I never had veal before. So I was curious as to how it would be. As it turned out it was above delicious! Also, I would like to add that I made a special request from my server; It was very important to me, and she came through with "flying colors!" I highly recommend this restaurant..

This little restaurant was a pleasant surprise. Small and not fancy. Hubby and I each had an Italian sandwich and caprese salad combo. Excellent! The owner is friendly and chats with his patrons. We made Valentine reservation for 5-course dinner and can't wait.

I've been going for years and it's still the same-authentic, fresh, inviting. True Italian. Their weekend suppers are out of this world, or at least you went to Italy after eating their meal - WOW. And, the men can sing! Italiano, of course.

I was not happy with the Italian restaurants around here but I was impressed with what they offered. Now, this place is different from the normal restaurant. They offer dinner only on Friday and Saturday. It is one seating only at 6:30 pm on the dot and have 40 seats. No menu and it is either 5 or 7 course... More

It's a deli by day, but one night each week it turns into a very charming restaurant. A good friend treated us to dinner for my husband's birthday. We had a wonderful 7 course dinner (yes, we were quite stuffed at the end). Throughout the evening, we were entertained by the owner with singing or talking to us to make... More

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 !
