We made reservations for party of 6 for New Year's Eve. We were seated on time. The service was spot on. Very friendly and personable; from the waiting staff to the bus boy! The food was outstanding. Some of the meals we ordered were the Special of the day - stuffed shells and salmon dish, Penne al Espagnola, Manicotti all... More

visited this restaurant on a date nearly 20 years ago and enjoyed it but life got in the way of returning. Moved into a condo nearby and re-discovered this gem. Great food!

I have been eating here since the 1980s. Although the owner Pepe is Spanish, it is a great little Italian restaurant. I have never had a bad meal here, you really can't go wrong starting with the salad with home-made blue cheese dressing. My wife usually has a veal dish while I am a big pasta fan. It is hard...

Thanks to other reviewers of this place, I was able to delight my mom today by picking her up a slice of cheesecake. The guys at Mascarpones dressed it up for us with some whipped cream and berries. Amazing quality - like homemade with lovely graham crust. Too big for my poor mom to finish, so I had to help... More

We have dined here many times over a span of probably 20 years. You cannot really go wrong. As others have said, you will drive right by if you not aware of it because it is not a "stand alone" restaurant. Plenty of parking in the rear. Family owned. Anything will be good. Nice small intimate bar. Reservations would be... More

I've never had a bad meal here - either dinner or lunch. Nice wine list, good variety on the menu, attentive service and reasonable prices. Lunchtimes are uncrowded. It's an intimate restaurant, but acoustics are good so never had noise be a problem. Ownership is friendly and involved in all aspects. My favorites are Cappelini d' Angelo, Penne Arrabiata, and...

You can drive right by and not see it. Almost all parking (Plenty of it) is in the rear. We were able to park right in front of the front door on the street. We were seated right away and noticed it was kind of dark, but felt like grandma's place. The selection was very large. The food portions were... More
