We visited the restaurant last night and prior to arriving we were very favourably predisposed to anticipating a GREAT meal. The staff was on top of their game and attentive throughout the whole time we were there; high scores all around for service. The space is nice and somewhat cozy but loud due to the open floor plan and loft... More

Really sorry about the size of the Salmon. I'm not sure why it was 4 to 6 oz. We weigh everything and give abut 10-12 oz of salmon with every order. This is the same with our Red Snapper. It's actually the same for most of our meat and fish dishes. I am really sorry. As far as our prices,... More

Just incredible. Never had better lasagna in my life. Nothing more I can say about it! Great atmosphere inside. A bit cramped, but the food makes up for it. 5 Stars. Will be back again.

Frank and company do a great job and these are some of the best veal dishes of any Italian restaurant we've visited. Lasagna is wonderful and even the spaghetti and giant meatballs are great. Salads and desert are great too. Oh and so are the prices. You almost owe it to yourself to go and find out for yourself.

One of our all-time favorite restaurants. We've been here several times and they never disappoint. Place is cozy and offers a warm welcome whether you're dressed up, or come in shorts and sandals. Nice selection of wines, everything fair priced, run by a FAMILY who obviously care very much about their patrons and experience. When I made reservation, I mentioned... More

This is my favorite Italian restaurant. The ingredients taste fresh, not jarred. The lasagna is very good--not overstuffed with egg and ricotta filler. Gnocchi, fettuccine alfredo, carbonara, red snapper, meatballs--all very good! You may want to split a dish if you don't want leftovers. Family restaurant, service is good, not stuffy. Parking available along street. They will accommodate special food... More
