The atmosphere is very quaint and close to some of the restaurants we visited in Italy (and "little Italy" in NYC)
The service was great too. We didn't really have to wait to have our drinks refilled, yet the waitress wasn't hovering.
We went around 8PM, so it wasn't crowded, but you could tell everyone was having a great time.
The food....DELICIOUS!!!!!! The bread was warm and fresh.
We had the fried ravioli for our appetizer. It was extremely tasteful and the sauce was as if it was just made!
The salad was wonderfully flavored; although my hubby doesn't care for the oil/vinegar type, but I enjoyed it very much. It was not the normal iceburg lettuce either. Oh and they had shavings of cheese in it...yummy!
I had the Eggplant Rollitini Al Forno. All I can say is OH MY GOSH! EXCELLENT! The size portion was enough to feed two (ooooh lunch tomorrow). I also had a side order of penne pasta. I am VERY fussy about the tenderness of my pasta and have had to send my dinner back at many restaurants...NOT THIS ONE! I explained how I wanted it to the waitress (like I normally do) and it was EXACTLY like I wanted it! BRAVO!
My hubby had the Homemade Gnocchi with sausage & pesto sauce. It was VERY good! He really enjoyed his meal too. It was a decent size portion and he also took some home.
We had NO room for dessert!!
We will definitely will be returning for another meal. You can NOT go wrong...go...enjoy....MANGIA…MANGIA!!
