I met up with some friends in Norman and we were looking for Italian food that wasn't a chain restaurant. Several locals told us this was the place to go and we enjoyed a nice evening. The place was little fancier than I was thinking, but it was great and our party of five all found something that they enjoyed.

This was the 2nd catered mea I've enjoyed with this restaurant. I believe you need reservations and I can see why. The food is so good I ate more than usual. A little more up scale than other restaurants but nice jeans and shirt would work.

Have been here several times over the years. It is consistently wonderful. Nice Ambience and service has always been good. Great option to "chains".

Excellent for Norman, but not up to big city standards. Servers are students, so can vary considerably. Food is good and portions are good. Good for a quiet or business dinner. Don’t fear the train – you dinner will be interrupted by periodic trains passing just across the parking lot.

Great selection of Italian dishes and wonderful salads. Their wine selection is outstanding, including flights of several wines.

We visit this place for almost all occasions, when I want a decent food, uncompromising good quality food, always predictable taste by chef Anthony!! Problem is that we only have a limited selection to choose from. I love their truffle oil smothered pasta- Flat breads, risotto arancini, caprese salad. Just wish Anthony makes a few more dishes. Best restaurant in... More

My favorite place in Norman to go on a special occasion. Pasta dinners are great! Chicken Marsala is very good. I like scallops but they are served with pork belly😟 so I no longer order them. Service is excellent.

We've been here many times but this visit was a 'fail.' The staff acted as though they didn't want to be there. The hostess was diffident to the point of being rude. The waiter was inattentive. He even poured ice down my back and didn't seem to notice. All of this made the food seem a notch down. We will... More
