What a treat to find a high-end restaurant catering to gluten-free folks. The pasta was excellent, gluten free bread was served along side French bread. I enjoyed fresh spinach ravioli in browned butter, while the celiac in the crowd dined on the most amazing 4 cheese gf ravioli in a walnut cream sauce. Unlike most restaurants that have a gf... More

The welcome was very friendly. The restaurant was classy hut the atmosphere was informal. The salad, ravioli and ice cream was outstanding and excellent value. I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant. We have been travelling around Washington and Oregon for three weeks on vacation from the U.K. and this was the best meal we have had.

I ordered the insalata di pere which was divine. The tirimisu was heavenly. Roast pork shoulder with awesome potatoes and clams in red sauce. Everything was perfect.

Asparagus ravioli and clam and shrimp pasta excellent. Meat and cheese appetizers disappointed us, no peppers or zest. A little expensive, especially the wine list, but we are in an expense account town. Would come back. m and

A wide variety of genuine Italian dishes, excellent wine list, and very attentive wait staff. I had Funghi di Stagione, Insalata Mediterranea, and Zuppa di Mare. Absolutely superb.

You know you're in a fabulous Italian restaurant when their Bresaola knocks you off your feet! We had to order a second plate!! (and seriously considered a third- just delicious!) Prepared in the perfect Italian tradition! Everything was excellent! I highly recommend the tomato soup, prepared with just a bit of cream- so fresh & delicious! My husband enjoyed the... More

The man and woman who own it are very lovely with their Italian accents, both very nice. Good service all around. The price might be normal for a dinner price, but it seemed a little pricey. I ordered tagliolini with mushrooms and it was $19, but the food was very good. The Tagliolini with clams, shrimp, and prawns was also... More

Arriving fairly late (45 min before closing), my son, his friend and I thought we might be turned away. On the contrary, we were warmly greeted, seated and served without being hurried or pushed. The wine was excellent, the service outstanding without being overbearing and the food was tremendous. My generous portion of lasagna was delicious, my son's full plate... More

On a beautiful Thursday evening we decided to try this restaurant for the first time. Greeted by a wonderful young lady, we were seated in a nice table to begin a great Italian evening. Our waiter and wine extraordinaire was outstanding with attentive service all evening. Starting with a grilled vegetable appetizer, we tasted marvelous flavors none ever better. The... More
