This restaurant is in a strip mall and one can be fooled that it might be cheap and not good. One would be wrong on both counts. It is expensive but the food is pretty good. The vegetarian starters ere fresh and the eggplant Parmesan was well cooked. The desserts were also delicious. Looked like plain tap waster was not... More

After a 1 hour wait on a Tuesday with no crowd. We were told came back in an hour and so we did to a hostess that didn't seem to have time for us and a waiter with an attitude as though he didn't want us there. Not given a beverage option other than water if you didn't order wine.... More

I wished I lived closer :( Our dinner was absolutely delicious! My husband and I were running the Disney Race so we wanted to find a good place to "carb up" the night before-this place did not disappoint. The service was wonderful-they definitely work as a team which i love seeing. The desserts were great too (I loved the lemon... More

For a small and dodgy looking place in a little strip mall, next to a subway and a sports bar, we had low expectations, but everything about it was really nice. The waiter was funny and helpful, food delicious. Average age was 60+ but apart from that excellent.

Wow.... I found the restaurant on Open Table. It was New Year's Eve, so trying to find a last-minute reservation for four was challenging. We pulled up to the restaurant slightly worried about its strip mall location. As soon as we entered, the quaint decor and warm welcome from the hostess put our fears to rest. Our server was Italian... More

My family went to this restaurant after leaving sea world. The restaurant was conveniently located nearby. It is a cozy mom and pop with great Italian food, and our waiter Carmelo went the extra mile. It was my daughter's birthday and they brought cake and sang to her. This is not something I am accustomed to in a classy Italian... More

I loved their house bread with balsamic dip. I ordered the eggplant parmesan and it was also delicious. The house salad dressing was maybe a bit tart, but overall very good. It is a bit pricey however.

My wife's chicken dish (Pollo Al Limoncello Di Casa) was very poor--relatively tasteless. My pasta dish (Pappardelle Al Cinghiale Con Porcini) was pretty good, but nothing exceptional about it. The service was very attentive, The shopping center in which the restaurant is located is very dilapidated, with multiple empty stores.

First looks are deceptive. It is in a strip mall that looks a little bit seedy. Inside, it is a nicely furnished restaurant with friendly, efficient staff. The food was fresh and not overly seasoned. This place rivals my favorite restaurant in New York's Little Italy. The tiramisu was outstanding.
