We were here for a luncheon for the family. The locale is convenient on Main St. Woodbridge. Angelo and his staff were very attentive to our large group. Our appetizers were family style and suited our needs. Everything so was well prepared and fresh. The fried calamari was excellent as was the caprese salad. Everyone chose their own entrée. No...

We had a small wedding ceremony and picked this restaurant for the dinner afterwards. The place is beautiful and has a nice ambiance. The staff is very professional and helpful, the food was amazing, the steak was absolutely perfect, as were the apprtizers, pasta and fish that our guests ordered. The parking is conveniently located behind the restaurant. Best part?... More

We found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and I'm really glad we did. It is in the small walking town in Woodbridge, a not so fabulous area, but we were there for a hockey tournament. What a diamond in the ruff. Great service, fresh Italian food, great for the whole family! Loved it!

Highly recommend the Arabbica (sp)Shrimp for an appetizer!In the warmer months, the patio is a nice area to have dinner.

I have been to this restaurant many times with friends, family, and children. I live 2 miles away so its very local for me. Everytime I come I cant resist the chicken francese, it truly is some of the best ever. Even though it does come with some veggies and potatoes, I have to get a small order of rigatoni... More

I have to tell you this is a great place. My party made reservations for 7:30, I arrived first and had an excellent Cosmo at the bar while I was waiting, the atmosphere was perfect, nice lighting, classic Sinatra playing in the background just what you would expect. We sat down, order some apps, I highly recommend the calamari, the... More

Looks small from outside but when you go in it has two bars and a few dining rooms. Cuisine Italian. Decor was warm and manly, but not over done. Waiters were so professional. Food was great. I didn't pay but I think prices were as expected for this grade of place. We shared calamari appetizers. Lightly coated which I like... More
