Must have been a bad day for servers and chefs . Lady serving us was very angry and dismissive. Got order wrong 2 times and was annoyed about it . Could not get a soda after asking 3 times. Could not get away fast enough.

Excellent service despite being nearly full. Eggplant, side order of sausages, fresh salad and warm bread with butter also excellent. Truly outstanding was the fresh, delicate bruschetta sauce on the gnocchi. Added bonus ---reasonably good wine. Phenomenal value. Intend to make it a habit.

A native of of NYC's little Italy, I thought I'd never find anything close to the authentic flavors of the old country. (Sorry folks but Olive Garden,. Romanos's Macaroni Gril, Carrabba's, etc. don't come close to Italian) I've been a fan since it opened. Though...More
