We were on our way to the concert at Mountain Winery and needed a place to eat. They seated us outside at a lovely table as we requested. Very attentive service. Great wine suggestions for the steak and lamb. THEIR ARTICHOKE APPETIZER IS A DELIGHT FOR THE EYES,,,,fanned out like a flower and just as tasty. Very enjoyable all the... More

I had the combo of minestrone soup which was homemade and lasagna. Others at the table had the salmon ravioli and... More

The food here is usually good. Not great, just good. The outdoor seating is very lovely and quiet if you are near the front. If you are closer to the back, then you get more of the kitchen noise. Service is hit or miss. Sometimes you get a great server and sometimes you are completely ignored. I feel the menu... More

We go there 1-2 times monthly. Never had a bad meal. Basic Italian-light menu. Safe for all tastes. Veal is good, but better down the street at Da Mario. Their menu, on the other hand, is very limited.

I haven't been here for years, and my friends and husband went here for lunch on Friday because the patio was inviting. The menu has typical Italian offerings like ravioli and lasagna and the yummy fresh-baked bread delivered to the table. One nice lunchtime surprise is a combo menu where for $13 you can choose from a limited list of... More

If you are a bread lover like me, you won't be disappointed. The bread is made on site, brought to the table warm, and is gooey heaven. Large diverse menu. Setting is quaint in and old house. You really feel like you are eating in someone's house. The caeser salad was good, as was minestrone soup and Bella salad. Everyone... More

With the place half empty, after being seated and ordering our food, the wait for food was at least half an hour. The chianti was turning bad, but I did not send it back. The steak was dry (I ordered medium rare). My plate was mixed up with another's, so we had do a mealtime swap. I felt like a... More

Went to meet friends before an event.-their dinner was delayed by an hour! Checked out the menu-has not changed in many years-neither has the wallpaper in the bathroom. This place went from charming to funky on the clean scale. Sat at the bar and enjoyed a great martini and friendly bartender who managed to disappear.
