Consistently great Italian dining

Outstanding Italian food, both classical and creative cuisine. Wait staff are usually excellent. The noise level, like most up-scale restaurants in this area, is objectionable.

Springtime dinner out with the family. Mom, dad and 2 teenaged kids plus our special needs 11 y old son w/ Down syndrome. The waitress was super nice and accommodating. The food was exceptionally good. I had the signature veal dish and loved it. Decent Italian wine selection. Considering where this restaurant is located, it's outstanding! Prepare for very busy...

On Thursday through April they have a deal with two pasta dishes and a bottle of wine. Asparagus appetizer is good. Chicken Picatta was ok. Lasagna was great and so was the red wine. Dessert was good. We got a pecan chocolate carmel dessert. It was surprisingly busy for this time of year.

The wine, at the recommendation of our delightful server was perfect and each meal was well prepared, presented beautifully and delicious. We each... More

This small place has a lot of yum packed in. The dishes are fresh and amazing. The specials list is extensive and innovative. It is a small place and popular which means reservations are a must. Eat outside if weather permits as it can get noisy inside. Or eat early in the evening to avoid a full dining room. The... More

We live in the area and this is one of our favorite local restaurants. The food is great, service is good and the atmosphere is cozy though a bit noisy. Prices for food and wine are good. We've been dining here for several years and plan to come back. Only thing I wish they would do is warm up the... More

We drove along M22 and then used our GPS to find this place because it was highly recommended on Yelp. We were NOT disappointed! It is a small and cozy restaurant with GREAT service and GREAT food. We started with some house made pate that was the chef special. It was fantastic. For dinner I had the parmesan crusted salmon... More

4 of us had different entrees and each of us was raving about our dish. Warm inviting interior, very good service. Prices were spot on. Don't miss this treasure.

My husband and I dined at this restaurant in October. We called to see if they had a cancellation because Open Table had them completely full. They were able to get us in. The food was delicious, although we didn't care for the bread/salad. The portions were large. We paid an $8 "split" fee and shared an entree. Warm, cozy... More
