Gnocchi with Pesto

Home made gnocchi!! Just like in Italy. The sauce is heavenly - creamy, but not heavy, and super flavourful.

Lasagna Classica

I brought my mother here when she came to visit and we loved our meal. She had the classic lasagna which she allowed me to taste. It was magnificent. The sauce was so flavorful but not overly salty or acidic. I had lamb chops off of a specials menu and was not disappointed. Service was excellent. We will definitely be back.

Linguine Neri

I don't eat a lot of pasta. There are few things I don't eat, and pasta is one I don't go out of my way for. But this linguine neri? Good lord, this dish changed my life. I had a personal renaissance. The sauce was warm and comforting, like being wrapped in a big hug by a loved one, the noodles were savory and toothsome, and the seafood was delicious. Somehow, despite it being seafood forward, ingredients wise, it wasn't nearly as "fishy" smelling as you might think. I had this dish yesterday and I've already started dreaming about it. This has rocketed to first place as my "desert island" meal. Try it. You'll thank me later.

I'm from Italy, and the Arancini dish made me feel like home. The Fontina cheese was incredible.

Fettuccine Alla Montanara

This is steaming hot pasta tossed with a delicate mix of mushrooms and peas. The sauce of brandy brings it all together. Wonderful.

Melanzane All' Amalfitana

Probably the best Melanzane I have had in North America. Traditional, classic Italian home made style, just like in Italy. So good!!

Cioppino was spot on! Load with fresh seafood. Mussels and clams were very fresh. Brought spice on the side to allow for extra spicy if desired. Warm, fresh bread with spicy marinara. Staff very friendly. Excellent option for traditional food in Little Italy. I would definitely recommend to anyone.

Vegan and Gluten Free Ravioli

We drove all the way down from Orange County for this dish. It's the most amazing ravioli and we highly recommend for anyone. We can't get anything like this at home. We come every year. Xo

Baked Goat Cheese

Outstanding appetizers in every way. Creamy goat cheese with the garnishments serve with amazing bread. I recommend with a red wine.
