“Yummy find off the square”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

This restaurant is very quaint. The food is excellent. Definitely love the sauce that comes with the bread! We shared the fried green olives (there were enough for three people to try). they were delicious. I had the blue crab ravioli - it was delicious. I could really taste the crab. Note that it's best to make a reservation as this place is small and really fills up quick.

“the best Ceasar Salad ever...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

My brother is a Food Chemist and works in the food industry in Dallas, Texas...when he and his wife visited me last month, I took them to this lovely Italian restaurant...they were both impressed and said they could not find food of this quality in DALLAS!!!
You really need to visit this restaurant! Their meatsauce for their yummy spaghetti is made from short ribs...AWESOME!!

“What a treat, Great marinera”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Tried this place on the recommendation of a friend. It served some of the best sauces we have had in a long time. We had the lemon chicken pasta dish. It was light and very tasty. Their caesar salad look marvelous. We can't wait to go back and try some other dishes. Another plus - it is not very far from Crystal Bridges!!

“Lunch off the Square”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

We had an okay lunch here between museum visits. The food was fine but not special. The pizza was hot and fresh but the crust did not taste like it was made in-house. We shared a caesar salad that was good but had a little too much dressing. The atmosphere was pleasant and the service was good though.

“mama mia!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Food was fantastic service was great. We have visited 3 times and had 3 great experiences. 1) For the kids ask for the off menu options (pasta in olive oil and garlic). 2) Make a "reservation" on line to limit your wait. 3) order anything on the menu its all good. The only issue is that its popular so if you are going without a "reservation" you are going to wait. If the wait is too long there are 5 other good options on the square. If you have the time, do wait, its worth it.
