Strip mall find. A very interesting and accomodating menu. I had the Traverse Cherry Chicken and was very pleased. Attentive, but not annoying service. If it were closer I might try on a regular basis. If in the area I would certainly drop in. A big step up from the Italian Chains, but they do add garlic to fettuchini alfredo,... More

Our waiter, V-----t, took our drink order: two Chianti and two Chardonnay. He brought four glasses of Chianti and when questioned, he claimed two were Chardonnay! When we laughed,... More

I made a reservation for 8 based upon the reviews on this site. Unfortunately our experience was far less than stellar. We were seated at a table and ignored for 30 minutes. Even after giving our drink orders it was another 20 minutes before we got a piece of bread or our drinks. We had our up there in age... More

Group of 6 for dinner, with 4 never having been there. What an awesome experience! Waitress A+, Food A+, Atmosphere A+, we conversed with the owner for quite a while, and went into the kitchen with the owner to get a question answered by the chef! WOW!

This place is great. Some friends of mine told me about it and took my wife there for a dinner before the movies. Food was fabulous and nice decor. Very great setting.
