On this visit there were three of us. We ordered Chicken French over Capellini, Chicken French over escarole, and Seafood Marinara over Capellini. Chicken French portions are big, sauce is very flavorful. Both meals were very good. The Seafood Marinara comes with shrimp and scallops. There were six shrimp and six scallops with the pasta. Marinara sauce had good flavor... More

Had a great time. I like the way they offer sample tastes of a featured wine. We bought the bottle it was so good. Family style salad is also very good complemented by the homemade brew ads and oil dips. Lobster Ravioli, Gnocchi, Clams & Linguini and more. The owner from Sicily really knows her food. She walks around and... More

The place is small and cozy, and everything is cooked to order. The Saltimbocca was great, and the assorted homemade ravioli were excellent. Everything on the menu looked so good i wanted to order it all.

The calamari and lobster ravioli were wonderful. The only complaint is that 2 out of 6-7 of my lobster ravioli were empty. That was a bummer. But I plan on going back because we really enjoyed it.

10 of us made reservations for a birthday celebration and we were very pleased. We got calamari as an appetizer and it was extremely tender. I ordered the seafood pasta, a small version, and I still took some home. It was very good and chocked full of seafood including scallops, calamari, and clams. Other popular dishes around the table included... More

when we arrived, it must have been a bit early because very shortly the dining room was full with folks celebrating the holiday, birthday and a great dinner out. The service is very good, the menu full of choices - almost too many to make a choice. We selected the house salad, and surprisingly we both wanted the ravioli, one... More

We arrived late on Sunday night, the patrons in the restaurant were all finishing their meals. We ordered Arancini, the rice balls, it was so delicious. We also had Grandpa's Sampler, the broiled haddock special, chicken parmesan, and two other entrees. The food was some of the best we've ever tasted. We were never rushed, even though we were the...

Slightly-better-than average Italian food; large portions, very noisy on a Saturday night, and slow service. Definitely a blue-collar crowd who appreciated the food. The salad, almost entirely lettuce, was for the whole table. The bread was pasty and little crust, but served with olive oil and cheese.

Yes it was busy, a large group ahead of us, but a very short wait. It looked like most or the room just came in..family style salad on the table with plenty of fresh Italian bread. The wait was short and our meal arrived...enough time for us to enjoy a conservation and salad. All around us meals were being enjoyed,... More
