“Salads were amazing but dinner was a disappointment.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012 via mobile

Very nice ambience. The salads came out and we were so impressed but the entrees had no flavor. A big zero. This is s trendy place that may be trying to do too much. Don't waste your time if you are looking for food with flavor.

Sorry but that's the truth. Go elsewhere

“Nothing special.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012 via mobile

Had dinner there with friends. We had the sampling salads, pasta and steaks. Food was OK but you would expect tastier food in Italy. The pasta sauces were reheated. Steaks were average and overall the place has no real character. As I said it was OK but I will never go back there again.

“good food, great prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

The handful of times I have been here it has always been consistent and delicious. Typically there is a wait so if you can make a reservation. I enjoyed the filet balsamico- yum! Also they have a great pasta tasting that is VERY reasonably priced for what you get. If you love pasta that is the way to go. Good service and the table wine is not too shabby.

“Best dinner in Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

My favorite meal in Italy, we did the pasta sampler and had the blue berry steak..... it was soooo good. If I would of gone back (which I wish I would have) I would of gotten the patsa sampler and the steak sampler just to try more of their food.

“authentic italian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

We went to this restaurant based on our hotel's recommendation. This was a pleasant surprise. Though the menu was all in Italian, our waitress was most helpful and took the time to describe the dishes. We ended up with an amazing dinner of pasta, salad, and a great house wine. We did sit right next to other couples, but it was fun and cozy. I would go there again. You probably need a reservation.
