I am not sure why everyone raves about this place. It seems that people equate ginormous portion sizing to good food. Pasta is way beyond over cooked and marinara sauce is straight from a can. Antipasti was also a mixture of various olives and artichokes...More

Go here and get the veal Parm and bring plenty of wine! Excellent staff, fantastic dishes and fresh food. This is truly a neighborhood gem and the one place that brings me back to Atlantic city.
