Everyone's food was delicious. The ravioli I ordered melted in my mouth, and the meatballs were excellent. Service was top notch. Atmosphere was very friendly.

The service at the restaurant was excellent. Bread, olives and peppers brought to table were good. There was a nice menu and the restaurant was nice - not too fancy but very nice small place. Prices were good. The food was good with pasta cooked perfectly and chicken parm cooked well. I was just looking for a bit more flavor... More

We were greeted and seated promptly, had our water glasses constantly refilled (a mark of attentive service, in my opinion), and a large loaf of fresh bread and house salads. The owner was there to answer our questions....and then we... More

I have been here a few times previously and experienced the same great meals and service. Small dining room, not far from EWR. Good place to get away from your airport hotel restaurant. Have had fish bud pasta here and they did not disappoint. Staff is great and drinks are strong. As it is small, it is rather quiet -... More

The Manila clams in red... More

We have been here many, many times over the past years and it is simply our favorite local place It's also the place we take our out of town friends and family or have special occasion dinners (e.g. my 50th birthday). You can count on an excellent meal everytime, freshly cooked with local ingredients. In season, the salad tomatoes come... More
