Pluses: Great piano player, comfortable dining room, good menu. Minuses: (1) I had to call 3 times to speak to someone about reservation. No call-back despite promise on answering machine. (2) Service very slow. Entree arrived about 1 1/2 ours after we were seated. (3) Waitress inattentive. Had to ask 3 times for bread and twice for bread refill. (4)... More

Dined here on a quiet summer evening and was able to take advantage of a before-6 early bird weekday special menu. This includes salad, entree, breads, and either tiramisu or cannoli for dessert. We both enjoyed our salmon and eggplant parmesan entrees, with nice selections from the bar. Everything was fresh and nicely prepared, linens were clean, and service was... More

Dinner on a Friday night. Was overwhelmed by the beer selection. Not what you would expect from a neighborhood Italian restaurant. Sadly, it was not a night for beer, but celebratory wine. Dinner was excellent. Shrimp scampi and Veal Marsala. Would come back for both, but really want to try out the pizza and some beers next visit. Only sore... More

We've been here twice. Last night I had the eggplant parmigiana which was very good. My husband had chicken marsala which was also good. We will return.

This is an unsung restaurant w delicious food, more than reasonable prices and large portions. Friends & I eat there often. Problem is the wait staff is poorly trained and inattentive w no bartender. They have excellent pianists on Fri. & Sat., which makes for a fun evening. I find that they a stingy w their sauces and especially the... More

I've been here several times over the past 2 years and the food never seems to disappoint. For the quality and quantity of food you get for the price I would say it's unbeatable! Chicken sorrentino and vodka rigatoni are a couple favorites. The mussels and salads are delicious as well. I never seem to understand why we are usually... More

A great experience from start to finish. I called to make arrangements for a funeral luncheon early in the week( I needed it on Friday of the same week). I called & left a message & Rose called me back quickly. Rose walked me through the menu, prices, and made the arrangements really easy. She was very pleasant & friendly.... More

Ate here on a Saturday evening and they had a live piano player. Very nice ambiance which made the food taste even better. Nice wine selections with a good bar. Menu is strong in Italian specialties and make sure to have the veal Milanese.

Nice little restaurant in a strip mall. Friendly, clean, pleasently appointed. Food was average, not expensive and a lot for the price. On Friday night 7:00pm or so, they have a great piano player.
