Very nice Italian restaurant

On a Wednesday evening this locally-owned Italian restaurant was very busy. The wine list offered a nice selection of wines at a reasonable price.. The pasta dishes were generous in size and tasty, with a delicious home-made sauce. Our waitress was helpful.

This is Italian sauce like it's supposed to be: flavorful, aromatic and served in generous portions. Everything on the menu is delicious and we've had rave responses to every entree we've ordered. My personal favorite is the 3 cheese ravioli. All the portions are excellent, prices are reasonable and the wait staff attentive. If pizza is your thing, plan on... More

Authentic Italian food like Grandma use to make! Warm atmosphere and all the staff are great, (love Gordy the bartender!). The owners are hands on. Gary makes his own recipes that melt in your mouth and Karen greets you and makes sure everyone is taken care of. We eat here a lot and highly recommend you plan dinner some night... More

A very friendly and charming italian trattoria style restaurant. Quality of food is consistant (there is an owner paying attention). Standards are high. Portions are generous, you will not leave hungry.

My sister & I both had the special which was Seafood pasta primavera alfredo. It was. There was a great deal of seafood and a very well rounded. The portion was more than enough and plenty left over for the next evening. Our server was efficient and quick but with a great sense of humor and personality. This will definitely... More

I have been here many times and I always leave satisfied. I really like the pasta bites, Italian grilled cheese, and lasagna. About once a month they have a special of rosemary salmon which is one of my favorite meals of all time. Probably the best Italian restaurant I have ever visited. Drinks are a bit expensive and it can... More

I've always heard great things about this place and it being a local favorite... but was disappointed when I finally tried it. I got the chicken alfredo and it was very bland and the sauce was somewhat grainy in texture.

Went to dinner for the first time on a Saturday evening with 5 in our party. The place is small and intimate but it fit the decor and atmosphere. Server was great and we had appetizers, dinners and drinks and the food was great. The pasta is so good and made fresh and the portions were plenty. Lots of take... More

Just terrible! They don't take reservations, but told us they did not expect to be busy. (On a Friday night in Jackson? Red Flag!) When we got there we were told that they did not have a table big enough for us (party of 8), but we could sit at adjoining tables. Perhaps they were adjoining, but because one was... More
