You could drive right past this little restaurant and not think much of it. However, the food and service were both outstanding. We were a group of 6 on a Thursday night, and had to wait about 20 minutes for a table to be set up. We closed the place down. The food was all delicious! The salads were big... More

Parking is very tight. Park across the street, much easier. Fully stocked bar with nice bartender. The restaurant is small and very loud. We sat at a middle table and there was a lot going on around us. Ordered the fried mozzarella as an appetizer. The marinara sauce is the best I've ever had. Amazing!!

This is an Italian restaurant with a bar. It is quite expensive although we did enjoy the veal dishes. I had a martini but it was not good. they do have a full bar. Only open in the evenings and they do not take reservations. We went early and found a parking space but parking is tight and you may... More

This little Italian restaurant is very popular with the locals. There are about 7 booths and 10 tables in one room along with a fully stocked bar. The wait staff was friendly and efficient. The restaurant gets very busy so get there early. We had the Chicken Parm and the Chicken Marsala. Both dishes were very good and came with... More

A favorite haunt for those who live in ocean view which I would like to keep secret. We love this place particularly the vodka martinis.

There are many fine restaurants in Norfolk, Virginia and one of them is somewhat off the beaten path. So, head to Ocean View, the Avenue along the Bay and stop for a nice southern Italian meal. The wine selection is more than adequate and our favorite appetizer is the roasted garlic plate. A large pizza is plenty for four and... More

This is one of my favorite Italian restaurants in the Tidewater area. Their chicken parm is the best. Only thing I don't like is that if you want pasta with it you have to order it separately. The wait staff is friendly and check on you often. The food is delicious. It is small with only 7 booths and 6... More

Ordered Greek salad. It was not cold and very disappointing with mostly just lettuce. Also had the baked fennel which was ok but was disappointed in serving size.

Got there at 5:30 and got the last table. There was a line out the door when we left. The food is tasty, the portions are huge, and the décor is quite pleasant. This is the place!
