Great food, semi-intimate dining, terrific service. A bit off the beaten path for tourists but the locals sure know about it! Well worth the trip. Bon Appetite!

I recommend dining outside - it is a great atmosphere & it was a wonderful night outside - be prepared because they do allow smoking - including cigars

We ordered:
FILETTO EN FRAC (grilled filet mignon topped with melted gorgonzola & finished in a port wine sauce)
& Lasagna
HUGE portions!

We visited this restaurant twice during our travels to Yonkers. Loved the relaxed atmosphere and got a good feeling about the locals here. Wednesday night is $9.99 pasta night. It's a great deal! and the food is delicious. We hope to be able to visit again in the summer because there's an outside dining area and I suspect it's quite romantic. Portions are large and do not disappoint.

My wife and I made a reservation for Saturday night 7PM. The person taking the reservation during the day seemed confused on how to take a reservation so we were a little nervous heading in. The neighborhood is industrial and parking was on the street due to parking lot being full. My wife had the ravioli which was a special and she loved it. I had the chicken scarpiello which had too many onions and green peppers for my liking but the sauce, chicken and sausage were excellent. Also instead of potatoes there were potato chips on top which may have been homemade. We skipped the appetizers because the entrees came with a house salad which was fine, although mine had a cucumber slice that had gone bad. Dessert was another nice surprise with homemade zeppolies. We plan to go back on a week nite.

This place is a little hard and is in between an industrial area and a parkway. But inside is fine and the food is good. They have a patio for outside dining which has enough landscaping to hide the surroundings and create a nice atmosphere. We've been there many times eating both inside and outside.
