There were 4 in our party. We had a 15 minute wait for our table in a very congested doorway, there was no formal waiting area and it was cold outside. We were shown to our table, bumping into guests and servers along the way and given menus and water. It took 15 minutes for a server to come by... More

Every time we go there the food is just great. the servings are large and you will go home with at least one meal if not two. Our server Roxanne was just great tonight. This is a very comfortable restaurant where they make you feel at home.

Good Italian food and a nice restaurant inside. Plenty of parking and a good place to meet with just two people or a large group.

While the Owner Danny is a drunken tough guy with high turnover of staff, the food is great. This is a fine dining, intimate establishment located across from the Saugus Police Station. Drinks, appetizers and desserts are great. Waitstaff is cordial and wonderful and welcoming. Variety of menu items and prices.

This was our second time there today and the food was great. the portions are large and there is plenty of food to take home. I was a little disappointed in the service . The service was slow and the two servers seemed to busy to handle the whole restaurant.
