the baked clams were dry. the chicken marsala had no taste. the bread and wine were great. i was surprised the food was so bland. give a few more potatoes on your entrees'.

Food was fresh and delicious from the shrimp scamp with risotto and the pork scaloppine special with kale. The Italian cheese cake was light and wonderful. A fantastic Italian meal for a great price. This is the real deal old world Italiano style. Highly recommended!

Me and my family live in manhattan but we gladly stop by anytime we are in Brooklyn; they have the best grilled octopus ever! Nothing beats charcoal; it's not chewy or dry like some places; it's not swimming in oil either. Few Greek places come close, but none tops it. Rest of the menu is ok, can't leave the place without trying the cheesecake, I can imagine a "nana" In the kitchen; that's how home made everything feels. Casual, no snotty manhattan attitude and great value. If I go to an Italian food place and see it packed with Italians, it's a good sign. Btw it feels like going to one of those low-key mafia restaurants from the movies with the red-squared tableclothes, it only adds to the charm

I have lived in this neighborhood for over 25 years, and I consider myself to have a very discerning taste for good Italian food. My family and I have been coming here repeatedly for at least 15 years, for family celebrations, casual dining, as well as first dates =) The food is great, consistent, and affordable. My all-time favorite is the Pizza Speciale Del Colosseo -- it's got, mushrooms, sliced ham and sliced hot dogs on it. Might sound a little strange, but I've literally been ordering it for 15 years and I have never been disappointed. If anyone ever asks me for a recommendation on a good Italian restaurant in Bensonhurst, or all of Brooklyn, for that matter, this is always my #1 go-to place. I just can't say enough about it!

I love this place. I feel as though I am dining in Italy when i come here. Great pizza and superb pasta - I love their Bolognese - the best i've ever had - (maybe better than my own!)

Consistently good food, accommadates requests not on menu, great antipasti and pastas. Very good value. Always stop in when in Brooklyn.
