Dine in our beautiful Private Room with its own bar and stereo system. The room can accommodate up to 70 guests. Customizable menus start at $25 per person and go up to $45 per person. No room charge applies, and you can bring your own wine (no corking fee) or select from our extensive collection of imported Italian wines.

Giancarlo is my name. Here is a little information about us: Our food is as pure, sincere, and genuine as mountain spring water. No fusion, no gimmicks, no shenanigans. We remain true to the artisan way of cooking, brought to America by my mother, Clelia, featured in many newspapers and magazines for her award-winning recipes. In the 1950s and '60s, in Rome, she cooked for many famous people in the film industry. Her favorite pupil for 15 years, Ugo, is still in the kitchen cooking her delicious recipes for you to enjoy.

P.S. In 2001 I told my mother, "Things are changing. The restaurants are now doing food designing, color combinations, etc. etc." She looked at me and said, "If people want to see designs and colors, they should go to a museum, not a restaurant." And that's my mother: never makes long speeches. Enjoy your food.
