What an experience!

Delicious food in a quiet upscale atmosphere with knowledgeable waitstaff. Love the linen tablecloths and napkins, as well as the decor. Food options are really delicious. Have enjoyed several meals there and have never been disappointed. A bit expensive, but worth it for a special occasion.

This is the best restaurant in our neighborhood! Still family run, they care about their employees, their customers and the food. Seasonal and fresh, always appetizing.

Picked this city randomly as a over nite stop on our way driving south. This restaurant was so good this WILL be a stop on every future trip south. The owners and servers are very personable. The food was high quality and authentic. Taste was fantastic. The lamb was cooked exactly as ordered. One dining companion got the seafood special.... More

Seeing how highly this restaurant was rated, we felt like we were in for a treat. Arriving for an early dinner, we were seated immediately & were the only ones in the restaurant. The interior is beautifully done with special touches everywhere. Our waiter, Michael, was very friendly & helpful, willing to explain each dish we had questions on. Bread... More

This is a lovely restaurant! My husband and I went here for a romantic dinner before a play, and it was a fabulous meal! The service was friendly, food was tasty, and the ambience was lovely!

We stopped in for dinner on our anniversary and could not have been more pleased. Service, food and ambiance could not have been better. The chef/owner even came out and treated us to a song and prosecco to celebrate with us! We had the good fortune to live in Italy for 3 years and the food here is as authentically... More

We had had a difficult week and wanted a special evening out. As you stepped in the door you were transported to a family home in Italy. From the greeting, the care in seating you exactly where you were comfortable, to the aromas wafting from the kitchen. The service was exquisite, and just got better with every course. We were...

Looking for a special evening out...this is the place, violin playing, dimly lit,service impeccable even to folding a napkin when you go to the restroom. From fried calamari to veal chops, spectacular. Don' t even go their with dessert. Only if your looking for fine dinning. Hats off to the husband (chef) and wife... owners. That's why they've been in... More
