Work in the industry and just wanted to stop by for a drink and some to go food. We sat at the bar which was wide open and were greeted by a server that seemed annoyed by our presence. We asked if we could order dinner to go and her response was "we are kind of busy, what do you... More

Don't let the location within a strip mall fool you. This restaurant serves classics, fresh Italian dishes. The menu is quite small, but our server shared two additional appetizers ( we had the prosciutto wrapped scallops) and about 6 entrees (which vary depending on the fresh ingredients available). Our group really enjoyed the veal with capers and lemon cream sauce... More

It's small and cut up inside and dark. Not a comfortable atmosphere and I guess you need to be Italian to appreciate the high priced cuisine. Small serving of Lasagne came on a large plate with a small side salad of just greens.

The chicken Marsala that was highly recommend by other reviews was in our opinion nothing to high-lite. Rather ordinary and with little taste and love in the kitchen. They need to do better!

I took fellow Tripadvisor's recommendations and booked a table for dinner. What a great treat. The food was fresh and excellent. The salad was good size, fresh ingredients and excellent dressing. My husband got 1/2 of an order of bucatini all'amatriciana.....oh my that was the BEST! Made me think I was back in Rome. For dinner had the chicken marsala... More

Gracious host and server, delicious chicken Marsala and fabulous veal. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but go for the food. Highly recommended

made last minute reservations for 7p and restaurant was really full (it's small) but were seated within 5min of arriving. The staff are SUPER nice. They have a nice selection on the menu but had at least 5-7 specials also. The food is very good, I had the risotto and the scallop appetizer. The wine is poured very generously. Don't... More

Shared a meal with our friends - they sat us at a small table for 6. At first I was skeptical but we had a fantastic time - the meal was great! My husband is Italian and he enjoyed the food as well. Between the six of us, it appeared we tried a variety of items on the menu and... More

After looking at the location (a strip mall) and the menu (it is standard shopping mall Italian) you wonder how this place rated so high on trip advisor!!! When the server explains the specials (there are many) your hopes for the evening get higher. When the meal arrives and you make your first tastes, you are marveled that you could... More
