This is a lovely spot for a cozy dinner. The food is outstanding, and the environment is clean. Noelle is an absolute doll and professional, if you are fortunate enough to get her as a server.

They have nice pasta dishes with the pasta being very well prepared. This is a classic Italian restaurant with excellent service. Street parking is available with some being free and others requiring paying a meter.

The service was impeccable. The bronzini and shrimp scampi were amazing. We even enjoyed the capaccino and desert afterwards. Located in downtown Rutherford. Nice seating. They have patio seating in the back as well.
