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

The best Italian food I've had since leaving Long Island in 1967. I recommend it highly. Wonderful veal.

Cute little Italian place in the middle of a strip mall. Outside seating is cute (but was way to hot to sit outside). Service was average. Ordered caprese salad. This was served with an amazing amount of mozzarella cheese! Also liked the balsamic sauce it was served with. I had the chicken francese and thought it was lacking in lemon... More

Four in party arrived 7:30 pm on a Friday and were immediately seated. Server appeared quickly and welcomed us to the restaurant. We began to enjoy a good bottle of pinot served in an attractive wine bucket and beer before ordering shared appetizers: tomato & mozzarella caprese and bruschetta. Entrees: shrimp, two different veal, and the ravioli special. All food... More

Alone, on a business trip, this place was great! Service was fast and accurate (kudos to Michael). Food was excellent, except for the bread, and reasonably priced. Good house chianti.
