Great food, the apps were delicious. The wine selection was varied and put together well. The food took longer than it should of, but overall I was very pleased

Had such a great experience here. My favorite go-to wasn’t on the menu but the chef hooked me up anyway. Love that it’s byob! I’m giving it a 4 just because I did feel it was overpriced.

Four of us dined there Saturday evening. The food was good, not spectacular, but good. They definitely give you the impression that the customer is there, not to be served, but to be impressed by the staff. A simple request to substitute pasta for risotto...More

Description
Zagat review: Now at the quarter-century mark, this dependable (if hard-to-find) Freehold Italian BYO maintains its old-world ways with a classic menu of quality items served by an excellent tuxedoed team. The elegant decor lends it special-occasion status and bargain prix fixe specials keep costs under control.
