This is the closest I've found to an "old country" Italian restaurant in the U.S., believe it or not. We've traveled throughout Italy, and our favorite places were alway the small family run Ristorantes in the villages, not the places commonly found in the cities. You want very good, well prepared , and well considered courses and portions... you want... More

If I could eat here every day, I would. I never get tired of their meals. If this restaurant where in Manhattan, they could easily charge three times the price for their meals !

What a wonderful place to go with friends. The owner and his wife treat you like you are family. We were there for almost three, just eating and talking. It was a great experience.

Dinner on weekends by reservations only, and Rosario offers a menu in which you are offered what he prepares. The lunch is also great on the sandwich board, the Italian cookies and pastries is like the shops up North in Ct. Great place with no disappointments

This is a small little deli with a lunch counter. FRESH FRESH FRESH everything. The best sandwiches, the best salads, the best gelato. OH, and don't forget the cookies... OMG, to die for.

Great deli sandwiches with some sides and the greatest gelato this side of Italy. The owners are from Italy and are very nice. Only open M-T for lunch. On Friday by reservations.

My hubby and I walked in here based on the reviews for this restaurant and have discovered an incredible gym in Inverness! Wow! Absolutely the best Panini's ever and the deli meats and cheeses are sliced fresh. I had the sandwich named the Fahgettaboudit and my hubby had the Italian. Both were delicious but mine was off-the-charts excellent! Wherever you... More
