We've eaten here twice. The food is outstanding with a feeling of a home Italian kitchen. Service was great. Nice selections of appetizers, pasta, main courses, wine and dessert. The best Italian anywhere close to Ambler, and beyond.

The service was fantastic as well as the food. Enjoyed home made gnocchi with Sunday gravy. I will definitely be dining here again.

Everything we had was delicious, service was exceptional as well. House wine was a little pricey for $10 a glass but all in all I would return.

Sorry for the delay in responding, I only now saw this notice. Not on New Years Eve than I can recall. They may have added Gluten free since so many people have issues now.

The restaurant in Blue Bell is BYO. The restaurant in Ambler has a full bar; however, they used to charge a $10 wine opening fee. Bring big bottles if you go. :)
