My husband and I were in town for one night before going on a cruise and really enjoyed this quaint little Italian restaurant. He had the lasagna and a caesar salad, and I had the fettucini alfredo. Everything was delicious and the service was prompt.

We came here around 7 on a Friday night and they were hopping; lots of carry-out orders coming in and out and we were quoted 20 minutes' wait. Were seated less than 5 minutes after we got there and Alfonzo, our server, was friendly and helpful. He made us feel like regulars instantly. Calamari appetizer is not to miss; The... More

This is an incredibly good restaurant. The food is consistently good and so is the service. I have eaten here at least once a month for years. It is a great go to restaurant because it is always good food.

We went on a weeknight and the service was quick and friendly. We had a Calamari appetizer which was very tender. I had linguini and white clam sauce and my wife had lasagna. The lasagna and bread sticks were good and she enjoyed them. My linguini was a large portion with plenty of chopped clams, it was good though a... More

Family of 3 went for dinner on a Thursday evening. We waited a few minutes for a table. We ordered a bottle of wine (pretty nice wine selection) and our meals. Appetizer came out quickly. It was the mozzarella sticks and they were good. Side salads were ok, the house dressing is great. Entrees came out fairly quick as well.... More

The food was just "ok" but was reasonably priced. I probably would not return to this restaurant as there are many other choices in town.

Our party of 3 ordered 2 of the specials, a sea bass dish and a penne ala vodka entree, along with a vegetable pasta dish. The penne flavor was really off the mark. I could tell if they poured vodka in the sauce just prior to serving it or if they had put sherry in the mix. Either way it... More

My wife and I LOVE this place because the wait staff is mature and understands they are there to serve and not be served. Excellent food. I can't say enough about this place. It is NOT expensive either. Two can eat for under $20 and not come away hungry.
