First, the food is good. It feels like the pasta is not hand-made on the spot, but rather bought, however the food tastes good and I would definitely eat it again. The place itself has a feel of a genuine Italian restaurant in Italy (source : I've been to Italy. The service is great. If you're looking for a good... More

This place caught my eye as I drove by. Nice patio that was filled with customers, came in to check out the menu and immediately saw a lot of Italian favorites. I had the beef Carpaccio and some cream of asparagus soup. The carpaccio was super fresh and seasoned just right. The wait staff was amazingly attentive & friendly.

Nothing bad to say about this place really. Food never disappoint and service is usually pretty good. You can bring your own bottle of wine with a small 10 dollar corkage fee. Knowing the staff helps to get in sooner.. I recommend this place to anyone who love home cook style ITALIAN food.

We took a chance on an early dinner around 6:15pm on a Sunday. We sat outside and enjoyed the late summer early evening. The tomato dip that came with the bread was very good, the bread, not so much.z We shared the eggplant as a starter which came with a very good red sauce. We ordered a bottle of the... More
