We went here with friends, who had been before and were certain we didn't need a reservation. Since it was at the end of lunch rush, they did give us a table - right by the kitchen - which turned out to be fine anyway because the whole place feels like you've been crammed in with a shoe horn, so...

This is a good Italian restaurant - but not great. Food is fresh and everything we had was good. The atmosphere is nice and the service is good. It is rather small and popular so make reservations in advance.

The quarters are tight and there is a never ending line so be sure to make a reservation. The antipasto plate is delicious and the wine list exhaustive. We ordered salads and bolognese, ravioli and the clam linguine and all was tasty. We also ordered cheesecake, gelato and cream brûlée and all were delicious. Overall a satisfying dinner for all.

This appears like a truly authentic Italian restaurant. Small with great service and fantastic food. Price is also reasonable.

My favorite low key, authentic Italian restaurant. Their braised lamb shank served on a bed of polenta is the best around.

I loved this place. I had lunch and had a great meal of linguine and clams which was so delicious. I watched the Italian soccer game on the TV and when it was over they had Italian music playing. The ceiling had many soccer jerseys. I imagined I was in Italy. I will eat here again for sure if I... More

You must have a reservation or forget going. We walk in Sunday at 5:00PM at opening and ask if we could be seated. YES... the table was a bad table location in with a large group and we were told we have to leave in one hour since this bad location table was reserved at 6:00PM. We did feel welcome... More

My husband, sister and I arrived at 5:55pm and asked for a table. We were told by the hostess that due to incoming reservations, there was no room but we were welcome to wait outside for 15 minutes. If someone did not show up, we would be seated. The restaurant was 80% empty- 5 tables were being used. No offer... More

We had not made reservations but were in the area about 10 minutes before opening. By the time the restaurant started seating people, the line to get in had increased quite a bit. We were lucky & managed to get a table without a reservation. Service was friendly and the food was very good. We ordered the antipasta platter, carbonara... More
