This is an old school Italian restaurant and they know what they are doing. The food isn't cutting edge, but they get the classics right. Food is wonderful and portions generous. Prices are reasonable. Service is friendly and efficient. Decor is classic, but not shabby....More

We had a very nice meal on a sunny Saturday night. We shares antipasti (starter) and had two pasta dishes and was well satisfied with both. It’s seems like a family owned place with a very pleasant atmosphere.

What a meal we had. True Italian food at its best. We had baked ziti, lasagna, and Alfredo. Joe, the owner, is a true Brooklyn gentleman. By the way, the canolli was the bomb.

Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families
stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up
at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from
the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many
bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where
