I ordered the veal chops and they were overdone and tough. Sangria had way to much sugar, and too much acid(lime juice ?) I would give it another try in the near future

Wow! This place is great! I came here starving discouraged by the area but read the reviews! So good I came back a week later. Across Verrazano bridge exit12. Worth it if you are headed to NJ from NY.

We visit here often. Food is always a hit. My favorite is the stuffed scallops and shrimp in garlic. The chistora is always good too. The salmon dinner is delicious and you can't go wrong with The chicken marsala.

Simply Outstanding meal with good friends. Skirt steak was the best with garlic butter. The sangria was sweet and fruity. The almond liqueur was light and tasty. We will be back soon
