“Very Nice Italian Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2008

This place came recommended by a local while I was in town on business. The restaurant is very fun and decorated nicely. It has a real Tuscan feel to it. The wait staff are all very attentive and right there, almost before you need something. The food was excellent. Even though they had several really good specials, I chose the chicken stuffed ravioli and wasn't disappointed. They have a great selection of wines as well. You really only have two options for parking, due to parking constraints in the area; either valet park or park around the corner at a manned parking lot for $3. I'm not sure what the valet charges, but the $3 was still worth it. I would definitely recommend this place if you are in the area.
