Exceptional Italian restaurant. Everything is homemade and cooked to order. Homemade Limoncello to cap off an excellent meal and night.

Would never have noticed this place until we realized it was no longer a convenience store on the left of it which they expanded into. It's so homey inside and the owners are so sweet. The food is really good and different.

We went there because we had passed by about a hundred times and so just decided to give it a try. (Especially after reading all of the favorable reviews on another website we won't mention.) The reviews were RIGHT! This place if great. It only has 8 tables on the side we were on. I liked that to start with.... More

My family and I went here last Sat. night we were not disappointed. From the moment we walked in the front door service was great. Our table was ready, no having to sit and wait at the bar, but brought right to our table. By the way the bar is very nice to sit at for drinks or eats. We... More

What a great find in an unassuming neighborhood space!!! Posillipo has great food and a great staff. We sampled the cold antipasto and three of the Saturday night specials-Salmone dello Chef, capellini Golfo and the Rack of Lamb and all were wonderful! There are very reasonably priced wines and just a great vibe surrounding the excellent food. From the love... More

If you want authentic Italian food, look no further. The food here is amazing. The couple that own this restaurant, are friendly, professional and personable. The decor is outdated and tacky, but who cares when the meal is amazing! I've included a photo of my dinner. Yum!

Went to this restaurant for the first time just recently. This family owned restaurant is a great little find. The food was terrific. We had the chicken soup which was just delicious, and the main meals were prepared perfectly. The chicken in the chicken parm was breaded and fried just right, not to heavy, and the sauce was light and... More

My wife and I have been here on several occasions--for both eat in and take out meals. We have also taken our friends here for special occasions. The family-owned and operated restaurant serves authentic and delicious Italian food. The members of the family cook and serve the meals--while flavoring the tasty dishes with stories of the old country.

Just looking at the outside of this restaurant you wouldn't believe how great this restaurant is! The food is the bet around and everything is fresh and ever so delicious. It is our "go to" Italian restaurant where we know we can get a fabulous meal each time we go. Make sure you get a taste of the delicious homemade... More

Food is consistently very good. Specials always spot on. Ambiance is just okay, could be better. Lots of locals eat here.
