This is our "go to" restaurant in Auburn for great Italian food. Owners, Duffy and Fran make you feel at home when you arrive and throughout you meal. You often see Chef Duffy out and around visiting with his customers, which is unique in this day and age! It is well worth the trip to Auburn to get "the best"

Quality food. Little pricey but well worth it. Nice quiet atmosphere. Chef comes out and asks everyone if there meal is ok. Best restaurant in Auburn.

My wife and I ate dinner here on a Saturday and I was great. We had been looking for a great Italian restaurant in our area and this is it. It is a small place so I would recommend getting a reservation. I had stuffed shells and my wife had the chicken parm. Everything was excellent.

I went Saturday night with my wife and two friends. First, you must make a reservation. They are open from 4:30 to 9:30 PM only. The menu is Italian with steaks. The owner and chef comes out from the kitchen often. Everything is made when you order it, so be patient. My wife always orders the dressing on the side.... More

Recently visited for a family dinner and what a wonderful dinner we had. The atmosphere was perfect, staff attentive and pleasant, and the food unbelievably delicious. The appetizer special, a tray of assorted cheese and meats with homemade caponata was the best we have ever ate. Homemade soup reminded me of my Italian grandmama . Our dinners were freshly prepared,... More

This is a fav of mine for some special occasion. Most meals are $20+, but the portions are large and the food is fresh. My favorite is the shrimp scampi with angel hair pasta. Small friendly atmosphere.

We had dinner here on a Friday evening. When we entered we were asked if we had reservations, which we did not. We thought this was odd because the dining room and bar eating area were by no means busy and quite frankly for the hour or so we were there they did not get busy. We got a booth... More
