Nice atmosphere with a family feel touch. All meals prepared from scratch. We had homemade mozzarella cheese goodies, Cesar salad, chicken parmigiano, and shrimp scampi, everything was perfect and delicious. Don't forget the Sangiovise wine and canolis for dessert. Highly recommend similar touch as MIA in a family environment.

Thank Cynthia V

Service was fantastic, the ambience was great. We arrived later than the normal dinner hour, however food was still fresh and great.

Our family had Sunday brunch here and really enjoyed it! The live music was wonderful - they didn't play too loud, so you could enjoy the music and still talk to the people you were with. The service and food was really good - surprisingly large portions for lunch/brunch! We would definitely go here again!

Normally I've found that tripadvisor reviewers do a great job of reviewing restaurants. Maybe it wasn't their best day or maybe my wife and I could have ordered better but our experience was only average. Her eggplant rollatini was just O.K. The appetizer sampler was also average. My tortellini al forno, however, was very good. The atmosphere was nice but service was average at best. Based on my tortellini I get all the positive reviews but the rest of the meal was just average.
