Great service! Loved the red wine and food was very good. Turned into a 3 hour dinner visit and staff was very kind and did not rush us at all! Excellent homemade pasta:)

My husband and I had dinner here with our friends. Love the atmosphere. Staff is friendly. The owner is very nice. The food is incredible. I have had multiple dishes and have loved them all. Amazing meat sauce. Lasagne is quite good as well. This is definitely a place that we will continue to return to. You won't regret giving... More

Very nice intimate restaurant with excellent staff. After reading all the glowing reviews, I was expecting my meal to be outstanding. Unfortunately that was not the case. I had the Salmone Limone. It was dry and overcooked. The remainder of the meal was very good. So, I think it is worth trying again. However, I was surprised that an Italian... More

From the moment you walk in the family-owned restaurant, you are greeted and treated like a member of their family! I felt like I was back in the trattorias in Italy! The restaurant is small and quaint and the food is fresh and authentic. For appetizers, I recommend the Bruschetta and Capraccio Florentino...both are excellent! The Veal Limone, Lasagna Classica...

This small, authentic spot is my new favorite place to get Italian food in GE! The decor is so inviting and traditional, makes you feel as though you're eating at a small cafe in Italy. Pasta dishes are generous and delicious. They have a lovely Specials menu that has never disappointed. Bread and olive oil is solid, and it's impossible... More

I've been here many times and always had a good experience until recently. There was a wait and my friend and I were looking at the wine list at the hostess stand, the man behind the counter (probably the owner) poured a glass of "special wine that was not on the menu, as he says" for my friend to taste....

Delizioso! I am Italian, cook Italian and eat Italian! and... THIS IS MY FIRST CHOICE IF I AM GOING OUT OF MY HOUSE TO EAT ITALIAN FOOD! If I were to close my eyes, I would think Ma was putting a dish in front of me. I have tasted a few of their meals and each one taste like home!... More

Having visited Italy the month prior, this was a very authentic experience. We arrived without a reservation and were greeted at the stand-up-only bar with a glass of wine and a cocktail for our kids. After a brief wait, we were seated and the experience began. Italian ham and cheese - excellent! The menu had plenty of variety without being... More
