Overall - nice experience. We sat outside with our 3 young kids and they were accommodating. I had the Mafalde Cavolfiore and it was amazing. My wife had the linguini clams and she was underwhelmed to be honest. Kids were all happy :)

Nice quiet dinner outdoors late Saturday evening. Food was excellent, even if the menu was somewhat limited. Tasty, fresh fried calamari, chicken and veal were both well done. Very friendly service, and after 8:00 Arthur Ave. is fairly quiet, even on a Saturday.

This place was super. Parking one block over was easy. The waiter was a super nice young man. The hostess was quick acting and quite attractive. The food was hearty but not heavy. Would go back again many times.

The food was good, but a little underwhelming. Nice atmosphere. Friends and I shared the fried calamari, baked clams (which were whole, not chopped), penne vodka, burrata, side of broccoli rabe, and then cheesecake for dessert. At the end of our meal, we received a limoncello shot "on the house." I would give the staff and atmosphere 4 stars, but the food overall a 3.5.

The Albanian waiter, Klajdi, was wonderful and he split the meals at the table for myself and two friends. He was friendly and attentive, pouring our wine as soon as our glass needed it. However, this restaurant did not give an authentic Italian feel that I expected other than the outside seating area, which was nice.

Fried Calamari: 8/10 - Crunchy, small, fresh, and delicious
Baked Clams Oreganata: 7/10- A little dry, but surprisingly an actual whole clam rather than chopped
Penne Ala Vodka: 7/10- Very heavy, filling, al dente, and WAY too heavy on the scallions
Burrata: 7/10- semi-melted over chopped eggplant-not that flavorful
Broccoli Rabe: 8/10 nice portion for a side
Cheesecake: 7/10- not that fresh
House Cabernet Sauvignon Wine: 9/10 - full-bodied, smooth red wine

Had very good Memorial Day Lunch at Arthur Avenue Fiasco. Everything was good. Three appetizers: Prosciutto and mozzarella, meat balls and fried calamari..\ Main courses were very good too. Lasagna, noodle type pasta with Bolognese Sauce and Veal Parmigiana w/ penne. For desert we had 3 cannoli which fresh and were crisp and delicious. The cabernet wine was good as well. I would recommend this restaurant which also had good service to top it off.

A good meal! Well prepared and excellent tasting. Tiramisu was great tasting but...I found a small slither of plastic while eating it. While it may have come from my toothbrush, it was the third course for me. Also...there was an odor that wafted through the beautiful night time air. I thought it was fertilizer that was right next to me in the flower pot. The waiter/manager said that it was not-but coming from the sewage/meat market next door. Despite all this, we will probably return and recommend to friends. I wish all restaurants happy returns! Good food!

Everything was excellent. Due to COVID, we dined outside so the noise level was louder than an indoor experience. The food was excellent and the wait staff were gracious. My gluten-free request was generously accommodated.
