This is my go to local Italian! Tony runs the place with abundant charm and a wicked laugh! I always have the baby chicken or veal or anything with truffles, which they are very generous with! Their speciality is the Como Lario risotto which is wrapped in Parma ham .i have held many business lunches here, taken the private room for parties or taken over half the restaurant for ladies lunches!...more
I have always felt the waiters want you to leave as quickly as possible they hover too much! rush you though ..... The owner Tony is great, but if he isn't around his staff don't live up to his ethos. the food is ok... some mostly the pasta dishes far superior to others. Lasagnes, gnocchi, risotto como lario. in general a decent italian family restauarant where you feel a little too rushed.more
It is a decent Italian restaurant, nothing to write home about, but if you want a warm meal in a cold evening, it will do. I had the Tagliolini in spicy crab sauce. It was quite delicious.
The services were nice. The owner suggested the daily special dessert and we didn't like it. He was nice enough to change it to something else and not charge us for it.more
A gem! Eaten here many times. Never disappoints. Owner, Tony and his crew are attentive and warm. The lasagna is mouthwatering. But the Risotto Como Lario is the best ever...tonight we had osso bucco, lasagna, broccoli and a Guado Al Melo (Bolgheri) wine. Don't miss this family run Italian jewel.more

First, we sat down and found bread sticks and olives at our table. Unfortunately, there was already an olive stone on the plate, as if someone had already been picking through the olives. Yuck!
We put that aside, and got to...more
