Great Italian

This is by far my favorite Italian restaurant in the Iowa City area. Menu changes regularly and a terrific wine list as well.

One of the three best orthern Italian dinners that we've ever enjoyed. Chef and owner Baroncini is a first class hands on host.

I was visiting from out of town and was expecting great things from this Italian restaurant. My companion and I ordered both appetizers and entrees. The blue crab salad was very cold and tasteless and looked as a can of tuna had been turned upside down on the plate though the general presentation was attractive . The smoked salmon was... More

we love this place best of all iowa city restaurants. there is only one downside which is the closeness to each other of the row of tables on the north wall. but pretend you are in new york city where this is common practice. the food will make you think you are!

Though this is a major college town, it's still a surprise to find such a superb restaurant as this one! The facade is ordinary, squeezed between other stores on a Main Street. But the food and the service are excellent. The presentations of each dish are gracious and aesthetic, and the menu is varied enough to satisfy everyone, including vegetarians.... More

Had a very pleasant dinner here. Parking can be a challenge in downtown Iowa City though. I had the ravioli, pasta aldente and good. Nice wine selection. Recommended.

Had lunch there this past week. From selected items on the menu you may chose 3 for $15. Lots of food for the price. The food was very good and the waitstaff very professional

We found this restaurant on Trip Advisor, and I'm glad we did. Small place, a little hard to find, and easy to drive by. Service was exceptional. I will say the food was not of my mid west taste, a little more fancy or exotic but I did enjoy it more than my girlfriend thought I would. To say it... More

2 of us ate here for dinner. Service was excellent. Cozy-maybe 6booths and bar. Takes reservations. I had trout that was cooked perfect on a bed of great vegetables. Colleague had drizzled truffle spaghetti and meatballs. Both were wonderful. Extensive Italian wine offering. By 7:30 it was 90% full on a Wednesday night.

Very welcoming staff on a rainy night without reservations. Everything was great as usual, the Chef's special was marvelous. Great wine suggestions.
