We used to frequent this restaurant quite often years ago but it became so difficult to get a table we started going other places. Decided to try again but was disappointed.

There are many Italian restaurants in my town and Regina Margherita is truly the best. It is genuine authentic Italian cooking as the cook and owner, Nicola, is from Italy.

This is a BYOB restaurant. The food is absolutely amazing and the pastries are to die for!! Small, cozy atmosphere..do yourself a favor and make a reservation. The staff is the best and the owner is the best guy..he treats his customers very well. If you are looking for a great place then you need to try it! Don't forget... More
