“A great Italian eatery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013 via mobile

Made reservations and upon arrival we were seated promptly. Very nice decor, noise level very acceptable and not bothersome. We split a Ceaser salad that was delicious and loaded with anchovies.
Entrees were Cannolli and a spaghetti dish.
Both very good with ample amounts. Service was friendly and efficient.
I will definitely try this restaurant again.

“quiet porch with fireplace”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

From a big selection, we chose a light meal of salad and pizza and loved every bite. The convenient location was next to the Hyatt and in a shopping mall. We enjoyed dining outside next to a cozy fireplace. The servers were friendly and helpful... one was actually an Italian!

“Good food pleasant atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Food is very good and changes occasionally keeping popular favorites. Atmosphere is comfortable with fountain, fireplace , view to the outside. Also open kitchen is entertaining.
Service friendly and very accommodating and not pushy at all.

“Great Italian in/near Roseville Galleria”

Beautiful restaurant, great service and really good food. Have only been for late lunch twice while visiting Roseville but will return every time I am there. Some of the best pasta I have ever had.

“Fantastic restaurant in Roseville area!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

Second time here in the past year, both times our expectations were exceeded. This time was midweek and there were plenty of tables available. Dining room is beautiful, kitchen is exposed and the staff were friendly and efficient. The two of us sat down at a table set for four, and within seconds the extra place settings were removed...try to find that little touch at a chain restaurant. The wine list is pretty big and they even had local wineries represented. As always in places like this, expect to pay $50 for a $10 bottle. Oh well, maybe I'll bring my own next time and pay the corkage fee. Menu was diverse and everything looked good. They had a seasonal menu attached, which is what we chose our entrees from. Prices for the entrees ranged from the high teens to the mid thirties. Plenty of choices in the $20-25 range. The house sald was excellent at $8 and the tomato bacon soup was tempting. This is now our go-to place in the area for upscale dining at affordable prices! There are a lot of choices nearby, but this place is the best. Great food, well presented, attentive staff and beautiful dining room helped make our night wonderful.

Thank you for your comments on Trip Advisor. I appreciate all feedback and am very glad your experience was so pleasant. I will discuss this review with my wine manager and have her take a look to make sure all the wines are adhering to our corporate formulas and see if there are any opportunities for more price friendly wines.
