We originally went here to go to Pepe's but the line was unbearable so we went here. The restaurant is very old fashioned. It's family own which is always nice, and they have lots of options. Food was average at best, so overall it was a decent place. Tbh also don't sell pizza so if you are coming for a... More

I was underwhelmed. We went for my husband birthday. He ordered Zuppa de clams, one son ordered Zuppa de Mussels. Both with linguine. Both my husband and... More

My friends and I, total of 11, were looking for a place to eat and the first place we found the line was too long. Then we found this gem. Walked in and they were happy to seat us and take care of us without a reservation on a Saturday night. Donna and Anne were outstanding. They were simply the... More

We had a party bus of us and we're planning on Pepes pizza but too long a line and there was this restaurant. They accommodated 11 of us with no problem. The staff was wonderful. Donna and I'm sad I don't recall the other server. The food was fantastic. Many had the seafood special and it was a bowl full... More

The restaurant has a nice dining room and bar. The table had complimentary olives etc. and the BEST rolls ever. And then an appreciated second plate of rolls arrived magically. One of the daughters was our waitress and she was more than helpful. She even went out to show one of our guests where to park. Now lets get to... More

This was an authentic Italian dinner from start to finish. The family style salad and bread was how we started. Each of the entrees were large and so yummy. The cannoli cream was so fresh with a hint of anise. The Sacco family runs a great place!

Have not been for a here for a while. Was going to go to Sally's but getting disappointed the way the boys are running it since Flo passed.
