This is not just another Italian restaurant. It’s a dining destination! You can even get a table in the kitchen with early reservations. Or if you are coming with a group of people, reserve the Godfather room. As for the decor, the walls are filled with photos of famous Italians and candid photos of daily life in Italy. Great-tasting Italian cuisine is served family-style by friendly servers who are more than willing to help you select what to order.
A great starter is the antipasto salad loaded with lettuce, olives, peppers, onions, prosciutto and Gorgonzola cheese. Be sure to ask for an order of their delicious garlic bread!
Highly recommended are their cheese-stuffed ravioli and four cheese pizza, as well as a wonderful variety of pizzas and pastas. They also have specials nightly. Save room for their homemade cheesecake. Definitely dine here!
