We came here for dinner the other night and thought it was pretty good. The atmosphere is very casual inside, and the outdoor seating is very nice. Parking in front of the restaurant is almost impossible, just park in the garage and they will validate. The service is great. Our waiter was very attentive and had a pleasant attitude even... More

Great place, saw many people doing take-out at the equivalent of a deli, with fresh pasta instead of cold cuts and cheese. Next time in going to do that as well! We chose to dine in, had a friendly and knowledgeable waiter; there is a diverse menu. We had lasagne (recommend it) and the fish special (very tasty); both were... More

Pretty nice experience. Not fantastic but pretty good. Nice environment...very casual, cool seating. Food was very good ..not terrific. I had the stuffed peppers with seafood. I really liked the flavor, actual shrimp and crab was ok. All in all was a nice evening. Give it a try.

Wow, we will go back! This is the place where you can go with friends or bring the family. My wife order the chicken Asiago and I ordered the Rolled Stuffed Eggplant. We had to try each others dinner and decided it was very hard to say which was best. The service was spot on and went the extra mile... More

[See title for review.] Not much else to say. We took a chance with some out of town friends and it won all of us over. This place has a very authentic feel with a small Italian shop in the front and an at-home feel for the restaurant. My wife isn't generally a fan of Italian food and she said... More

Family recommended this wonderful, little restaurant and we had a fantastic meal there! The pizza was soooo yummy, really thin crust, and the special chicken dish was delicious. You must eat here if you like fresh, italien food!! Enjoyed the outside terrace!
