The restaurant was nearly full on a Wednesday evening. We sat at the bar. The service was great and the food was even better. Drinks were excellent and the price was good.

If you are anywhere near Sandusky, OH you must stop at this restaurant for dinner. It has got to be the best Italian food outside of Italy. And the service is first rate too.

We have been coming here a long time and it is always great. Count on portions being enough to have leftovers the next day. True Italian spirit throughout.

Took a chance on this place the night before going to Cedar Point. We split a caprese salad and the Pasta Mafia. By far the best Italian food I've ever eaten.

We've had parties there where we had the basement bar to ourselves, that's another option though I don't know the cost.
