A little pricey but well worth it if you are looking for an authentic old style Italian cuisine. Gnocchi with meat sauce is to the best around. Deserts are great as are the starters. Can't go wrong with anything on the menu.

There is a nice room off to the side of the restaurant to have a party. The pasta was average. I had the salmon which was okay. The desserts were really good. They gave you a sampler of 4 different Italian desserts. .

Excellent Italian dishes and an a very good overall meal. The service was just OK , but the waiter was disappointed that we didn't come for a large meal and we didn't order any wine. Beside that a very good restaurant.

Try next door. Food and service are way overrated. Dated menu prepared in a pedestrian manner. Many better places in Bergen County for the money.

I don't think so. There is a separate room though. Would be a nice place for a party though.
