“True Italian decor with Italian background music.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2012

Great upscale Italian restaurant but with moderate prices. Great atmosphere and decor. Sometimes the waitress sings opera between serving tables.

“Great atmosphere...but crowded and noisy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2011

Would've gotten 5 stars if not for how closely placed the tables are. With people nearby it's tough to have a 'nice, quiet evening' here. Service was very good, food was EXCELLENT and it wasn't high priced.

“Food was GREAT! Service was terrible!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2011

I would have gave a higher rating if not for the seating being too crowded and the restrooms were not clean. Our waitress was not friendly or prompt, however the food was delicious...Best Pizza in town! :) Good wine selection and a nice atmosphere.

“Rip-Off”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2011

Wife and I went here for a romantic dinner for 2; told the waiter we would like to SHARE one dinner between the 2 of us and we were told by the waiter it would cost $ 5 more to split a meal. The wife stated she would just eat her salad as her dinner and avoid the $ 5 split dinner fee. However, waiter and then the manager told us they were going to charge us the $ 5 anyway, even if we didn't split the dinner. We said "What, No, No" and got up to leave when the waiter then stated, Oh, I talked to the manager and he took off the $ 5 charge, but then at the end of the dinner, we were told their "computer" had to charge us one full salad plate charge, vs. 2 small salad plate charges. Enough said. This is typical for a cow town restaurent.

“Very good indeed!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2011

The canneloni florentine, the green salad and the Pinot Noir were excellent, the service was prompt
and friendly, and the price was OK - not excessively steep. I'll be back.
