Very nice! Greeted warmly. Enjoyed the piano music while eating. Didn't have just the typical Italian fare so it took some time to decide. A tad expensive but worth it.

Love this place. It has been around for a long time. Great service and food. The Caprese Salad is excellent, even as an entree.

I'm visiting the area for business and tried this place two times over two weeks. My first experience was very rubbery calamari and way over-salted chicken. I mentioned the chicken to the server and they didn't seem to either hear or care. Given the generally good reviews and walking distance to my hotel, I tried again. I'm still in the... More

The menu has plenty to offer. Do not get fooled by thinking it is just another Italian Food restaurant. I have been here three times now and the specials a have changed each visit. Plenty of choices and the portions are good. They mix it up and add some combinations that you might shake your head at. TRY IT! If... More

Note this was on a Monday night in an empty restaurant sitting at the bar. The food was good, real good, but not spectacular where you can charge $22 for linguini and clam sauce equivilent to any chain restaurant. My server/bartender carried on a conversation with a couple seated at a table the entire evening over directly over my head.... More

Great wine list and starter selection. The rosemary rolls were delicious!! My chicken was very flavorful but a bit dry. The accompanying mashed potatoes were amazing. The atmosphere was nothing special. It was quite loud, so it was hard to have a private conversation. I wouldn't recommend it for a romantic dinner.

My wife and I found this restaurant while we were waiting to pick up some people at the local airport. It was recommended and we assume that it would just be a really decent restaurant. It turned out that it was one of the nicer restaurants we have enjoyed in the near past. The food was outstanding. Would we go... More

Food & ambiance is exceptional. Lots of business folks having dinner. I would be very comfortable eating there alone if on a business trip.

Ask for Eric as your waiter. He does an excellent job. The food and service is outstanding! Atmosphere is great!

you like Italian, this is a good one. Plates are about $20+ but worth it. Super friendly staff but they know their stuff.
