Love this place. If you visit Mon-Thursday from 4-6, you can take advantage of their many specials. What it lacks In ambience and decor, it makes up in taste. The food is delicious. Everything tastes fresh and the portions are abundant. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Kids fare is healthier than your run of the mill Kraft Mac and... More

This place is nit in the main stream area of Pawtucket, but I found it to be worth the trip. The food was flavorful, prices were fair and the service was very good. Am glad I found the place and will be back

Love this place since it opened. It use to be BYOB, but now they have a bar so you are out of luck. Great pasta and meat dishes, always packed and friendly staff. Take out is great there too. Can't say enough about this place, Federal Hill quality food at reasonable prices.

Heard a lot of good buzz about this restaurant. I finally had the chance to try it. It is a very small place, seats 40-50 people tops. Food is very good but for this area it is average. I say this because there are many Italian restaurants, especially on Federal Hill that are better. Prices compare to that also. It... More

I'm not sure what the fuss is about with this restaurant. Many people have recommended it, so it must be me but I thought it was just average. Certainly nothing unusual on the menu and only one vegetarian pasta (puttenesca) which I love but this sauce was way to bland for my taste. My friends did enjoy their food, but... More

I normally don't write about the food that we eat, but this restaurant, has the best Butternut Squash soap that we have ever tasted. The food and the wait service was excellent, and the prices are resonable.

Limited parking, seating and menu, but the meals are great. A bit pricey but you're paying for quality. This is not the kind of place where you plan a quiet date. Small table are close together, but you must try it! BYOB

Always a great time when we come here. Have been visiting since before they had a liquor license, which makes things a little easier.

Wonderful food, very small but cozy. Service is fantastic. They even have an early bird special for only 12.99, what a deal and it is regular sized portions. My husband and I shared the mushroom appetizer which was absolutely fabulous Would definitely recommend. Parking is a little difficult but it worth parking down the block and walking. Be careful it... More
