Nice for a casual lunch

We had tons of food here. Place just opened, as it was quite early when we got there. We were received and seated quickly, I am sure to come back to this place for dinner, and it seems it is better at night. It feels like a great atmosphere.

We always visit this restaurant when we are in the area. Great pasta for all family members. Recommend the the lobster ravioli and any of their salads.

Beautiful place, super service, wide variety of food and yummy desserts. Recommend for date night, while there were families there it is geared to romance with a quiet subdued atmosphere and piped in jazzmusic, flickering candles. Great food too.

Tried to eat here this past Saturday at 2:30 in the afternoon. We were seated quickly, and ordered & received drinks pretty quickly. After that, completely ignored by wait staff. Gave up after 30 minutes, threw enough to cover drinks on the table and left. Couldn't even find a hostess to talk to when we left. Worst service ever.

I had the grilled shrimp with vegetables. It was OK. Husband had tortellini with sausage. He liked his. I did see people ordering salads which were large and looked good. Also the pizza can be flatbread or regular crust. So a salad which was about $4 ? And a pizza to share would probably be what I would order if... More

We love this place. The Shrimp Napoli is our favorite appetizer. Have had many of their pasta dishes and have never been disappointed. Enjoy!!

We were traveling through the area and decided to spend the night at the Residence Inn. We walked around the shops and restaurants and decided to try this restaurant. The chopped salad was ok and my husband's pasta was very sticky and it seemed like it had been cooked and set off to the side for quite awhile. He actually... More

Food is very boring and overpriced. Given it a few tries and never impressed. If you want good Italian, go pretty much anywhere else.

From the moment I walked in, until I left, the service was impeccable. The young man who waited my table was super, polite and professional. The food was great. The restaurant is within walking distance of the Residence Inn, as there are also other eateries.
