A great stop before your trip into the city, this fine and fun establishment. I'm a huge pizza buff but the night we visited wasn't a pizza night and was all was great. This was a really nice find thanks to a friend who lives...More

I know this restaurant as Boccone South, which is how it is listed and advertised. Names aside, this restaurant is more than just great food, it is the whole experience of dining with an Italian family, for that is what the owner, Silvio and his...More

We have been to this restaurant over the years in its multiple iterations. Quality has varied from owner to owner. The current lunch special however is worth a regular visit. The food is good, the service has been lovely, and the price can't be beaten....More

Generally I enjoy the food. Some of my friends have complained that their food has been salty, but I have not had that issue with the chicken dishes. I particulary like the house salad and will not hesitate to return.

We have gone here for years and I have to say, after every visit we ask why we go there. Straight up mob. Clearly a place that caters to some and ignores the rest. No more. It's not worth it. Stuck up

Good food, fairly priced. Very friendly a pleasure to eat here because they seem to enjoy having customers who are treated as customers rather than as if they are doing you a favor by selling you something (all too common in service businesses these days)

This is an up-scale Italian restaurant with a traditional menu and great food and excellent service. The entrees were classic Italian dishes (I had Cappellini di Mare for $24,00), done very well. The seafood in my meal seemed fresh and abundant. I also had a...More

We occasionally stop in here for a nice meal. We have never been disappointed. The service is great, the food is wonderful, thoughtfully prepared, tasty, and presented well. When we go here we usually do the whole thing: apps, dinner & deserts. Since we must...More
