My dining companion can be high maintenance. The wait staff was very gracious with all his requests. Definitely... read more

Had lunch on a cold, rainy day, so the hearty, piping hot minestrone soup was a wonderful starter. Enjoyed a huge serving of scrumptious lasagne with enough remaining to take home for two more meals. My lunch partner raved about her chicken picatta. The food is delicious, service attentive and price moderate. Definitely will return.

This restaurant was open late and was not too far from our hotel, which is why we chose it. Service was very good, décor was pretty sparse and food Pasta) tasted pretty ordinary, like the sauce had come out of a bottle. It was lss than 1/2 mile from the hotel we stayed at (amongst many others), so it worked... More

Excellent appetitizer of mussels and calamari with tender and sweet flavor done perfectly. Entrees of Chesapeake ravioli and Chicken Chesapeake which was all very tasty. Ravioli's were fantastic.

Visited for early dinner on Christmas Eve. Wonderful wine area as you enter the restaurant - a lot of atmosphere. The adjoining dining room is pleasant. Much of the pasta is made on site as are most of the scrumptious desserts. I particularly enjoyed the "design your own" pasta meal. I did just that with angel hair, creme rosee sauce,... More

If you are looking for pizza delivery, this is probably your best option. They were on time with my food, and the delivery guy was very friendly. However, I felt the food was decidedly average, particularly for the price.

Stop in to see what it was like, got the meatballs that were very good, they really did taste homemade. One small thing the happy hour beer price was $4 a drink, which compared to other location is on the high side. I will come back and try a dinner at some point

Went here with a business associate for dinner. Although we arrived late towards kitchen closing time we were warmly greeted and seated. We were not rushed in any way even though it was kind of late. The food was very good. The wine selection by the glass is OK. My associate had a craft ale. I'd go back here anytime... More

The food was very tasty, the staff was as friendly as you would want, the manager circles the restaurant asking if everything is satisfactory, and great in house made bread.

I'm not a fan of Italian food. I think those who are would give this 4 stars. The dishes are usual for Italian restaurants in the U.S. but this food is better than most. It's pricier than eating Chinese. The place is attractive. Although we ate on Sunday and were shown dinner prices only, the manager said that we could... More
