Great Italian food

Had a wonderful meal here with family and friends. The decor makes you feel like you are in a little bistro in Italy. The food is good, the servers are pleasant and the atmosphere is nice. This is a nice place to bring a date for a very special evening.

Came here for a quickie lunch during a day of shopping. We had a wonderful meal, served by a helpful waitress, in an attractive environment. I am a stickler for good red sauce and the eggplant rottini was delish. My husband loves good sausage and pepper - he was happy. . Our salad was excellent, crisp vegetables and a nice... More

Menu item I... More

I'm impressed this restaurant has won awards posted on their wall. I was told the salad dressing was two parts vinegar and two parts oil but our salad dressing was vinegar. Most vinaigrette emulsions are two parts oil to one part vinegar. Our vinaigrette was just that, vinegar. The chicken Marsala was rubbery chicken with demi glaze over noodles and... More

This is one of the better Italian places to visit in the area. The price is a little high, but the food, atmosphere and overall experience make it worth it. You owe it to yourself to visit.

Called early November because I wanted to reserve the side room for the monthly meeting of our Book Group of ten. Gal left the phone to go check to make sure the room was available and it was so I booked it for today. When we arrived, we did not have the side room. Very disappointing. We managed to yell...

This is a good family style restaurant. They have several dishes that we like, including the eggplant parmigiana and the spaghetti with bolognese sauce. I like it for the high variety of vegetarian options. The service is always good there also.

Thank Karen G
