    Great , cordial mgmt. Like a small vibrant trattoria in SIcily. Mista Mare excellent, fennel salad a home style treat , pasta pescatore one of the best I've had. Reasonably priced I'll be back again.

    Great Service... The food was excellent. I had the grilled octopus which was fantastic and a stripe bass which was just as good! If your looking for real Italian this is it!

    Zuppa di pesce is really good. Definitely not typical Brooklyn style. Interesting spices in the thin sauce. Very fresh seafood.

    The old school Italian wears its age well. Chicken Marsala and seafood salad are especially nice.
