Great Italian food-Awesome Patio

Great place for Italian food. We frequently go here for the best food around South Jersey. The new patio outside is great for cocktails and dinner. I have tried many dishes and never had a bad a meal. Antipasto comes with every dinner and the helpings enough for 2 dinners.

Great Happy Hour!

Visited recently with friends for happy hour and really enjoyed ourselves! Happy hour drink prices were great and along with a 2 drink purchase they included a great buffet. Buffet included meatballs and pasta, baked bone-in chicken, chicken fingers, sausage and peppers, hot roast beef, hot roast pork, and pizza! Everything was really tasty and the employees were friendly! I’ll definitely be back! The pizza by the way was incredible!

Very nice experience

They’ve expanded to form an outside garden type space for eating. But even before that wise expansion, the place was quite nice. Such tasty food, nice menu options, they know how to prepare appetizers such as calamari, and of course wines. This is topped of with attentive service. As with most restaurants that I like, I try to only go there infrequently, lest it feel boring.

2 Dinners on the Deck & another get together

We had so much fun out on the deck, on Sunday 4/7, that we went back with friends on 4/13. We had 2 great dinners, and a good time.

Great Food

My husband and I have eaten here several times and we’ve never had a bad meal. On Tuesday you can order a lump crab cake sandwich with fries for $12.00. The crab cake is the best I have ever eaten. Solid crabmeat made into a baseball-size crab cake. Their burgers are freshly made and taste like they were cooked on a charcoal grill. Again, excellent. Dinner comes with an antipasti that is quite flavorful. They have daily specials that you can’t beat.
