The chef's family is from the Calabria region of southern Italy, & you can certainly tell with the authentic Italian flavors in each home made meal! Our favorites are the shrimp Calabrese & the chicken Calabrese. A very small but quaint dining environment. Portions are very generous!

Went to celebrate a birthday with friends. They now offer an Italian buffet but we chose to order off the menu. Three of our diners had the shrimp scampi, two with broccoli. They all enjoyed the large portions so they took home a portion. I went with Veal Marsala, the veal here is the best in the valley. We had... More

Really tasty well-prepared Italian food at a reasonable price. The atmosphere is cozy for an intimate meal and quiet conversation. The menu has a nice selection. My only complaint is I couldn't find room for a canoli after the large dish of pasta.

The service was horrible, the owner was a jerk. Wouldn't accept a coupon because it was a "holiday." Even though it was the day before the holiday and restaurant.com states there are no black out dates. The quality of the food wasn't there. Chicken was thick and tough. I've fed my dog higher quality food out of an Alpo can.... More

A different take on Italian dishes. Try Karen's specialties. They are great comfort dishes. Also try Bernie's homemade pasta.

Some of the very best homemade Italian in Northeast Pennsylvania. Excellent Veal and Sausage meals and sandwiches. Very quaint dining atmosphere with excellent family run service. Easy parking in the rear of the restaurant. Nice bar. Definitely worth the visit.
