Best kept secret

This little Italian restaurant in the neighborhood of Kiln Creek is one of the best kept secrets in Newport News. The food is delish. The atmosphere is right out of a scene in Italy. The wine selection is great and the garlic knots are the star of the show. I go at least once every two weeks and I... read more

Had a welcome to the company lunch and it was so good. Their portions are large , the food is authentic Italian, the bread is to die for.

Best Italian restaurant in Hampton Roads! Everything made fresh to order, large portions, delicious homemade garlic knots. Great prices, you get a lot for your $! Servers are friendly & efficient. After becoming a regular, it feels like Cheers - where everyone knows your name.

We had made reservations at this restaurant as it was a participant in American Airlines AAdvantage Dining Program. We knew we made the right choice when the Priest who we spoke with after Mass on Saturday night recommended this restaurant telling us it is the only good Italian restaurant in the area. We had wonderful meals. My husband ordered the... More

My wife and I have been here at least 4 times and each time the food has been excellent. However, the service has always been mediocre at best, but when we visited the last time the service was terrible. We sat down and had our order taken immediately, but we waited over 40 minutes to get our food. When our... More

We have been going to this restaurant for years. We hadn't been in a while so we decided to go to lunch on a Thursday. When we arrived no one was at the hostess stand so we waited as it appeared the restaurant was at least 3/4 full with only 2 servers. A waiter came up to the stand to... More

Excellent meal and value! Went with two other couples and I sampled everyone's dish and they were all great! I ordered the Veal Scaloppine Tutto Funghi, which was great. Dinner entrees come with a salad, served family style, and awesome garlic knots! My favorite dish I tasted was the Pollo Rustico (see the menu for the description). Between the six... More

Hidden in a strip mall just off Exit 256B of I-64 in the Kiln Creek Golf Club and Resort community area, this delightful eatery is an obvious favorite for the locals and it is evident why this is so. Food and service belied the first impression that this was just another pizzeria that served some Italian style meals as a... More

This is a favorite regular restaurant for my family and friends. Great staff and great food are the usual here. Love the selection and the price for value. We usually each get one meal and have enough to save for leftovers. Eggplant appetizer is great, make sure to try it along with their Bruchetta. Delish. We usually get a reservation... More

We had a wonderful meal and terrific service at this locally owned restaurant. It was Tuesday night and on Tuesdays they offer a large selection of split entrees that include a fresh and crisp salad, wonderful garlic knots, four glasses of wine and a split dessert. All of this at an unbelievable price! I will make this a regular Tuesday... More
