I understand they are being allergy friendly by doing nutless pesto but it's not pesto, its a butter and cream sauce. The quality/quantity to price ratio in comparison to their competitors is bad.

I hesitate to write a review because I don't want this place too busy for us.....so, it's bitter-sweet. In short......It was amazing! Loub (sorry If I got it wrong) & Ann ( Antonetta) were fantastic. It is casual and felt like being in someone's home. The menu has some Moroccan(ish) dishes as well as great Italian dishes. I spoke with... More

You will LOVE this Ristorante. the Chef/Owner Said is just fantastic. He made us the Joey Carroll special, founded chicken, covered with egg plant and mozzarella, on top of a bed of pasta...holy cow Batman...we devoured it. Highly recommend you stop by for some authentic dining. It's a BYOB so plan ahead.

Absolutely love this place! The atmosphere, service, food, quality and price are beyond amazing. A great menu full of choices, and if you can't find something they'll customize/make you something with whatever they have! Perfect for any occasion; I've gone on dates, with my friends and with children.

Always a pleasure to dine here. The food is always great, cooked just as you like it. The server Lubna is a delight, always smiling, always happy, eager to please, always moving! Owner Said takes special pleasure in attending to each guest, asking about family members and talking about his family. It's like stopping at a neighbors house for a... More

Authentic family run joint with superb food! The place was packed with locals when we went on a Friday night. The service is slow - the way it should be. BYOB, drink, talk, enjoy!
