The Italian dishes are wonderful. My only criticism is sometimes the food can be a tad inconsistent on occasion but the get it right enough times to warrant the excellent ratings. The service is always fantastic.

The food and service were excellent although the restaurant was a bit difficult to find. Possibly that was the reason for so few diners on a Friday night.

Went on a Friday night. There were only 2 other tables with patrons. Sad...the food is really good here! I'm not sure how they can afford to stay open. The seafood was really fresh. (something you worry about in a non-busy place). Service was fine and timely.

The food is great with a overabundance of selections. Portions are also great. Service is always there to ask what you need.

Food was cold and tasted terrible. Service extremely slow. Food brought out at separate times. I would like to say it was a busy night to explain but there were four total people in the restaurant which included us. Waste of money. Would not recommend.

Went there last weekend with my fiancee. They serve big glasses of wine, but it took an unusually long time to get our soups and meals. Thankfully, once the meals were delivered to the table they were absolutely amazing, because the waitress did not come back to check on us until we were almost finished eating. Overall, dinner took about... More

We sat down and saw that they had a limited menu for the evening which was slightly disappointing at the... More

I get a Turkey supreme hoagie every time I'm there and some Italian lemon drink that I can't remember the name. The food is always good. Not cheap, but it's good. My woman always gets something different with soup too. And she's always happy with the food. (Not happy with me! But we won't go into it.) The owner is... More
