Everything in this establishment is old world....and that's a good thing. Food is delicious, warm bread was excellent and service was appropriately attentive. What more could you ask for!

When we first tried this place they gave up spoiled fish and were annoyed when we pointed it out. Did not go back for years. We then decided to try it again and had it delivered at home. It was terrible. Will not be back. They have been in business a long time so I guess there are some people... More

This is a lovely, intimate family owned restaurant - the food is authentic and delicious - you feel as though you are being invited into a friend's nicely furnished home when you eat here!

This charming Neapolitan house can't be ignored. It welcomes you and sits with white table cloth and silver. Our maitre' d and wait staff were so attentive. We ordered delicious appetizers of grilled artichoke hearts and calamari dishes. These teased our pallets. Entrees were clear was this is a restaurant that uses only the finest, freshest ingredients available...You will swear... More

That was the first Italian restaurant in New York (Edgewater, NJ, other side of the Hudson river) where I had an authentic Italian food with my Italo-American family. The antipasti were fresh, pasta well cooked and al dente. You can order a mixed menu (antipasto, first course, second course, side salad) at a very good price. Classic dishes, good portions....

Four of us meet every few months for dinner. Last night Tony picked the place and it was a big hit. This place serves authentic Italian food from Naples. The wife cooks it and the husband takes care of the restaurant. We all shared appetizers such as mussels, calamari and asparagus & funghi. They were all delicious. Two of us... More
