Who knew such an unassuming restaurant could produce such tasty food. Everything was very good. Even my Italian husband, who only liked his moms cooking, was impressed by the veal Parmesan. I was pleased they have such a large gluten free menu, including pasta, bread and cheesecake. Yes...the decor... read more

Dinner here on a Thursday night. Family-owned and certainly has the intimate feel. Server was extremely friendly and was quick with service. Ordered the Mushroom Ravioli with the suggested Alfredo Sauce ($15, flavorful but a bit too salty for my taste) and the Meat Lasagna ($13, delicious and enough to take home).

Staff was really friendly and attentive. The bread and noodles are pretty standard, but their sauce is really good.

was totally surprised by the menu and prices. Our meals were excellent and staff very friendly. We had Italian meals and they were superb. We are going back again to try their steaks which everyone that had one was raving about. Great find.

Tonight my companion and I ate at this incredible Italian restaurant where EVERYTHING is made from scratch - all pastas, sauces, desserts, etc. It looks from the outside like nothing special and is in a strip of places that I have passed by 100 times. Luckily this week, I heard someone talking about this place and their extensive gluten-free menu.... More

Before heading to The Sharon in The Villages to hear Michael Bolton for my husband's birthday, we found ourselves at this little restaurant we have passed many times, intending to try some day. We were seated and served quickly by a pleasant young lady who cheerfully answered our questions and delivered 'off the charts' fresh bread, simple but crisp and... More

My husband loves lasagna, and he walked out of this restaurant saying, "that was the best lasagna I have ever had." He continues to say that! Wonderful place for local folks and visitors as well.
