Came here with a friend to try a new place. This place has been around forever but is new to me. It's small and we didn't have a reservation. They fit us in. The waitstaff was pleasant and made great recommendations. My crab cakes were excellent with plenty of meat and my friend's lobster and crab ravioli were large and... More

My family and I had dinner here last week. We hadn't been for almost three years. Our meal was outstanding - I loved the delicious Lobster and Crab Ravioli in roasted red pepper cream sauce. Sadly I didn't have any room for dessert but I did have a small bite of my husband's crème brulee which was very good. This... More

My husband and I had a date night lined up and I was beyond excited. The place is so cute! I felt immediately transported to New York City's little Italy. The food was divine. I had a Delmonico Steak with blue cheese sauce and crumbles. My husband had the lobster and crab ravioli. Order from the specials if you can.... More

This place is a must if you love Italian food. The cellarette is quaint and on the dark side, just perfect for your romantic dinner. Now the food, wow. They always have specials which are awesome but off their main menu, chicken parmesan was thru the roof and my lasagna was excellent as well. My starter was a scallop bisque... More

Not all the taxi driver know the place. Anyway, this is not far from Park Road, that is the best thing to know to get there. Both pasta and meat are excellent. I went for veal with funghi (mushrooms) and this was delicious. The atmosphere, the wine, the quality of service is above the standards. Will definitely come back.

The restaurant is fairly small with a very nice cozy, romantic atmosphere. Excellent pasta dishes featuring home made pasta and variety of sauces for under $20. Large portions, drinks and friendly service. Reservations recommended. We were there on a Wednesday evening, and the dining room was full. Highly recommend it.

I recently went to dinner with some friends to Mom Chaffee's. This was my first visit. What a gem of a place! The decor here is perfect. Dark rustic semi-gloss painted walls is just right for an old style Italian restaurant. The food is fantastic as well as the service. I had rigatoni with basil pesto sauce. The appetizer selections... More

Enjoyed the atmosphere, food, and company. I grew up in the area and moved away almost 20 years ago, back then it was a great place and still is. A must go if you want great Italian food in the Reading area. Nice selections of apps, and entrées. To full for dessert. Thanks for remaining the same.

Thank Glenn L
