First time there and a little disappointing. Waiter was somewhat out of his element. He had several missteps with the wine and getting correct salads to us. I gave in to a plain garden salad instead of my upgraded salad rather than wait. Veal was tough and had little flavor. We wished it had been better. Air conditioning was out... More

Service was good especially with our large group. I can't say I was impressed with the Italian food, but the bread was great.

Great food and fun. Been going since 2006. Best Italian food by far in the area. They can make whatever you like!

Generally, this is a good local spot to get food - Tonight was not so. First of all, the temperature in the restaurant had to be in the 80s. We decided to go to the bar but it wasn't much better. Our shrimp and chicken scampi was very bland. Our male server spent more time talking to a young lady... More

I have to admit that I was dubious even after reading accolades for this restaurant. In Seneca? Oh my. We dined here for my husband's birthday while visiting our state's beautiful parks. I was astounded. The staff was amazing, especIally our waiter, Joseph. Ask for him! My husband and I both had the most delicious New York strips, worthy of... More

It seems that they're marketing themselves as a more expensive Italian restaurant with an extensive wine menu (which we didn't get). And the food we ordered was good & satisfying but not exceptional. I had an eggplant dish that was tasty layered Portobello, zucchini, breaded eggplant & spinach but was $17 where my husband had medley of 3 different typical... More

Staff enjoys their jobs! Very obvious! From veal to fish to eggplant stack....you cannot go wrong! I live in Atlanta and am disappointed when I have to drive through this area on a Monday and they are closed! You will not be disappointed!!

Great food. Very tasty, but service was a little slow. We were a large group, but after adjusting for that, it was still a little slow. Again the food itself was well done and great. A good variety of dishes.
