Ate with my son upstairs, which was the only part of the restaurant open. From street looked like a roof deck, but getting up there it's more indoors without the windows put into the frames. Plastic tables covered with dark plastic table cloths with a...More

For many years my wife and I were regulars here enjoying memorable meals courtesy of Roberto and his extended family. Over time, the staff changed and some dishes became disappointing and we drifted away. Mainly for old times sake, we went back for dinner and...More
