We have seen the sign for years and as it is set back from the main street, we always forgot about it. We made reservations and the host was a really nice lady, very cordial and turned out to be the grandmother of the manager....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.
