My wife and I had heard about this italian restaurant from friends who had a wedding party dinner there and thought it was good. We found the setting to be well designed with sectioned off areas giving more privacy than a chain restaurant would. It's family owned and was fairly busy for a Friday night early dining. The waiter was... More

My parents always loved this restaurant so we started to join them for dinner every so often and found that we really enjoyed it as well. It is a small restaurant, but the service is good and the food is consistent. The portions are large - we always have leftovers for lunch the next day. I like their crusty bread... More

This is my sister and our families special place to celebrate special occasions. We love this place. I moved to TX and every time I come back we have to go there. Food is so good. Place is clean and the waiters are fast and efficient. I love the penne pasta with crab meat in a pink sauce. If it... More

Wife got chicken stuffed with bacon and prosciutto. Chicken was overcooked. The veal parm was very good. The service was great. Price is reasonable.

The service was prompt, polite and efficient. The tables, seats, and condiments on the tables were clean. While it was not delivered warm, the bread definitely was fresh. One drawback... they provided those little butter packets. I expect high-end olive oil, freshly grated Parmesan, and fresh-ground black pepper with warm bread. The Caesar salad was the perfect size... just enough,... More

Strip mall, seating out front, should have opted for that. Two couples in a booth was uncomfortable. Glass of wine was $7, not worth it. Bread was stale at times, although we went for lunch midweek, bread should always be fresh. Ordered veal piccata , flavorful , but nothing exciting. Salad was included in meal, no choice of dressing, Italian... More

This was one of our favorite restaurants when we lived in Fairfax. We have not been back since we moved about 4 years ago, but had the opportunity to eat here for lunch yesterday.. OMG the food is even better than before. We had the Pollo Bianco, the Gnochi in cream sauce and the Lasagna Bolegnese. (excuse my spelling if... More

I'm a foodie, and only give 5 to restaurants where you could take a rockstar. That being said, the food here is very, very good. Have eaten here several times when back in town with my parents. Last night, I had the first chicken dish, with bacon/onion red cream sauce over penne. The salad was crisp and cold, with a... More
