My husband and I ate here last night. It definitely looks like a hole in the wall from the outside, and very small, 8 tables. The waitress Sarah was super sweet. The menu is very limited and changes daily because they buy everything fresh that day. Don't be confused when you don't get a menu! They do a verbal one!... More

First time there, for Xmas eve. Concerned by the outside appearance and the size of the dining area ,with only 6 tables !!!! But boy, we were in for the treat of our life. The appetizers (Scallops), the house salads (two varieties, both excellent) and the main course (pork chops, and a shrimp/scallops combination) were simply superb. As good or... More

We also had the shrimp on fire and sausage and broccoli rabe...AMAZING!!! The owner Joe is so friendly, he sat and had a glass of wine with us. It is BYOB... More

My wife and I were very excited about getting in the Italian Cucina. I expected really good gravy but found it average at best We started with the sausage appetizer that everyone raves about. Basically it was a chili made with sausage meat. Very Average. I had the pork chop. I was use to having my chop grilled. I think... More

Nice little place off the road that serves different specialties each night. Tonight the variety was between pork, pasta, seafood, etc. in these specialties. The food was delicious! I had the salmon with salad and scallop appetizer. Overall the place is very personable as the owner seems to greet everyone coming into the door, regulars and newbies alike. Very friendly... More

My three friends and I (we're all African Americans) walked in, the hostess ran up to us and said "We have no room for you guys. Sorry you have to leave." Meanwhile, there was TWO open tables literally next to us. We were a party of 4. She wouldn't let us in the restaurant. It was obvious why we were... More

This place needs to be sanitized! Sticky tables, falling down building, flys everywhere. We left. It's a byob so I think this is why this place stays around. Owner needs to overhaul this place and break out the bacteria spray and scrub.

We visited with the family for a special authentic Italian dinner. Overall the dinner was good - but based on the overall ratings we expected awesome. I hope it was just that the meals weren't aligned with our tastes. I could tell by the careful attention to all the customers that the owner, who takes time to stop and say... More

I love this place. The food is excellent and freshly prepared. The owner, Joe, is such a wonderful person. He takes time to greet everyone! I just wish I had more time to enjoy this intimate place. Hope to be back soon. This place is NEVER disappointing.
