Whenever I visit my father, I look forward to at least one visit to this wonderful Italian restaurant. The atmosphere is a wonderful balance: casual enough for jeans and romantic enough for a tie or dress. The service is always makes you feel special (even when I have come on my own). The pasta is fresh as is the seafood.... More

We've tried this restaurant for the third time. First two times, while the food was good the service was poor. Third time, no different. Unfortunately, this place may cater to "regulars" - but if they don't offer good service to those of us that are not yet deemed "regulars" - they will never get us to be on that list.... More

Wow, don't be fooled by the strip mall location. Fantastic food authentic old world dishes with a fantastic wine menu. You'll feel your in the old country. Not to be missed, great service.

Very quaint restaurant in a small mall setting. Great seafood choices as well as the pasta and meat dishes you would expect from an Italian place.

Food is excellent but service is somewhat slow. Don't expect to eat and go but rather lounge and take your time.

We are from out of town and were headed for a chain restaurant when I spotted their sign. I convinced my teen daughter and her friend that it was worth a try, and we were all very glad we did! We didn't have reservations and had to wait a little while for a table but it was worth it. Everything... More

Had to try this place due to the buzz and good reviews. Tried it twice before writing this review. Every dish our party ordered over two occasions was ample, nicely presented, prepared well, and over the moon delicious. Ask questions before ordering menu items though, as the descriptions don't always exacly match the dish. A couple of our dishes were... More

We have dined at this lovely white linen establishment and never been disappointed, but after the grandchildren arrived it became more difficult to dine with them. The deli has provided a wonderful substitute. The beep read, the pasta, and more are all the same as served in the restaurant next door, but you can wrap it up and take it... More
