 Good comfort food in large portions. Veal dish was very good but the shrimp dish seemed a bit overdone. Sausage and peppers were fine. Service was attentive, prompt, and pleasant.

 We usually have take out so I really can't rate the waitress service. This is my favorite restaurant on Franklin Ave. They have the best fettuchini carbonara. Great fried calamari and antiposto. Again, we usally have take out. I have heard the waitresses are a little rude and snooty. Why we have take out? We don't like the ambience of the restaurant. I'd rather bring it home and enjoy the food home in comfort.

 Not the worst food italian food in the world but the worst on Franklin Avenue. If anything, their food is 5 Stars compared to their shabby service. The waitresses are horrible and i've even caught them staring at us for long periods of time and for no reason. Also, everytime I needed the waitress, I noticed she was on her cell phone. I gave it a couple of trys but found the service immature and the food moderate at best.

 Not a bad deal. They don't have a bar, but they do serve wine and beer. The two times I ordered wine it was horribly watered down. Save your money.

The food is pretty good for the price. They make a wonderful shrimp Sebby and veal Sebby. We had an office dinner and everyone thought the food was great.

It's a good place to bring a large family. The prices drop dramatically during the week.

One experience was ruined because the guests at a private party had half a dozen screaming kids running around and management shrugged their shoulders when I complained. The disruption spoiled what could have been a nice dinner.
