Consistently good Northern Italian food. BYOB. A bit pricey, but worth it for special occasions. Lasagna is excellent! Nice intimate decor. Crowded on weekends, but easy to get into on weekdays. Worth the trip.

We went here with a group of friends for dinner on a Saturday night. The restaurant was busy since sure to make reservations in advance. We had a great time with a relaxed pace of the meal we were able to enjoy lots of time to talk and did not feel rushed. The food is outstanding with generous portions and... More

The food is genuine Roman fare. Fresh, tasty, and just like home. Weekends get very noisy to the point you almost cannot hear the person next to you. Well worth you visit. The Osso buco was delish

This was our (my wife and me) first time to this restaurant and really did not know what to expect. We were both pleasantly surprised with the food and service. The fact that it is a BYOB makes it even nicer. The owner met us at the door and was very cordial and accommodating. We had a table for two... More

Highly recommend. Clams were great as well as the veal parm. The desserts were to die for. BYOB so don't forget your wine.

Really good food, good value, and a BYOB. But, extremely LOUD. We could hardly hear each other as the evening wore on. Something wrong with the acoustics.

New Years Eve dinner was a disappointment. One salad was served with frozen tomatoes and the waitress acted like it was a normal occurrence. We were offered no fresh cracked pepper or any type of drink after dinner but coffee. Our waitress offered every other table fresh pepper, espresso, and cappuccino. We won't be back as the food was so... More

Where to begin? The complimentary bean salad is to die for. The artichoke appetizer perfect. Always a delicious meal, lunch or dinner. Try Sunday Pranza with friends and family.j

Love the food and service here!! It is a BYOB, and if you plan to go on a weekend reservations is a must.

We had dinner with friends here and had a great meal! The artichoke appetizer is seriously delicious and enough for 2 to split. Their meatball appetizer is 2 huge meatballs with dollops of ricotta on top and they were very good. My braciole was outstanding. I enjoyed every bite. The other diners in our group enjoyed their meals also. The... More
