At first taste of the mushroom based pasta dish, we felt we had to recheck the address of the restaurant to be sure we weren’t in Rome. In fact, Marco, the owner, is from Italy and composes his menu to reflect the flavors of his...More

First time there. Food and service excellent. Quiet atmosphere so you can hear each other speak. Excellent staff. They have two rooms so it could be a very good place for parties.

I go here frequently, especially when I have a need for some good pasta. They make a broccoli rabe and sausage pasta that is out of this world. Everything is home made, the staff are great and the prices are reasonable. What's not to love?

I hadn't eaten at this restaurant in over a year. It used to be good but this last visit was not. Portions are very tiny and fairly tasteless. The back room is extremely noisy. Service was OK but I won't be going back very disappointing.
