Good Italian Food...

This is another place that looks really unassuming on the outside, but on the inside, it is actually kind of elegant. They have a very good wine bar, and you can hang out there and enjoy a glass while waiting for an open table. Their house salad and garlic bread are fantastic - the bread is soaked... read more

The salad and garlic were the highlight of our meal. Our entrees were very bland. Everything seemed to be straight out of the Sysco freezer. The decor was way too old and dark. Vampires would love this place. Service was fine. Would not return.

We dined here for mother's day and we were actually quite disappointed. We have eaten at this location a couple of times in the past and not had issues, but this time I don't know what happened to some of the food. We were a party of 9 and actually it was just average wait time which was a relief.... More

I had seen rave reviews on Tripadvisor and decided to try it out. I called at noon on Mother's Day to make a reservation for a party of 11 at 5:30 and they had no trouble with arranging it. We arrived on time to find out table set and waiting no issues. The waitstaff were friendly and courteous and smiling.... More

This was such a good place to enjoy a great meal. I had salad which has a good house dressing on it, followed by Manicotti with marinara sauce which was absolutely delicious served with rolls with butter and fresh garlic on top and ended with dessert by choosing canoli... Yum!! It was a little high on price but oh so... More

I love their salad and garlic rolls. I will often times pick them up and take them back to my hotel room to secretly binge on them! The Italian food is very good here and the place is always packed so make reservations for sure. Also, the do not accept checks!

My husband and I were craving Italian food and after searching we came across this place. The food is okay, my husband made the comment that another well known Italian restaurant may have been better. The dinner rolls were swimming in butter, the floors were far from clean and the service was mediocre at best. I don't think we'll be... More

Wonderful place to gather and celebrate a Birthday. Garlic Rolls are addicting and endless salad is a nice touch. We all enjoyed our entrees and the great service by Jeff.
