I had the 4 cheese ravioli, it was delicious!!! I would recommend this place to anyone. It's small and has a very family oriented feel. The restaurant is very clean and the Italian food seems very authentic. Great place to eat in mt sterling.

I usually love the salads because they use spinach but this time it was large pieces of lettuce:( some were even dark brown:( just disappointed :( Plus the waiter had zero personality. Poor service:(

Honey just loves those sauces that clog your heart...so finding the Carbonara with Pancetta and Veal was a dream come true. He finished his and half of mine with chicken. Waitress was attentive.

Stopped by for a Friday night meal. It was better than expected. Very clean place and friendly service. It was very busy at the time so service was a little slow but food was great. Would definitely go again.

Enjoyable. My food is always good, sometimes a little cold and service can be slow if crowded, but dependable to be good.
