My Dear Friends from Birmingham took us to eat at this restaurant in May. The atmosphere was great and lent itself to some good conversation with our friends that we don't get an opportunity to see but a couple of times a year...I was torn between the eggplant Parmesean and the spaghetti and... read more

Outstanding food and great service. The portions were huge. We were there with our whole family and the owner offered to take pictures for us on her phone and texted them to us. Really couldn't have had a better experience.

Friday night and we're home at 9pm and we chatted with friends outside the restaurant for at least 20 minutes. We were meeting another couple at this restaurant for what would be our second visit. The first time in December. We arrived ahead of the other couple and are informed that we cannot be seated until they arrive. Other restaurants... More

Great tasty Italian menu. Small restaurant. Be sure to get reservations as I doubt if walk-ins can be seated very often.

The restaurant is small so you feel the personal attention. I loved the dim lighting and coziness. The meatball appetizer was amazing and the perfect size for two to share. My husband had the veal parmigiana and I had the veal piccata. We agreed we liked the parm better but both were very good. Had the chocolate mousse for dessert... More

It was by far the one of the best restaurants in Alabama. The food and the service was amazing. Definitely worth trying!

I went with several family members. My Homemade Ravioli was fabulous, the best white sauce I have ever had. The ravioli was stuffed with mozzarella cheese and heirloom tomatoes. The Mussels in a garlic Rue were also excellent.

We showed up at five on a Saturday as we did not have a reservation. We were fortunate to get into this outstanding restaurant. It is very small seating approximately 30, so I recommend a reservation. The place is dimly lit with a lovely ambiance and is great for a special occasion. We were seated promptly and received wonderful service... More

The service is very good at this restaurant. It's a little on the expensive side. I ordered the Shrimp Scampi and I didn't care for the seasoning. The others in my party liked their dishes.

There's something about a small Italian restaurant. They seem more cozy, the food a little better and the service a little more personal. This place was all that and more. The only drawback is it is very small so get there early or make a reservation. I suggest you call either way.
