    Old-style place, big plates with lots of food on em. It's usually busy on a Friday night, so book early or go for the bar. There are some real characters on the wait staff

    Loud Italian atmosphere, the wait is usually pretty long because they don't take reservations, but the food is good. Nothing too special

    Average service, average food Food was so forgettable that I don't remember what I had last week. I think there's better Italian food elsewhere...

    Best Veal Parmigiana ever! Love the newly remodeled place, lighter. Waiters have been there for ages and most have good senses of humor. Be prepared to wait for up to an hour, but the bar in the back has nice seating and sports on.

    Old School Italian Joint It is old school. Very comfortable surroundings. I ate at the bar and had good service, however the bar tender was not the best at menu knowledge. Ordered the antipasta app. and meat and mushroom sauce on spag. with a meatball. Only 1 (one) button mushroom was in the sauce! Sauce was otherwise average, and the pasta was cooked al dente which was great. The meatball was sizable, lean and tender, but lacked a crispy texture on the outside which would have made it better. I would try the place again, but maybe the veal would be a better choice. Bartender did try and serve the main dish before the appetizer, but realized then he switched them around.............
