We spent a few weeks in Hendersonville this summer visiting my family and were able to enjoy a delicious meal with our young sons. Being from the New York area, we have had many dishes of linguine with clam sauce over the years. However, this was one of the BEST linguine with white clam sauce dishes I have ever had.... More

The best Italian food in the area. We are from NY & this beats all of them in Asheville & surrounding areas. My husband & I eat here twice a week.

We were looking for great Italian food; however, it just did not fit the bill. The service was slow, there were only 4 shrimp on my dish, and the pasta was overflowing.

Three couples had dinner. Each of use ordered a different entree and we were all very pleased. The seafood special was excellent and portions were generous. My husband had the Osso Bucco and said it was the best he ever had. I highly recommend going if you have a tasted for great Italian food.

The positive: the overall quality of the food was quite high, and the portions good. We enjoyed the Caesar salad, the chicken Alfredo linguine and especially the 4 Seasons pizza. We were glad to see the owner very present, greeting and seating customers, bussing and resetting tables as well as helping in the kitchen. The less-positive: We found the portion... More

The menu has a nice variety of Italian classics. What a pleasant surprise to find that the pasta was made fresh. The prices are reasonable and the servicing sizes are generous.
