We were visiting for a soccer tournament and searched Trip Advisor for a recommendation. What a great choice! Food was excellent. We had Sea Bass Risotto, Seafood Pasta and Chicken Pasta. Everything was great. Wine was good and reasonable. Waiter was very attentive. I would highly recommend and go back again and again.

Eat here for dinner frequently. The food is delicious and the service staff is very good. We've never had a bad meal here. All the different menu items we've tried have been good and plentiful. The pizza is very good. The atmosphere is nice with a separate bar area and sidewalk dining area when the weather is nice.

Were were a little amazed by the relatively inexpensive menu items here. We had several and they were all delicious. This place is well worth the trip. Lots of family here with little kids. Such fun!

It's authentic - no franchise or chain feel. It's friendly and unpretentious while nicely decorated. It puts its neighborhood warmth out there and you are just yourself. Drinks are better than decent and the menu is filling, satisfying and nicely prepared. There are too few places like this today and we're lucky to have it in the hood.

We had a party of 6, including 2 children. We went here on a Sunday evening for dinner. We were seated after a wait of about 10 minutes. This was not bad, considering we had no reservations and we were a party of 6. They had no problem pushing 2 tables together to accommodate us. Our menus arrived immediately and... More
