Best Authentic Italian Food
This is the best Italian restaurant we have been to, as well as some of the best food from a restaurant overall. Tast homemade. We are an Italian family and this food was totally authentic and comforting. Clams appetizer, frutti de mar and the bread...were so simply perfect. And the Scampi Rose was something I will crave later. Wine ... read more

Finally tried it. It is a great locally owned Italian restaurant that makes fresh food and has a terrific menu, delicious food, many wines & dessert selections. A little pricey, but great for a romantic date night. The staff were very attentive. Will be back for an anniversary dinner!

First off the place is small, cozy, and very welcoming. The food was AMAZING. I ordered the eggplant parmesan with a side of broccolini. I ended up dipping my bread in the butter from my broccolini and it was to die for! I will be back. Also the customer service was amazing as well.

Place looked a bit dated an at times it was hard to see the menu because the lighting is really dark. But overall really good food and the portions are big, you definitely will take some home.

Food was very good, she crab soup may have been the best I ever had. Waitstaff were conscientious and provided good service.
