This is truly authentic, incredible Italian cuisine! The fried calamari appetizer was beautifully crisp and the portion so generous that we thought they might have mistakenly served two orders. A large bowl of house salad followed. The veal saltimbocca was perfect; the gnocchi with spinach & roasted peppers was topped with a coil of delicious "Arthur Avenue" sausage which we guessed was luganega. Again, generous portions. Reasonable prices. Interestingly, red house wines were Chianti and (as we recall) Montepulciano.
Atmosphere is casual, even with the nice touch of white tablecloths but the ambiance could benefit from some sort of screens or plants or dividers to avoid the one-large-open-room style.
Service was perfect. Vincent was expert, friendly, engaging, attentive and accommodating and well acquainted with the extensive menu.

Always a pleasure to eat here. The staff is fabulous, and the food is divine, but come hungry because they have over sized plates or take home the leftovers!

Family dinner for four. fabulous bruchetta. No one was able to finish their dinner selection. Courteous and friendly waitress made it a very nice time for all. I would go back again without a question.

If you're looking for a $10 plate and are ok with a small portion and below average food, this place is for you. The cold antipasta platter was actually good, however! A young guy with big arms in is early 20's served us and was not a good waiter at all. he looked and seemed as if he was counting the minutes until his shift was over so he can go to the gym. I had to ask him 3 times for bread and this was a business lunch so we kind of wanted to not spend a ton of time there. We were sitting for about 15 minutes before we ever saw any bread.
