One step inside and you feel as if you stepped into the set of an Italian cooking show.  Our large open kitchen is the main focal point of the room with peripheral tables, bar seating and an overhead reflecting mirror so that you can observe the culinary techniques of Chef Giuseppe and his friendly experienced staff cooking your authentic Italian meal.

We are sure that the food and atmosphere will transport you directly to Italy for the most authentic Italian experience this side of the Atlantic. Although we state that we accommodate walk-ins, reservations are strongly recommended, we don’t want to disappoint anyone by turning them away.

Come and enjoy our Oh Mamma Mia Dinner Show Menu. Benvenuti alla mia cucina where we welcome you as a family member. This is an authentic Italian regional menu; all the preparations are cooked to order. You will dine as if you were in Italy. All the recipes have been made the same way for hundreds of years. We will not alter a recipe nor offer Fettuccini Alfredo or Veal Parmigiana, for those dishes there are plenty of restaurants that serve Italian American cuisine, we serve authentic Italian only.
