My wife and I had an appointment in the area and wanted a place for dinner before. We selected this place mainly based on its proximity and the reviews. We were not let down. The lot had ample parking. We were greeted when we entered and were promptly seated. The service was great, very quick and efficient. The server handled... More

This is the only place that I feel safe eating out. They have a regular menu and a gluten free menu. My husband eats from the regular menu and loves the food which is always well presented and delicious. I eat from the gluten free menu which provides a large verity of choices. I had the filet mignon the other... More

We've been going here for nearly 30 years. Always a great meal. We have dined here as as just the 2 of us, with our family and booked a few private parties. It's great to have a reliable restaurant in our neighborhood. Worth the trip from anywhere

Went here without reservation on a Wednesday night. The staff welcomed us, made us a table and we're very friendly, despite that fact that they were busy. Dinner for 6 of us was $129.00. My wife had the gnocchi, and I wanted to try the lasagna, and eggplant and they were very accommodating and gave me a special dish which... More

We went there the other night for my girlfriends birthday. The place was crowded at 7:30 when we got there on a Friday night. We had reservations and waited less than 5 minutes for our table. I ordered a bottle of chianti for $30 and we ordered the stuffed artichoke app which was delicious. I ordered venison tenderloin and she... More

I recently ate here after a 4 year hiatus. I have gluten allergies and was very annoyed that they charged an extra $2 for GF dishes. I found that absurd considering the owner or the daughter has an issue (Celiac ?) I gave it another try this past winter and am glad that I did. The food was really quite... More

We've enjoyed this superb Italian restaurant as a couple, in parties of four and six, excellent birthday parties for 60, repasts for 50 and my daughter enjoyed a delightful shower her. It is difficult to name a favorite since they do such a tasty presentation on all their dishes. Veal Sorrentino does entice me perhaps the most frequently. The service... More

We went with a large group of friends and family and had a 7 course meal. We enjoyed appetizers, fresh bread, salads, main course of chicken parmesan, salmon, and ice cream. I may be missing something but we had so much food and it was good! I don't remember the waitress name but she was blonde and fit. She was... More
