Had such a great experience here. My favorite go-to wasn’t on the menu but the chef hooked me up anyway. Love that it’s byob! I’m giving it a 4 just because I did feel it was overpriced.

Zagat review: Now at the quarter-century mark, this dependable (if hard-to-find) Freehold Italian BYO maintains its old-world ways with a classic menu of quality items served by an excellent tuxedoed team. The elegant decor lends it special-occasion status and bargain prix fixe specials keep costs under control.
