“great salads and spaghetti marinara, not sure about the pizza”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

We really enjoyed their very fresh salads and the spaghetti marinara which was not on the menu but which they were happy to make for us (about $11).

We ordered the square pizza with extra pepperoni for $22. This was huge, with a thick base, sliced into 8 large rectangles. We had some difficulty getting through even one slice each as it was so doughy. If you like a doughy pizza, it was great. We should have checked before we ordered, as we prefer very thin bases.

They told us they opened at 11am but when we arrived at noon (having reserved in advance) they had to unlock the doors for us and we did have to wait to order as the pizza oven was only just turned on. Their excuse was that they had a long journey to get to work!

Service was willing but inexperienced. One of the waiters told us repeatedly that riesling was the only sweet wine in the world! He also lectured on rose wine, telling us it was a blend of red and white grapes. Beware.

We'd certainly go back for their salads and their pasta but will have to check if they can do thinner pizzas. . About $100 for 4 with beers, one glass of riesling, the huge square pizza, one pasta, and a salad.

“Satisfactory food, and service.”
Reviewed 4 July 2013

A bit pricey for what they serve, food acceptable to good, occasional disappointment. Popular with groups.

“Great Pizza and grilled veggies”
Reviewed 22 March 2013

The food has consistently been good. This is a local italian with great pizza and outdoor seating. There were several families, which were seated in the "pizza" section. If desired, there's a "no pizza" section.

“Lucia's Simmers with Delight”
Reviewed 2 March 2013

At the last minute, at the height of the dinner hour, on a Friday night, 11 of us converged on this divine restaurant, and we couldn't have been made to feel more welcome, or comfortable. Our server was patient, solicitous, and just fabulous. The food? Incredible. My pappardelle with meat sauce should have been divided in 2 and taken home half... I couldn't stop eating it. The salads were fresh; all dressings were house made and delivered on the side; and the wines we had were fairly priced. Would I go back? This morning, I read the menu once more, on line, to fantasize about my next meal there. Oh. mmmmmmmmmmm.

“Great Italian , for North of the Bronx!”
Reviewed 7 January 2013

This is great for either family dining or intimate dining and outside dining too in the warmer months. It is a great "go to" for good, solid Italian fare! Plus they are nice, accomodating and know their business.
