We went to this restaurant to celebrate our friends wedding anniversary. The ambiance was very nice, the wait staff did an excellent job and the food was great. 3 of us had pasta dishes and the 4th had fish. All of the meals were fantastic and we followed it up with their homemade dessert. I had the tiramisu. It was... More

So I went here last month a little against my will because I have been to their other restaurants before. I have to say I was really nicely surprised and happy with the quality and the authenticity of the meal. The staff was super pleasant and the evening was quite relaxed. I had a veal dish which was a little... More

Love the entertainment here and the food is reasonable priced and tasty. Having stayed (a lot lately) in Italy, I have to say that the dishes served here are "heavier" (e.g. thicker Pizza crust) than you would get in Italy....in ways you can say the preparation has been adjusted somewhat - maybe to the taste of the locals here. That's... More

Stopped in for lunch on our drive up the coast and we were very pleased with the food, service, wine list and general ambiance. Plus they are dog friendly! We sat on their front patio, not the most beautiful view, but the Caesar Salad and the beet salads were very good and the pizza margarita we split was excellent! The... More

The restaurant looked very appealing from the street, but we were not happy when we got in. The service was very poor. My Fettuccini was one big lump and my wife's crab cakes were on the burned side. Our Server was very very busy so she really didn't have time for us and the folks were upset with their meal;... More
