Worth a Detour

This strip mall suburban restaurant is worthy of your attention. The food is the star here. Do not make you selections until after you hear the specials for the day. Whatever you choose will be well prepared

I am able to enjoy this hidden Italian gem whenever I'm in town for business. It is unassuming on the outside but cozy on the inside. This time I started the visit with a generous glass of sparkling wine at the bar. When my dinner mate arrived we moved to a table with a white cloth and I had an... More

Our favorite local Italian restaurant! Usually we order pasta dishes but this time we opted for the rosemary lamb special and Insalata di Lattuga Romana (Romaine lettuce hearts with warm gorgonzola sauce, croutons and crispy pancetta). One of the best Romaine lettuce salads I’ve ever eaten, delicious, will definitely order that again! The rosemary lamb chops were delicious too, the... More

This restaurant has been in Rockville for years and it has never disappointed. We went when the kids were young, we've gone with couples and the service and food has always been fabulous.

This is my go to place for business lunches. The food never disappoints and the service is always friendly and professional. It's one of the best Italian places in the Rockville area. I have been going here for over 10 years and have never had a bad meal. The location is not ideal as the parking is tight and the... More

We went for lunch and it was wonderful and I look forward to returning. The lunch is more like smaller versions of their dinner menu. Though it is a little pricey around $18 per entree, it was well worth it. The waiter is very knowledgable and can assist you with making a decision. Though it is in a dumpy small... More

What a surprise to find delectable, authentic Italian cuisine in this hidden gem off the Pike. When my family pulled into the strip mall behind Exxon I was thinking "they really can't be bringing me here for my birthday"! Only to have a delicious dinner of seafood dishes, great wine, and homemade sorbet. The service was great too. Highly recommend... More

I have been here many times over the years, but last weekend it was just awesome. The food here is just very good quality and always dependable. Don't miss it. I suggest going a little earlier than you would normally to avoid long waiting in the bar and to get a good parking space. The inside is so nice and... More
