I have dined at this place 6 or 7 times now and the food has always been terrific. It's Italian food and they also make their own brick oven pizza. I haven't tried the pizza yet, but everything else we have had has been great. They have a calamari appetizer that comes in it's own thin bread basket, the gnocchi (when available) is very light and pillowy, and the desserts are right on the mark and they are very generous with their flan and creme brulee. The waitstaff are very friendly and helpful and always have a smile on their faces.

If their is a downside it's that the seating/spacing of tables is a little cramped and their is usually a wait of 20 minutes if you don't have a reservation.

Parking is a pain in the ass as well, but they have a valet if you can't find a spot.

It's on Woodhaven a couple of blocks from Dry Harbor.

Good food, nice people.
