This restaurant is still very 70s. It doesn't feel like much has changed (though the signed picture of Nixon on the wall is from the early 80s, so maybe i'm off in my timing).
The food though was good, and solid value. The gnocchi was light and the classic chicken parm was exactly as it should have been. The side of pasta was slightly salty (also right on) and the homemade sauce was good. The bread sticks and rolls, also good and plainly made in house.
Despite a lot of cars in the parking lot, it was fairly quiet inside - it must pick-up more at supper because it wouldn't survive long on what we saw at 1:00. The atmosphere is also likely better at night. It's a dark decor and likely looks better in low light.

It's likely not a destination restaurant and it's the farther thing from contemporary or modern or trendy, so for goodness sake don't go in expecting anything like that. But after the much-hyped nearby destination restaurant was a total bust for us (hello, Culinary Institute of America) finding food a couple of minutes away that wasn't the DQ and that was real and tasty was good news.

Our group made reservations for the Brunch they hold on Sundays. The food was good, the service was good and the price was right. Eggs were made to order plus a full line of breakfast and lunch items including mussels, egg plant, Everything was fresh, hot and delicious.

Nice atmosphere, great wait staff, attentive owner plus very delicious traditional Italian dishes. Extensive menu with the usual favorites plus a number of house specialties. Cocktails are the way they should be - filled to the brim...so be careful if you drive here!

Easy 2-3 minute walk from the Quality Inn if you are in town on business. Will definitely return if/when I'm in town again...probably the "go to" place for Italian in Hyde Park.

We just had a retirement party there Saturday night for 65 people and everything was great. The food, the service, the setting, the attention to detail, and their genuine gestures to accomodate our party. I can't say enough about this place and their staff. Thanx.
