  • 5 star review  Exceptional service and wonderfully authentic Italian fare with fresh organic ingredients. Had the Arugula Pesto Shrimp Gnocchi. Very light and flavorful. Would definitely return to try their pizza or pasta!

  • 5 star review  The service here is unbelievable. We had a very good experience. The food was fresh, tasty, very well prepared, and the dishes appealing to the eye. The wait staff were well read about the menu and very friendly. They also give you the entire dining experience. I must say I am very picky and we went back. We had a divine chicken pizza with fresh basil on it. We were short on time and couldn't relax, but the staff served us a very nice lunch. The first time we went the place was packed. And you could barely get a parking spot. At no time did we feel rushed. They also sell fresh olive oil made from a country one of their dad lives in. Great food, great staff. Great restaurant. The acoustics are a little loud. That is the only drawback I can say. When you're having such a great experience who cares about a little noise right?! Enjoy a great meal.

  • 5 star review  Dined there for dinner on the 30th of April. Wonderful experience. Food was great, our waiter Jeffery was extremely friendly and was very attentive to my youngest daughter. The owner stopped by for quality assurance and we enjoyed the evening. Ordered the PEI mussels, 4 cheese pizza, a couple of pasta dishes and all were great. Desserts were delicious, especially the moussed cheesecake. Will definitely eat there again.

  • 5 star review  The food was awesome. Our waiter was awesome just a little pushy when my husband didn't want to any food. If your new to the area and want to pay expensive prices this is your place. The food is awesome just way above my budget. I walked a mile just to eat here. That's why I ate. A few people in the area told us about this place!

Great costumer service and even better food, my boyfriend and I had a lovely dinner with people who actually cared about how we were doing the entire time! not only did the food taste real and authentic, but we were treated with nothing but kindness and positivity. We will definitely be coming back and passing along the name to family and friends!

  • 5 star review  Man..... where to begin!? Well to start..... the food was amazing.... it was fresh and tasted delicious. The place was super clean. The service was excellent, the staff members and the owner treated us like family. We just moved to this area, and came to this restaurant to celebrate my daughter's birthday and I can safely say that I know I will be coming back here with my family more. Most importantly...... This by far is one of the best pizza and calzone I ever had, not just in Connecticut, but anywhere (and I consider myself a Pizza critic and a pizza junkie lol) If you are in the area..... eat at this restaurant, you will have your money's worth.

    thumb Edwin Van Halen

    thumb Vanassa Sebastian
  • 5 star review  Just like dining in Italy. Great service, an emphasis on fresh ingredients and a pride in everything that comes out of the kitchen. The chicken and risotto was juicy tender comfort food goodness.
