If you enjoy well prepared Italian food, this restaurant is for you. Marcello is welcoming and his staff is helpful, professional and attentive. You will always have a good meal here.

a very good choice in the area - always fresh food - professional and friendly service - good value for price paid. One owner is usually on premises and other owner is in the kitchen so the quality is always there!!!

Not may left of these charming old style family Italian restaurants especially where the owners are really Italian and one partner is in the kitchen and the other, (Marcello) "in the front of the house". We were told by the owners he and his partner of thirty years still employ some of the original employees as well. Great southern style... More

This is a lucky find in Little Neck. If you go twice you will be welcomed back as if you married into the family. The food is excellent and more important the quality of the food never wavers (not an easy feat if you ask restaurant managers) The menu is classic as is the service. Given all of this excellence,...
