. I ordered soup, which is supposed to come with garlic rolls and had to ask for them. I asked for a soda to go and she wanted to charge me for it. Didn't I just pay to eat there?! So I said forget it. If you want... More

Went there on a Friday night recently. In a plaza, so parking was easy. Greeted by a friendly hostess and immediately sat down. Service was excellent. Got fried calimari, which was decent. For my entree, I got veal parm. The sauce was excellent, the veal and pasta were good. Portion was kind of small. Felt it was a bit pricey... More

We had a late lunch. Garlic rolls are made on site and real Italian garlic taste. I had minestrone soup loaded with vegetables. Excellent. My wife had an eggplant Parmesan sandwich. House made bread. My wife is Italian and very picky about her eggplant. She loved it! Service was not an issue. Highly recommended.
