Highly overrated, but this is a pretty blighted area so not much to choose from. Be very careful. The sauce was awful. Some dishes may be ok. People are pleasant enough

Everything about this place is good! Food was delicious and it was a lot of food! We brought back home half of the dish. Wine was also very good and much more than the normal quantity for a glass. Service also excellent and the decoration was very cozy!

We ate here at least a year ago, and it is not cheap, but the food was excellent. The ambiance was romantic.

Went with my wife, daughter and mother in law for Christmas dinner. Ordered clams oreganata and fried calamari....clams oreganata were tabled with very little breading . Never had it like that. The fried calamari was chewy and very salty. Entrees were shrimp scampi , pasta orecchiette, and pasta fettuccine michaelangelo....dishes were okay but nothing special...had some good recommendations from people... More

It seemed nice, and cozy. The food was expensive for the area; there was not one entree priced less than $24.00 unless you ordered pasta which also was between $16.00 and $18.00. There was not even a salad offered. The bread was a small loaf, (hardly 5 slices for 4 guests) offered with seasoned olive oil and a small container... More

Amazing food, do not pass up the prosciutto cupcakes or the lobster Mac and cheese. Have a limoncello chilled. Service was awesome, although busy, never felt neglected. Great atmosphere, small but cozy.
