Ordered a lunch special. Fish and pasta. Really good fish with buttery lemon sauce! Great price! My other two friends said their food was very good also.

Recently went here for anniversary dinner for my parents, 20 of us, private room on a Friday night. Live jazz started at 7pm. The food was excellent, the fish, the chicken, superb! Great service to top it off. When I'm back in town, I'll be going there for a meal again!

This place is one of my favorites. Their cannelloni is to die for! I love their gnocchi with pink sauce. Their chicken and meat parmesan are fantastic...very light breading, not greasy or oily at all. They have one of my favorite Cesar salads too. No fountain drinks so you overpay by the can for soda, but it's not out of... More

Great food & ambiance, but most importantly, AWESOME service!! We were greeted at the door by all the employees who made eye contact with us and also when we left. The risotto cake appetizer is a MUST, and the live band was great. I am definitely going to be returning!

Order anything that comes with the fig sauce - WOW. The fish special in orange sauce was great too. They have live music on fridays and you can dance too. I... More

Based on my experience in the neighborhood, I feel that this is a great option for someone looking for a Latin fix. Although the restaurant has claimed that they are Peruvian/Italian - I simply go for chicken breast special for lunch (which is about 7-10 bucks and you can't beat that in the area). The service is prompt and that... More

The ceviche is just salt and lemon. Besides, they reduce portion sizes and sides. stay away from this place.
