We have been going to this Restaurant a number of times and always found the food to be decent and I think fairly priced. Just recently, I got home late with my son and I just did not want to go through the trouble of making anything. So I suggested to my sone to order something and he suggested Puccini... More

Came here with a group of 9 girls for a GNO. I felt bad because we were a bit loud, but when you put 9 mommies/wives together for a night without kids/husbands with wine ..well... you know you get laughter.... The owner and his family are just wonderful. Very attentive and accommodating. The food was so fresh. The oysters and... More

I like the atmosphere of this restaurant. Owners are friendly and it has a homey feel. Also open on Mondays. Had pepperdella with seafood in a tomato sauce that was a little creamy. Very delicious. Their house chardonnay is good also. Not overly priced. Would go back again.

Run in the other direction. This place should be shut down. The food was dreadful and halfway through my dish a roach crawled across the floor only a few feet from my table and the asian man who owns the place killed it like nothing was wrong. Horrible experience, obviously I stopped eating, payed the bill and left immediately.

OK guys, so the owners are asian.....get over it. It'a a great local restaurant, the carbonara was really good, the pesto sauce is yummy, the putanesca was nice and fresh. And yes, the Sangria is also a good buy...very yummy. No, not traditional italian.....but hey, good food!!

This place could be a neighborhood gem but the menu is well out dated and never changes,the decore has a lot to be desired,I would go back if they changed the menu every once in a while to keep up with the seasons,oh and get a chief instead of a cook

Our dining experience in this "restaurant" was just the worst we ever had. The service was terrible and the food completely tasteless. How they stay in business is a big question. Will never go back there again. Should have gone to McDonalds, across the street. This was a big mistake.

I didn't even want to give this place one star, the experience there this afternoon was THAT bad. I will never return to this place again. It's a joke and I cannot believe it hasn't been shut down! First off, the host/waiter was dressed to go to the gym (t shirt, shorts and sneakers), not to work the front end... More
