The space is very tight and full of decorations. And what a collection it is!!! I LOVE it. If you bring children, they will love it too. The food is fresh and well prepared. We ordered spaghetti and meatballs, gnocchi and clam linguini. They were all delicious. I highly recommend this place. I also recommend making a reservation. We went... More

The food was like no other Italian food I've ever tasted. It was incredible. The ambiance was most definitely bizzarro in the best way possible. I had the lasagna, it was superb! My partner had the meat pillows (ravioli), delicious. Our teenager had meatballs and spaghetti which they ate all of which is highly unusual as they always have at... More

Eclectic, appealing decor doesn't mean you don't have to clean... Food is fresh and tasty. Red sauce is spicy and flavorful. Nice menu, good service, definitely would go again.

Very funky inside, covered with antiques, memorabilia and weird stuff all over the walls and ceiling. It's a small place but it's fun and they have good Italian food. Plan on waiting for a table.

The perfect place on a cold, drizzly evening. Inside is all warm light, great scents, and muted conversation amid funky décor. The waitstaff was very attentive. And the food was excellent. My wife loved her GF pasta.

I've been to this place years before, and enjoyed it. This time, the linguine was over cooked and the sauce so salty I could hardly choke it down. This is an interesting place, but the food quality and execution this outing didn't impress. Perhaps they are coasting on their reputation... I still give it three stars, as the service was... More

Quirky, eclectic place that also feels like sitting in a family dining room. A big, lively, happy family. Service was great. Food, fantastic. Between the fiancé and I we tried bruschetta, arancini, lasagna, and the seasonal gnocchi (this one had chorizo and mushrooms). They appear to have a nice wine list as well and I did try roscoto rosse dolce,... More

Delicious food and fun atmosphere... not very big so larger groups may struggle to get a table without a reservation and they dont take rezies on fri/sat..we took kids and the plates could be shared , but no kids menu.. a little pricey but very tasty...

Before 6 pm you'll be seated, otherwise you'll wait. Overall, this popular Italian café is quaint, rose-colored within a kitsch atmosphere. For instance, from the ceiling hangs an upside down rickshaw with a human skeleton. Interesting displays, but if you look more closely you may be offended. No Italian music here, instead I heard rock and Smoke on the Water.... More
