Authentic Italian food

The food is excellent here. There is no one in town that makes home made pasta! The parking lot holds maybe 10 cars. There is some free street parking. I would recommend reservations as it is a small place.

Excellent food and service, and the best Italian we've had since Italy. We talked it up so much our kids gave us a gift certificate for Christmas. Can't wait to go back.

Very reasonably priced actually, and very good. Great bruschetta and lasagna. The only problem is that it reminded my wife so much of our visit to Italy last year that she wants to plan another trip. So although dinner for 3 was less than $100, that dinner may wind up costing us thousand$. Until that next trip to Italy comes... More

Impreccable Italian, gracious service, reasonably priced. Our service was beyond. We were 15 minutes late for our reservation - almost 20. It was near the end of service and they still allowed us to sit, didn't rush us, they were so gracious....this level of service cannot be underestimated. And then, you've got the food. House made pasta to die for.... More

Dirty and dusty. Found a hair in my food. The manager said thanks and sorry. Really? Yes, really. I practically had to make him take it off our bill. This place is going downhill fast

My husband and Inwent to this Italian restaurant due to the good review of my co worker and indeed I wasn't disappointed by what we ate, the service and best of all it nearby. One thing though, you have to call to make reservations because they are usually full. I'm giving it a 4 stars only because the place is... More

The whole extended family went here recently for my adult son's dinner. The only issue we encountered was a wait about 20 minutes past our reservation time. This generally would not be an issue, but we did have younger children with us and there is really no place to wait. (Note: they did give us an appetizer at no charge... More
