Don't let the outside or the neighborhood make you pass up this dining experience. If you don't mind eating in an old bookstore, with plastic table cloths and mismatched furniture, you will get a very good meal. Our server, Chelsey, was delightful and efficient. I had linguini with clams, and everything was cooked perfectly. The salad was fresh and the dressing tasty. My husband had the lasagna and he really enjoyed it. The desserts were homemade and just delicious. It is different, but worth the experience for good food. Being a New Yorker, I enjoy Italian food and appreciated having it explained that this is Sicilian style...not what you would find in Rome. I would certainly go back.

YEAH! Wonderfully prepared. The italian chef/owner knows what she is doing. Try her pesto,olive,pepperocini sauce. To die for! The staff was so accomadating and nice. Yes, it takes longer than fast food. It's worth it! My friend said the homemade potpie was incredible.

Setting is cramped, run down looking. Ok - I can go with some antique charm for a nice dining experience. Waited 15 minutes for water. The wait person (who I believe was the cooks helper and not really wait staff) explained they were short handed. Beer list? One kind "it's off-season"??? Ordered. Waited 15 min for salads (in which time the waitress came and asked if everything was ok [what, the water?]. Salads were fine, basic lettuce mix.
Some hard, cold, dry bread arrived with no oil or butter...Another 15 minutes and the food arrived. Don't make the mistake of ordering the Petite Portion - as our regular portions weren't enough to fill a child. Laughable portions - seriously! We asked for more bread - which arrived after the 3 bites of the entrée were gone. It was accompanied by the chef (personable) - with reasons why things were so slow and disorganized. I have to say, everyone liked the taste of the food - but the rest of the experience was a disaster.

GREAT Italian food is not cheap, easy or quick to make! But this beautiful place is still affordable. We had stuffed mushrooms and meatballs for an appetizer. We enjoyed our salads and garlic flatbread. And then we had linguini with alfredo sauce and hot Italian sausage and the cannelloni....... Both were excellent! We would definitely go back. Enjoyed a very different and unique atmosphere with superb service! Our waitress was extremely attentive and wonderful.

Was recommended by the hotel to eat here and it was superb! Excellent service, great surroundings (surrounded by books!). Pasta was to die for as was the garlic bread. A slice of each desert was brought out on a tray for you to look at and then choose - so much better than looking at a menu! Can't fault it. We took away enough for a meal the next evening too.
