Place is quite nice looking and have an extensive menu with traditional dishes (including pizza). Although dishes were OK they were nothing special. Fruite-de-mare Risotto was more paella like than Risotto (too much tomato sauce). Appetizer of "Olives and Shaved Parmesan" had good amount cheese and exactly 6 olives.

We tried a pizza there a few years ago. It had a ready made pizza shell that completely turned us off. Haven't been back.

This place never disappoints! Family dinners, a bunch of friends, girls night out this place fits the bill! We eat there every couple of weeks! Love the food! Italian at its finest! My 13 year old loves the pizza, smokey crust made on a wood fired oven! Fresh tomato pasta is my favorite!

From the moment we entered this lovely upscale restaurant we were pleased! A warm welcome greeted us, as as the pleasing aroma of Italian food wafted our way. We chose to check out the ongoing happy hour that's in the lounge area. My husband decided to order off of the summer special menu (3 course), but I ordered from the... More

This is a very nice restaurant and the service was excellent. Nice for outside dining too. The three of us all had very good meals from beef to seafood.

The happy hour food is very good, good wine selection. There is very limited space for happy hour, so you have to be there very early. The food however was excellent.

Have returned several times since finding this respite of good quality Italian cuisine. Relaxing atmosphere. There is live music provided some evenings. Always gracious welcoming. Comfortable atmosphere. Do take advantage of specials. The bread, the breadsticks, the pizza the 4.95 lasagna. Paired with a salad and pizza it just cant get any better. Return? Again and again.
