This is my favorite Italian restaurant in Livingston. Mom and I go there often. We've found their food to be consistently delicious. Their portions are generous and their prices are decent. We've never had to wait very long for a table. No complaints at all..

Very good neighborhood Italian restaurant. Pasta is homemade and fresh daily. BYOB. I recommend the pappardelle in veal ragu sauce. The parking lot is small but you can park across the street or next door.

None that I am aware of. The prices however, were reasonable without using a coupon, especially if you take advantage of the early bird specials.
