With ala carte dinners from $20-35, and starter salads running about $9, you can drop $50 a head here pretty easily. But the servers are pleasant, and the food quality seems high. All in all, a good main line Italian restaurant with lots of tables outdoors albeit next to the parking lot where the view is car bumpers and tail... More

Cafe Vico the restaurant I lovingly recall in when I,was kid sparring with Rocky Graziano. The food is authentic Sicicilian. From the clams in white broth to the Chicken Salmbuca or the whole roasted Branzino, the food is excellent. Note: there is a lovely jazz band that is quite good. Great for before or after dinner drinks, but take a... More

Tucked away in a shopping center, you will find this amazing restaurant. We dined there on Valentine's Day, our experience was outstanding. Our server was attentive and so personable. The meal itself was superb, the lasagne was the best ever. Can't wait to visit again. LOVED IT!!

I had the yellow tail snapper and my wife had the seafood ravioli...Both were perfectly done. The complimentary garlic dip is insanely good. I could have stopped my meal there. The only thing separating this restaurant from 5 stars is the limited wine selection. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys good quality and a reasonable... More

Recently went for dinner. Eating outside was quieter and warmer than inside which I prefer. Inside was a singer and it was a boisterous crowd. The wine list was comprehensive and reasonable. The service was good and attentive. I had the mussel appetizer and the clear sauce was disappointing . The entrees were all very tasty and portions were large... More

I have eaten here a few times and it's busy, friendly and tasty. Given that, I think it is a little expensive but learned that happy hour offers great small plates that are delicious and inexpensive. Couple that with happy hour pricing on drinks and it's a fantastic place to stop in to drink and snack while listing to live... More

This meal was unbelievable! We were greater by the owner/chef. His seafood ravioli was to die for. I also had a mocha cheesecake for dessert and a cappuccino. The meal was lovely. We sat outside and the service was impeccable. Wonderful meal.

This is a consistently good place to go for happy hour or later night dining. Owner is hands on and everyone makes your evening enjoyable. Great food and Live music. Lamb chip appetizer to die for, food generally is consistently very good!
