Good Italian food, friendly venue.

Good place to dine for Italian food lovers, particularly meat-eaters and seafood fans. Good vegetarian pizza and salad options. Nice service, quite noisy at peak dining times.

A decent place for dinner, but some clientele could be marginal. The wine list is good, the angel hair pasta was good, but it needed red pepper to make it exciting as well. The staff is attentive and polite. I would go there, if I like to have simple no fuss dinner, however our dinner for two couples was not... More

This place is perfect if you are craving fantastic Italian food. Very authentic. I really enjoyed the atmosphere. You are made to feel like family while eating in a richly appointed restaurant. It is cozy, clean and opulent at the same time. I have been here several times with my family when I go back to CA to visit and... More

This is a very nice place to eat. We started out with Fritto Misto then had the Pickled Beet Salad. I had the Scaloppini Di Vitello and my husband had the Lamb Osso Bucco. Everything was done very nicely. We would go back again. The service was good.

The restaurant was picked by our hosts. Its food did not disappoint. The Bruschetta just right and the Scaloppini Di Vitello very tender and coffee excellent. The service was prompt and efficient. The restaurant seating was a bit tight and although i didn't tune in on adjacent conversations it was certainly possible it one tried. The over all ambiance for... More

crowdy place for sure but worth going! Italian cuisine is good, wine selection is well balanced. Count for 50-60 $ per person for appertizer/main Course + glass of wine
