Pizzeria place, not a restaurant but could be a great place for excellent meal on a week day. Place was not busy when we went. Our pasta dishes: one outstanding and one over salted- carbonara. Service was good. Desert was a miss with canoli that was soggy not crispy. . Overall inconsistent.

A real Italian restaurant, although with some changes to menu style to suit local expectations, this is a welcome change from the many chain restaurants that are the same everywhere. Very good food, and a reasonably extensive and not over-priced wine list. My veal was perfectly cooked (pink), as was my wife's fish. The portion sizes are reasonable, so don't be afraid to order a couple of side dishes. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Service was perhaps just a little too rapid for my taste, I'd have preferred a slightly longer wait to finish my cocktail, and between courses, but that's very much personal preference. We will certainly return.
