Food was delicious! We had the chicken parm and shrimp scampi. The restaurant is tiny but has an authentic vibe. Service was good and food came quickly. The prices are fair for the amount of food you are given. We'll definitely come back!

Worst pasta whit eggplant and shrimp , young server very arrogant, he said that is the way they cook in Italy. Not truth i am from Italy and know better. We had to pay the full check. Really poor service.

See the bun then run! The bunned haired waiter never once apologized for making us wait a hour for a couple of chicken dishes. It got to the point where I was looking into 4th St deli's delivery service to our table. Seriously cavalier attitude towards kind service.

Food was above average, nothing special. Service was good, not great. Lots of history. Definitely worth going to.

Not at all what I expected. Food was ok. Service needs improvement. Veal was overcooked and tough. Overpriced for the quality you get. Would never go back.

I took 25 Co workers there. Great food, great wine, great service, reasonable prices. I've been there 5 times. I live in Buffalo. One of my favorite places. Highly recommended.

Went for Mother's Day this year with a group of 8 and it was good. Nothing was crazy over the top expensive and the portions were a good size. Everyone in my family love the history behind this restaurant

Went for dinner this evening. Food was good, the service was bad. The waiter was extremely rude.
