Most authentic Italian restaurant I have ever been to. The food tasted homemade and delicious, I even started to crave it again the next day. Service was great, everyone was welcoming and kind. Ambiance was lively, the place reminded me a lot of the restaurants in Europe. Overall AMAZING.

Great experience - pasta was amazing. Bronzino was not as good, stick to pasta.

The food was okay but the service was rushed and not very friendly. The restaurant was so small it was uncomfortable to be in there long which was fine because the staff was rushing you out anyway. They also couldn’t find my reservation and kept saying it might have been at the other place before finally finding it.

Wonderful and relaxing time with the best Italian food- the sauce the bread the oils and the fresh pasta which is a big enough portion for two on a romantic date. Save so much room for the best Cannoli outside of Sicily. Would for sure return to this treasure chest of delightful cuisine and wonderful hosts in service.

Great little place! The food and service were fantastic. We liked the fact that it’s very small but may not be for everyone but for us it is always about the food and service. Both were exceptional!

Was expecting more given the ratings and reviews I read on Open Table. We started with the eggplant parm, which was served close to room temperature and was still pretty good. We had the lobster pasta and the ravioli - again, both were good, but not great. Best part of the meal were the gratis canolis. Overall, food was disappointing and while we were more than willing to sacrifice dining comfort and the incredibly “cozy” dining accommodations, we didn’t feel that the food was worth the experience.

Incredible food! My only complaint (and it is NOT a big one) is that we were seated at a very small table, squished against a wall on one side and very close to the table beside ours (like barely enough room to get between them and I am not a large person). But that is not that big a deal, considering how wonderful the food and service was.

It is very very small restaurant that you have to silde your table to sit. But it is really worth it to try.

Positives: quaint/small environment (if you like that and we did), pasta was excellent, wine was good.
Negatives: risotto was abit expensive and not very good (just rice and a few mussels) without that much taste. Service could have been more attentive and welcoming.

We loved the restaurant with its tiny space, nice food and great ambiance. Noise levels can be high though due to the amount of people crammed up in such a small room. Still would recommend strongly

The place is super small! So small the waiter kept telling people to go around the corner to their other location lol. The food was good and the bread is delicious. All the waiters are funny and very friendly! True Italians! Which is nice to see, But the menu in my opinion was a little boring. I heard the waiter next to us listing off a ton of specials, so when my waiter came he never offered any specials and when I asked what was the specials, he just named one thing. Over all! Cute place and loved the ambience ... just wish the menu had better choices.
