We visited on a Sunday night. Specials were great and portions generous. Homemade bread and salads were included with the meal. Excellent veal and the homemade sausage was outstanding. Prices were very reasonable. Can’t wait to go back!

Newly remodeled as a result of Ida, dining room looks great. Food was excellent as always. I had the special Veal Chop with spinach, melted cheese, shitake mushrooms and a delicious cream sauce, buttery tender and so delicious. My wife had a seafood pasta special with loads of prawns. She absolutely loved it.

Food was very good…it was all fresh and came out hot. Was not aware this was a BYOB restaurant, so was disappointed I could not have a glass of wine with my dinner. This should be highlighted more so out of town individuals are more aware.

Service was good but was disappointed that I had to wait to ask someone to bring me Parmesan cheese and that it was not automatically offered.

Overall a nice place to dine and good food.

This familiar local restaurant has really upped their game, with a series of outstanding special dishes each evening. One of these was the seared halibut fillet, which was delicious with a lobster and tomato cream sauce. Outdoor seating along the wide sidewalk was very pleasant on a nice evening. This restaurant has a few other features that I like, including being BYOB and having a printed list of specials with prices.

Cannot wait to go back and try everything on the menu. There are so many homemade options to choose from, I want to try them all. They offer the regular menu along with specials. The owner comes to every table, explains the menu and is completely willing to adjust the heat level or make exceptions if you can't eat a certain ingredient. The homemade sausage and homemade pasta are truly delicious.

The owner is very personable and made the dinner extra special for us. He allowed us to sit and catch up without rushing us out.

I cannot say enough good things and I highly recommend.

Food is always exquisite. This is one of my favorite restaurants (Italian or not), hands down! The quality of the food is always outstanding, the ingredients are always fresh, and the preparation allows the natural flavors of the food to shine through. The owner always takes the time to speak with each customer... you can tell that cooking is his passion as it transcends over to each meal. We moved out of Hillsborough almost 2 years ago and still come back here when we can.

We enjoyed a delicious dinner at Caffe Piazza. The calamari was yummy and a very big portion. Salad and salad dressing were yummy. Our dinners were both delicious- veal Madeira and eggplant rollatini . Our 16 year old waiter was fabulous! 5 Stars!!
