Service was very attentive and had a good family vibe on a drizzly/snowy Sunday evening. Prices are very reasonable and the house red wine is a good value. My wife had angel hair pasta with shrimp and was very happy. I felt the best way...More

A small (very small) Italian restaurant. Parking in the back. If you didn't know it was there you'd miss it. The food is very good. The service is OK. This is what a neighborhood place should feel like. If you want Italian and don't want...More

Small family run restaurant with a good choice of inexpensive pasta dishes. Off street parking lot is in the rear of the building.

Most importantly, for the price and menu, the wine selection is compatible. This is authentic in that you can order the pasta you prefer with the sauce you prefer. Beyond that, they have classic Italian dishes. But the best part is the atmosphere. Bring your...More
