Great food and service

I ate the lunch special. Not a lot of people that day, so service was excellent. Pasta was great, fresh and very reasonably priced. Will go back. Tucked in the corner next to Outback.

The eggplant Parmesan came quickly, was a sizeable portion and was good but did not stand out. It came with a side of pasta..a salad would be nice to be included considering the price.

My pasta was bland with over cooked shrimp and my husband's chicken was microwaved. They were nice people and gave my daughter a free bowl of pasta. I won't be back for the food.

On the occasion of a weeklong company training event at one of Virginia Beaches’ hotel and convention centers, our group decided to try something outside of our hotel’s dining options. One of the team members web searched local dining options and after much debate and general consensus Italian was the choice. Driving distance was a consideration as we were car... More

This restaurant has some of the very best Italian food you will ever eat, including the desserts! But it's not just the food that calls you to go there - the folks who work there are so personable you will feel like part of the family! We have such a great time when we are there and, looking around, so... More

My wife went there for lunch following a movie. It was our second attempt, as the first trip was aborted due to renovations. We are always on the look out for a good neighborhood Italian restaurant, even though my favorite is just up the street from us. We ordered Greek salads (qood quality, but skimpy on the feta and WAY... More

I lived in VA Beach for 5yrs and less than 5 miles from this place before stumbling onto this little gem. It's tucked in a shopping center I have little reason to frequent next to the Outback. I've always enjoyed the food each time I've come here, good size portions, fresh made to order taste. Personal favs are the italian... More

Good servers. Average atmosphere. Average food. Pizza Fritta was very heavy on the crust, light on the filling. Crust was not crisp. Other dishes were just average.

Been here several times and it is always great. So authentic that if you face away from the parking lot, you might forget you are not in Italy.
