Went with a large group where children sat together and adults sat together. Imagine my surprise when my under-10 son's individual bill was over $20. I asked why he didn't get the children's portion and she said she thought he was the same age as the others (all 16yo). Three of us (1 adult, 1 teen, and 1 child) charged... More

Went during the week so it wasn't overly crowded. Students were also on vacation which also helped as the place is typically packed. Wonderful lasagna i would recommend it to anyone. Wine prices are very reasonable (not the greatest selection but adequate).

It had been awhile, but had the chance to stop in again. As always, it's small, sometimes pretty loud and almost uncomfortably hot. The calamari app was ok...a little oily for my taste, but it's pan fried so to be expected at some level. The salads were ok, but the vinaigrette not as flavorful as I would have liked. Veal...

Great selection of authentic Italian food, not just the usual pasta and red sauce. Warm atmosphere and ambiance

I have been here two times now. The first time was terrible enough to where I vowed to never return. My friend got a caesar salad and didn't even eat it because the lettuce was so wilted and saturated in dressing. I ordered the Funghi alla Pesto, basically a pesto pasta with some other toppings. As someone well versed in... More

Having traveled an hour off the beaten trail to a little town called Oxford, I was pleasantly surprised with the establishment. I always have the spaghetti and meatballs because if you screw up meatballs you have no business owning an Italian restaurant. They were great and the dishes that all the other people at my table had were met with... More

If your looking for a total foodie experience, than don't come here. If you're looking for a good solid Italian meal while visiting Miami U with college age kids - this would be the place. We had chicken parm and chicken marsalla - both were tasty, salads were fresh, and side pastas were tasty. Portions are more than generous. Wine... More

Have eaten there 3 or 4 times and I always feel the same: it's a average restaurant in a small college town. Smaller inside than the outside would hint at, consequently making a intimate or even fairly quiet dinner difficult. The food is ok but somewhat overpriced. It has a nice little bar and the bartender was a nice guy

You will definitely be disappointed if you believe the majority of the reviews here. I have given this restaurant 5 chances to win my business and they have blown it every single time. The food is mediocre at best - veal parmigiano was over-cooked, same for lasagna. Calamari tasted like it came right out of the freezer and into the... More
