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.

Stopped here for dinner on the recommendation of a good friend and were pleased. The place was fancier than I expected. Salads were fresh and cold with a good vinaigrette. I ordered the Marsala which was very good-loaded with mushrooms and served with tender asparagus and fingerling potatoes. My husband had the lobster ravioli in a pink sauce. I have... More

We read the reviews on TA and everyone had something great to say about this restaurant, so we went and glad we did. The ambiance was very nice. Outside just before the front door was a fire pit which was a nice touch. We were greeted by a very friendly woman who was the singer accompanied by a man who... More

We dropped in for appetizers during happy hour, and thoroughly enjoyed the food and entertainment. The "appetizers" included steak, lasagna, and lobster raviolis at very reasonable prices. There was a singer and guitarist playing very mellow music, and they were quite personable. Of course, the wine was at happy hour prices and a good value. All in all, this was... More

Stopped here just by chance, and found an elegant restaurant with excellent food and seamless service. Had Shrimp Scampi with a lemon sauce so tasty that you felt like licking the plate. Then a Filleto di Manzo, a piece of meat like an oldfashioned tournedeau, a cream sauce with cognac, aspargus. The meat was perfect, so was the aspargus, the... More

We loved everything about this place, the food was great and the service was extraordinary. We had a reservation for 16 guys and they gave us a private room just for us. We left with a happy tummy and a big smile in our faces :)

This place is packed with locals on weekends. I would highly recommend reservations before 7:30pm . The vocalist, Sylvia reminds me of Miss Kitty (of Gunsmoke). She gives you a big welcome and seems to sing right to you. Beautiful voice. Her partner is a man with a mission to play several instruments and he does.... with with a lot... More
