The food here is incredible. As I told the waiter, I have traveled all over Italy, and Dat's Italian is as good as any I have eaten in Italy. A couple of notes: 1. This is a very small restaurant with a very small kitchen...More

Fried mozzarella lacked seasoning. I don’t mind ala cart menus if the price is appropriate - the entree $$ warranted a salad or soup included or at least a bread basket. Ordered the shrimp scampi which was laden in oil, not butter. The shrimp were...More

Well, dat's not the Italy I know! Twenty minutes sitting without a cocktail (waiter said he didn't know how to mix one, though on the bar list!) and without even a breadstick to munch on; then the meal arrived: overcooked pasta, a very watery pesto...More

Such a quaint, charming family Italian restaurant. We walked in for lunch mid-afternoon. Had the best lasagna! We did have to wait a bit, but we weren't in a hurry and it was very much worth the wait! Service was adequate, the server's charm was...More
