Delicious and comfortable

It was such a pleasant dining room -- divided simply with partitions, different heights and half walls of brick (beam ceilings) into sections of four or six tables that felt intimate yet gave a nice cohesion to... read more

My wife, her sister and her husband and I enjoyed a good lunch at this restaurant. I can recommend the sole which comes with roast potatoes and vegetables. The others all enjoyed different dishes. Wine by the half carafe was good value. My wife would have liked the air conditioning to be less cold.

This restaurant had great food and service and if you like to eat with the locals and not at a tourist trap this place is for you. Outdoor seating is available and great people watching. We had great conversations with the locals. Reasonable prices.

Had an early dinner here on Sunday afternoon; excellent scallopini dish (many options) and my wife's grilled chicken (pounded flat) was outstanding; excellent grilled vegetables; and good wine offering; would definitely return.

I am not certain how many years this Italian restaurant has been here but it is always consistently great food...! The waiters are professional and also have worked there for a long time and really know what they are doing so service is also attentive and professional... It makes me think of what a real Italian restaurant in Italy would... More

Food that is exceptional and well prepared, and has flavor you may like in the Italian city like system. This restaurant has been recommended to me and as a favor to myself I decided to go there.

The food was awesome; very authentic Italian pasta. Very crowded and noisy on a Saturday night and parking can be an issue.

Wednesday evening, and as usual----full! Service was hasty but efficient. Ambience still colorful and authentic. House reds and white wines are perfect peasant menu pairs. Bruschetta is always yummy----pasta fresh, and the veal dishes will stand up to any in town. Most desserts are house-made and delicious. Love the street-side patio----parking available in the back. Overall, and in one word----... More

This is the most authentic Italian restaurant I have been in for a long time. It seemed like a family business because of the low key attention we received, and the laid back but very serious attention to guests. With an outdoor patio on the busy 17th Avenue, it also has dining room areas that are well kept and separated,... More
