Great Italian joint. Old school feel. Chicken Parm was really good. Their brick oven pizza is delicious. Great draft beer selection too. Wasn’t expecting to find such good Italian food on the island!

We ordered penne alla arrabbiata (it is supposed to be spicy) and to our surprise the sauce was sweet with a hint of spice. Needless to say we send it back and asked to add a lot more spice. It came back more spicy but...More
