We have been here many times and are always impressed with the excellent food. Everything ordered is wonderful and beautifully presented. The wine pours are generous. The wait staff is helpful and the specials are printed in the menu which makes it easy on everyone....More

The atmosphere is one of a family owned restaurant , which it is. Fish meats and pasta were great. No culinary hyperbole here but good and fresh food. Service was prompt. They don't take reservations.

They leave you alone, the wine is generous. Food better than average. Nice waiters. Down in the " on the way to Shippan" area off Ex 8. Go south. On the right after you go right at the big grocery store.

Family owned and always always busy and noisy. Nothing fancy but fresh, delicious food, served promptly by efficient and friendly staff. Were with a group of six, and everyone enjoyed their meal immensely. Reasonably priced, too. Reservations essential!

This little restaurant has gained popularity due to it's great food and atmosphere! Everyone there makes you feel like an old friend, even if you have never been there before. Only downside is the wait can be long - so go early!!!!

Came here for a business meeting. Very happy with the wine and my dish, lasagna, which was perfect. The wait staff was friendly and attentive but it was busy on a Monday night so there was little time for anything more than that. I’m thinking...More
