Food was outstanding! Highly recommend the stuffed dates appetizer as well as their amazing homemade sausage with pasta. Tip: Bring a sweater or jacket as it was chilly inside, although they did slightly adjust the temperature when asked.

Overall great selection of apps and entrees to please everyone. The hardest is to make a choice because the food is delicious. We all end up splitting up our dinners so we can enjoy it all. Service is excellent and courteous. We continue to support year round.

Consistently great food, fresh hot and delicious!
If you are a foodie and appreciate well prepared food you will go crazy over this restaurant ! The portions are generous in the presentation Spot on. Love the Decor especially the little 1940s table lamps. It has a great vibe, reminds me of an old school dinner club, Just stunning! We had three amazing dishes. First entree was cod with white lump crab meat. Second entrée was on a bed of fluffy mashed potatoes and the third dish was mine and it was scrumptious. Send tender reveal topping eggplant with tomato sauce. What a great test. I started my meal with mussels that had the best flavor I’ve had in a long time. My sister-in-law had a wonderful crisp Caesar salad.
No dessert this time we were very satisfied with no room for more! Can’t wait to return

Absolutely delicious dinner..I had the veal which was excellent, my husband had the country shrimp which he loved and my fatherinlaw LOVED his eggplant parmigiana! And he’s very picky!
Feel like they could at least give you bread for the table like most places do, especially for the prices you’re paying. Overall, it was a great meal!

Great restaurant. Inside and outdoor seating, nice ambience, service very timely, appropriate. Food was fantastic, while it has an Italian feel, the variety of menu options not being all traditional Italian was extremely refreshing. Food not overly heavy, good portion sizes and great flavor. Overall a great BYOB.

Our party of four had two appetizers, the tomato bisque and Caesar salad, and for entrees had the salmon, pasta and sausage, and the short ribs. The bisque and salad were outstanding. Both the salmon and pasta were very good, with the pasta being generous enough portions for both men to take home the extra. The short ribs were a little disappointing. I had had them before at this restaurant and while the taste was really very good, a large section of fat in the middle was not meant to be eaten. We will most likely be back again, but the short ribs won’t be my choice.

One of best places on island. Great value. BYOB. have been multiple times. Some of my favorites are the meatball appetizer, the burrata appetizer and date appetizer. The burrata last night came on a roasted eggplant bed that was delicious and generous . For entrees, their short rib is amazing. They have a great salmon. The veal dish is fabulous. Honestly, I haven’t disliked anything. They have an amazing pasta with fennel sausage. So generous and tasty. My only comment is their paella is good but not a traditional paella. More like a bouillabaisse. Still delicious though. I am not a fan of flourless chocolate cakes but theirs is amazing.
