Dark woods and warm earth tones create a soothing ambiance in the dining room and lounge of this multi-generational, family-owned and -operated bastion of Italian-American culture and cuisine. Families are welcome, attire is casual and the mood is authentically homey. Let clan patriarch Ernie adjust your attitude with a well-shaken cocktail and friendly conversation at the bar.
Matriarch Marlene brings a lifetime of tinkering with traditional Italian recipes to the table, resulting in sumptuous sauces – including her signature “Mama’s Sunday Gravy” – homemade specialties such ravioli, manicotti and gnocchi, grilled pizza, entrees starring seafood, chicken and more, and must-taste desserts. A catering menu allows any personal or business occasion to turn into an Italian feast.
Q&A with Marlene deLorenzo, chef/co-owner

I’m always worried that people have enough food and don’t go hungry! That’s something I learned from my mother and grandmother.
