Amazing is the first word that comes to mind when describing this restaurant. We went at 6:00 on a Saturday night and was seated right away without wait. The server was very good and friendly. Our food came quickly and it was some of the best pasta I've ever had! The fresh bread they served was right out of the... More

Limited menu, high prices and our food was much too salty. The wait staff was also not very attentive, even though it was early on a week night, and they weren't that busy. We will not be returning to this restaurant.

My husband is from New Jersey and he loves their food. The steak in a creamy gorgonzola sauce is excellent. Their pasta is wonderful! For my fellow gluten free foodies, they have a number of gf offerings including pizza. Our favorite restaurant in Muncie! PS...the canolies are delicious with a cappuccino or creamosa!

The wait wasn't long. We both decided upon pasta meals which came with a salad. Our salads were fresh, and our dressings were very tasty. Our meals also came with hot bread, which was good on a damp night. The servings of pasta are usually large, so I ordered the smaller portion which was just right for me. I preferred... More

The food was good but the place was very dirty which means we will not be back for that very reason.

The food was nicely prepared and tasted great. The price was a bit inflated for the quantity however. The quality was not the question. If I am going to pay $25.00 for a meal I would like a meal. I will go back but I will get something that is both quality as well as quantity for the price.

We didn't eat inside the restaurant, buy ordered food to go. They brought the food right out to the car. Reasonably priced, and best of all, delicious!
