“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

Nice location for those traveling to downtown Montgomery on business. The food however was bland. The portions were generous but more bland food is not a great value. The service was good and it was neat that Joe Dimaggio's cousin was the chef. I would, however, pick one of the other restaurants in the alley because for what you pay here, I don't think it's worth it.

“Italian downtown with uptown flavor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

Dinner out with a friend in downtown Montgomery on a Friday night. Friendly and fast service, huge portions. I had house wine, my dinner date had sweet tea and pork chop, I had crusted fish with roasted veggies. Breadsticks and homemade marinara were delicious, and both dishes were amazingly large portions. The room was warm, not sure if it was because of the closeness of the awesome open view kitchen or maybe my just not being acclimated to the southern heat yet. A definite return trip in the near future.

“Great Italian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

This place is great if you are in the mood for a dining experience like no other !! The pizza is wonderful, the Italian dishes (especially the Grandma's Sunday Sauce and the Rigatoni Bolognese) are out of this world (but I hope you have friends to help you eat it = the portions are HUGE) !! It is fantastic to see an Italian restaurant here !! Love this place !!
