This place seems to specialize in bridal and baby showers, Christening parties and kids b-days. I suppose it's fine for that, but not much else attracts. Food is OK, but better options abound nearby so why bother?

We had very good service from the time we entered the restaurant until we finished. On the whole, the food was very good. The Chicken Scarpariello was excellent, the Pork Chop was very good, but my wife was disappointed by the Chicken Marsala.

Had dinner at this long time favorite of mine. The stuffed artichoke (special) was fabulous and the brick oven pizza is incredible. All of the dishes are authentic and the staff is very helpful and accomodating. Try it....you'll like it.

Tired of baked ziti as the only Italian Food? Try Giardino in Douglaston, New York. Clean, quiet and great service. There is a full bar as well. Delicious! Good place for business or family.
