It's New World meets Old World, but you get the best of both with warm and fun service and an ambiance that's like coming home. Please call to verify hours and deals/specials - they are subject to change for event days, holidays and holiday weekends. November Early Dining Deal: $17.50 per person with choice of entree and a free bottle of wine for two to share when you dine between 5:30 and 6 p.m.

This place is about Italian as a can of Spaghetti-os from Chef Boyardee. The service tried hard to overcome underwhelming food, but nowhere near enough to get us to return. It seems to me as the owner is intent on supplying mediocre food, w/ fair service, and overpriced drinks to tourists which he can gouge based on a premium location. Proceed w/ caution.

“super food, good service”

Visiting family living here and they took us here. Very good food, reasonably priced. Portions were smaller than we have found the norm on this trip but were big enough. Service excellent recommended.

“Top 3 meals of all time for me”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013

Absolutely gorgeous food. We stumbled upon it whilst holidaying in Naples and fancying Italian food. The bright, childlike sign puts you off at first, but the building set amongst lovely vines and the menu enticed us in. We were not disappointed. The food was just sublime. I had the meatballs and they were just so delicious. I highly recommend having a meal here. Please!

“Wonderful flavors”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

We dined here in the off season and what a treat that is. Arriving early for their pre-fix dinner we were greeted by smiles all around the room. The dinner included two entree's plus a no name bottle of wine for $29.00 per person. We opted to take the wine home to cook with and ordered a nice bottle off their vast list. We also ordered their calamari appetizer and loved it, full of mixed hot peppers and other vegetables along with the calamari in a tempura batter. You gotta get this! We both had the Pappardelle and loved it, all though the pasta was a bit to heavy and took on a lasagna noodle in thickness.
Excellent service and a great location I would be glad to recommend this nice restaurant.
