True Italian

We eat here every trip we make to Fredericksburg. This is great Italian. Service is okay but the food is top level. Pizza is small and a bit overpriced. Stick with the real Italian.

This restaurant is expensive but well worth it. They serve a pizza type dough bread that is excellent with garlic and parmesan cheese. Service was excellent. Good selection of wines are available along with beer. Will go there again if I'm in the area.

Stopped on our way to New York and will say the staff was more than friendly. Had a personal pizza as an appetizer and it was excellent ( a little too thick for our liking but still very tasty). Veal parmigiana was tender and perfectly prepared. Say for the veal piccata. Definitely worth a stop

Stopped on recommendation of friends and was not sorry. Alexander treated us like family. The dinner was wonderful and so was selection of Italian wines. Had one of the house reds and it was one of the best house wines we have ever had. The restaurant is located in a strip mall near the hotels and 95. But don't let... More

This restaurant,in a strip shopping center two doors from a Dollar General, was a fantastic surprise. Going on a Saturday evening, the restaurant is tastefully decorated, the tables laced with white linens , and table placements all in order. We were promptly and warmly greeted. Hot bread with butter was brought to the table and we asked for another later... More

My mother was on a trip with a group traveling from Georgia up to New England. The group was spending the night in Fredericksburg. My wife and I drove over from Lynchburg to see her and while waiting at the hotel for the group to arrive I heard the gentleman at the front desk refer a couple to Vita Felice... More

Nice little family owned place. All the food was delicious. The staff was very friendly but the service was slow. We arrived at 6:30 and finished our meal at 8:00 with only about 12 other guests in the restaraunt. We are traveling back from N.C. and stopped for the night so not in a hurry. If you have time I...

We ate here on an earlier trip and chose it again. It is 1/3 mile from the I-95 Hampton Inn in a strip mall. The Italian food is very well prepared, but the owner needs to hire more staff than his immediate family, since they can't handle even a half-filled restaurant. The service was VERY slow. Hopefully, they will take... More

Visiting in town and told my friend I was in mood for Italian. We ended up here. Way too many good sounding items on menu. Made it hard for us to choose. Staff was attentive and friendly. Food was excellent. I could eat here regularly.

My salad caprezze was good but too drenched in balsamic oil but my eggplant parm was very good with a side of pasta. Had 2 glasses of red wine (corked) but what the hey. Got out quick for under $30. Owner came to table and was nice. I walked from the Hampton Inn. There were some old grumpy Floridians in... More
