Great food. Great wine. Great people. Great atmosphere. Perfect for date night or with a group of friends. I hope they never change what they’re doing.

Alex will do it all for his customers. Not only does he spend the day in the kitchen he comes out and entertains his customers. Leading them in karaoke and crooning them with his voice. Lots of FUN !

You have to overlook the location and exterior of this restaurant to enjoy the eclectic interior decorations and atmosphere of this little gem. The lasagna was wonderful, the crab appetizer had delicious crab flavor and the cannoli was amazing. The waitresses really take care of you.

Very small restaurant, but really good food. In house made pasta. We had reservation and got right in, but noticed several people being turned away without one. Quite inexpensive. Definitely recommend and we will return.

The food was excellent. I had the chicken manicotti, They got a really nice texture and very delicate breading or light frying on the chicken. The pasta is sturdy and smooth and the red sauce was tasted great. I really enjoy a red sauce when you can see fresh herbs and spices in an original texture so you know it's fresh made and unique. The chocolate cheesecake was amazing and my wife loved the chianti. Service was kind and personable. A very rare family or romantic atmosphere, the furthest thing possible from a chain cookie cutter experience. Great food at an affordable price.
