The atmosphere is very much like an old time authentic Italian restaurant. Know this though, everything is family style. I ordered a salad thinking I was getting a side salad, even that was enough for more than 3 people.

Almost next to Nationwide Arena we ate there before a Bluejackets hockey game which could have been our mistake. The food was very average and the service very slow. The restaurant was crowded and the wait staff seemed overloaded. Maybe on a non-hockey game night...More
