We stop in here at least once every time we are down here. Last time I was there we had the lobster ravioli, and the sauce they served it with was to die for. I've never had a complaint about this restaurant and I enjoy the family style serving because you get to try a good variety of food.

We tried it, even after reading many negative reviews which point out service, food quality issues and price. Very true. Rude service, even to a point of having to call the waiter for water refills. The bread was as hard as a brick. My husband had veal scallopini, and I had seafood linguini. Both dishes flavorless, The veal was as... More

We had a great dinner, waiters very polite and executive. The pasta were very tasty and so are the calmars. It was a nice experience but next time, we will know that we can bring our own wine instead of paying 5 times the price for a bottle.

I never write any reviews, but my bad experience dining at this place cannot go unheard. Right off the bat, the valet guy and then the usher gave me and my family dirty looks. Was it because we were wearing shorts and flip flops? Then we asked for a table inside and usher told us there was none available so... More

Evidently the restaurant either changed owners/management or has just dropped the quality of food, and service. First of all there is a distinctive discriminating attitude from some employees. You don't judge customers based on how they dress, ethnic background, languange, children etc. You don't judge anyone, period. The sour grape who "greeted" us was exactly this sort of person. Food...

Service was terrible. Place was disorganized, loud in an annoying way and so ordinary. Do yourself a favor and find another Italian place if you want "real" peasant Italian food. I ordered Chicken Parm and it was horrible, chewy with a distinct taste of burnt breadcrumbs. The tomato sauce was bland and tasted more like tomato juice, salad had brown... More

I read some of the previous poor reviews and my opinion is they don't know what good Italian food is all about. We had a great dinner starting with baked clams, fried zucchini and roasted peppers and onions. It was the best. Tasty and properly cooked. Our main dishes were family style, Chicken Scapriello , Shrimp Oreganato and linguine with... More

We were told this was a terrific place for dinner. We were no impressed. It is costly and structured so you order more than necessary. Strictly a la carte. My linguini with clams was poor. Chopped clams. You are better off with the meat options. Salad was good. Service was very good and the upscale setting appropriate. The food needs... More

The food quality ranges from good to very good, as does the service. Depends on the night. Portions are large - family style, and can be comfortably shared. Plenty of parking right in front. The ambient noise is somewhat loud for a business event.

Prices are extremely high for large portions of Italian American food. They are always very busy, attracting a large group of New York, New Joisey, LongIslanders with an average age pf 80 or so. Poorly thought out wine list.
