Very original to the Arthur Avenue experience. So your searching for that authentic Italian restaurant that will offer you a very unique menu. A menu makes you feel you have been transported to Naples Italy but is very much a place that gives Arthur Avenue its reputation of "Little Italy in the Bronx" Your search is over. Try the Octopus...

Very good homestyle food in the heart of Arthur Avenue. Appetizers (Octopus special and eggplant rollatini) were great as were the entrees. All four of us ordered the specials and loved them all. Reasonably priced wine list as well.

As with my most recent post, I am writing this directly to the owners of the restaurant. Great service, menu, food and a nice decor. I actually want to apologise for laughing while the specials were being read out but its funny when your gf only eats vegatarian and watching her pretending to be interested in the seafood specials!

Wonderful dinner last night (November 15, 2016) in this small restaurant, in the middle of Arthur Avenue's "strip", that we had never been to before. My friend liked the description of a couple of the menu items so we decided to try it despite there being nobody else inside. The service was quite good. The temptation of a waiter might... More

Stayed next door in the Opera House Hotel whose desk clerk recommended it. Also read up on trip advisor. It was disconcerting at first: small sitting area which doesn't look much. Seating was cramped. However food was excellent and the margaritas immense. Gets my full vote and we will go back.

Had lunch here this week and the food was perfect! Reminded me of my grandmas Italian cooking. That is a high compliment! I'm glad the portions are not excessive. Everything was delicious and the service was great.

Stopped here after going to the NY Botanical gardens. Small restaurant but worth the trip. Food was great, service fantastic and reasonable prices. Had the shrimp and pasta. Huge and a lot. Sauces didn't over power the food. Parking tough but go to the end of Arthur Ave.

Stopped in for dinner due to our favorite restaurant being closed for vacation. Portions are small and quality is average for the area. Make sure you are specific on your order. They will bring everything you mention. Not nice but hey what the heck you'll eat it anyway. Diner portions are also small so forget sharing or even wanting to... More

Going to the Yankee game? If they win - this place is like the icing on the cake. If they lose (and they lose a lot) this is the perfect place to "eat your sorrows." From the fantastic clams to the specials to the double espresso & desert, you are going to love this place. And the service was super.
