Excellent Italian food

The bread that comes to the table with oil and balsamic, just that is enough to recommend this place. My martini was perfect. We enjoyed the chicken Parmesan, some kind of delicious zucchini and sausage dish, and the salad, the meatballs, all delicious. Our waiter Cory was excellent-never... read more

You would never know it by the ordinary character of the decor but it started with great service and was worth it's trip advisor rating. Veal was tender and chicken Parmesan made my kids, who know good Italian food, very happy. Staff was attentive and friendly. Would definitely go back the next time we're in Virginia beach!

Atmosphere is okay, service is good, portions are large, but the food is very Americanized Italian. If you've ever been to Italy, this is not like real Italian food. The only way I can think to describe it is the dishes are very heavy, and some are very rich. Full of cheese and sauce and a lot of calories. Not... More

The Italian food is like being in Italy. Start with the best she crab soup you will find anywhere. I have had the soup in many restaurants in Virginia and this is the best you will ever try. Try the lasagna . The service is friendly and efficient. There are specials and each is excellent with a nice choice of... More

Very small and intimate restaurant. Large entree selection of classic Italian meals. Awesome appetizers. Service was a little slow but the meal made up for that

I went here for my Birthday a couple of weeks ago and had a fabulous meal! We both had the she crab soup as an appetizer and it is superb! This is a multi award winning soup and you haven't really lived until you have tried it! It is light and yet creamy with the perfect balance of she crab.... More

Some of the best food we have had in a while. Enough to compel us to write a review, which we haven't don't in a long time. Food was so good, we returned the next evening. First night, we had the fried oysters and a shrimp fettucini with vodka sauce. Portions are huge and both dishes were perfectly prepared! The... More

Ate dinner here with son and family. The Calamari ranks up there with the best I have ever ate. Wife and I had the Panko Crusted Chicken on a bed of Mashed Potatoes. Seriously good. Everyone else's dinner was positively commented on. Will keep coming back, and back, and BACK!!!!
