This place reminds me of my Aunt Lena’s basement the week before Christmas – food everywhere, and an aroma that transports you to another world.

Passing through the deli section before you get to the restaurant is a gastronomic nirvana. I love the cheese hanging from the ceiling along with the dehydrated fish waiting to be soaked. It reminds me of my uncle Strimps’ car that had a similar smell. I miss him.

Then there’s the food – they actually use garlic! So many “Italian” restaurants have forgotten that real Italians LOVE garlic. The sausage and raviolis alone could end wars. Relaxing at a dimly lit table under some old statue or picture, I am always looking to see if Paulie Walnuts or Tony Soprano will walk through the door and order meatballs.

The service is great and the wait staff efficient. I cry tears of joy when they get real busy and everybody starts shouting at each other. It’s like home.

The price won’t set you back either. You can get a gallon of Chianti cheap. So get a couple on your way out.


I LOVE this place. It's a great deal and so yummy!! Everyone's always friendly and the food is to die for! I always end up getting a pizza, eating what I can and take the rest home for later. Might sound weird to say but the pizza is great cold too! Haha. Enjoy!
