Great family dinner

Our group of 13 had a wonderful dinner here celebrating Mother's Day. We called ahead and the restaurant did a great job accommodating our group. We had a bit of a wait but we were offered appetizers and sat in the nice bar until our table was ready. Fresh bread, great salads and wonderful dishes... read more

One of our favorite Italian restaurants-even if it is a chain place. The olive oil bread dip has crunchy chips of garlic to flavor the oil and with hot bread and wine, you almost don't need anything else! Angel hair pasta with artichokes is our favorite dish-all the complex flavors hit your taste buds in all the right spots! Call... More

My family and I really like this restaurant ! The food is always tasty and the portions generous . I find the atmosphere to be very cozy and homey. I love the soft retro Italian music that plays throughout the place. My personal favorite is the eggplant parmesan, but truly , I have yet to be disappointed in any entree... More

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
