The Service: Impeccable The Food: Consistently excellent The Portion Size: Plenty The Ambiance: Attractive, easy going, spacious The Price: Very Reasonable I consider the lasagna to be the test dish for any Italian restaurant. This place makes a great lasagna! We were a party of 6, and all of our food was excellent.

The staff is friendly and attentive from the valets to the owners. We have eaten here several times and always had a wonderful experience. Classic southern Italian appetizers and entrees. Interesting specials on occasion.

I have been here several times and it never disappoints. I have never had a bad dish here. The wine list is superb. Valet parking is complimentary, although there is always plenty of street parking. There are many specials and they recite them to you, but I would prefer if they were also written down, as you cannot remember them,... More

A group of eleven of us ate here for my friend's 40th birthday. The food was remarkable. I had a salad of strawberries and baby tomatoes that was simple and perfect. My friend's mother had the baby kale salad and it was equally delicious with the most fabulous dressing I've ever tasted. My entree was a special for the evening,... More

Parking is almost impossible and thought they would have had valet parking but there was nobody outside nor a sign that indicated it was available. Found out after we were leaving the restaurant that they had valet parking available. We went based on the hype but would not make the journey again. Very crowded, food was just okay and prices...
