As has been noted by other reviewers, you must pass through the pizza portion of the store to reach the restaurant. The aromas are good preparation for what follows: high quality Italian fare. The dining room is on the small side, and the proximity of...More

Great place to grab some reliable traditional Italian cuisine at reasonable prices. Atmosphere is nice and traditional. I think the place is family owned and run. Great place for just a pizza or a sit down meal. Nothing fancy, but almost everything is good here.

Great food! Pleasant casual atmosphere behind the pizzaria. My wife and I go there all the time for all the various veal dishes and the eggplant parm which is such a classic New York version of the dish.

We were a party of 10. They were able to push tables together to accommodate us. The pasta was so light, the bread was so fresh. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The staff was very attentive. Would definitely go again.

The owner is always on site and works really hard. The waitstaff are fabulous and have been here for many years. It is a small restaurant behind a pizza shop. The chicken Francese is beyond delicious. The chicken parm tender and scrumptious. Each dinner comes...More
