Had dinner here on Valentine's Day this year after many people recommended it. Service was friendly and personable and the entire meal was excellent from their house wine to the appetizers, entrees and dessert. No surprise it's #1 in Va Beach!

My experience was beyond enjoyable and the food was superb. In addition to the quality of the food, the quality of our service provided by Shawn went above and beyond.

Someone from Italy once told us the best Italian restaurants in the US are in non-descript neighborhood shopping centers. We've found that to be true, but this one really stands out. The nuance in the food, and its range are both outstanding. Our server Courtney was wonderful as well. This is the kind of place where you can return again... More

It was a nice and warm inviting atmosphere. Our server, Andrew, was amazing throughout our visit. We were served fresh warm bread and had THE BEST CRAB SOUP! It is worth every penny! Our entrées were delicious; Scampi Fra Diavolo and Lasagna Bolognese. Definitely going back again and asking for Andrew!
