We had a reservation and were seated right away. Brought us water. We waited about ten minutes for a waiter to take our drink order. Brought those back a little later. Came back about 15mins later and took our order. Service was extremely slow. We waited about 40 minutes for food that was less than good. We would not return... More

Arrived 15 minutes before closing (9:00pm) on a saturday night and were seated right away. Ordered arancini, antipasti salad, pizza, and lobster stuffed ravioli. Food was served quickly, service was attentive and not rushed, and the prices were reasonable. A good choice.

The service was slow but our plates were very good, however, the broccoli were cold, to cold for the the plate. The portions are generous and affordable.

I have rediscovered this restaurant recently. Delicious food, great service, and comfortable setting. A short drive from downtown Burlington. Eggplant parmigiana is the best I've had anywhere.

When I lived in Vermont as a teen, we always ordered delivery. I came back to town as a 43 year old and finally went inside to eat with my family. Very quaint with a sweet, young staff. All 4 of us were part of the clean plate club!

We had arancini. They were very good. Honey pepper chicken wings very bland. Bread that comes in basket not good...obviously a poor quality frozen product. Pizza was more crust than topping, but ok. They do serve heady topper so that is a plus. We ordered a couple tiramisu to go. Ate them when got to hotel...about 10 minutes later.....both were... More

I have been going to this restaurant for years. The food has always been good, Italian/American comfort food. It is by no means a fancy restaurant, but it is cozy and the staff friendly. The last two time I went, the wait has been unacceptably long, and our order has been messed up. It is not okay to wait nearly... More

This was my first visit to this restaurant and I was really disappointed. The lack of even mediocre service ruined the experience and warrants this low rating. First, I will say it was a Saturday night (6:00) and they were really busy. We were seated right away, but then waited about 15 minutes before anyone came to our table. When... More
