“Good pasta at good prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

An unpretentious italian bistro with hearty great tasting pasta. They let you build your own dish if you want. They pass my gnocchi test- not too hard and not too soft so they know what to do with pasta. Good for families and friends to eat without breaking the bank.

“Great restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

The food was really delicious. The service was great and the atmosphere was soothing (not too dark or too bright). My wife and I will definitely come back to this wonderful place.

“Always great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

We love this restaurant because of the food and the availability through OpenTable. We are always able to bypass the lines with our reservation. They are known for their meatball appetizers. We had build your own pasta and pizza on this visit. Always great food and great wine selections.

“Absolute Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2013

I was shocked when I learned that it had only been open for such a short period of time. The atmosphere was great and the food and service was excellent. The waiter told me that the house best were the meatballs and man o man - did not disappoint. Also, very affordable wine prices. Personally, I'd like to see them chill the reds a little before serving - but honestly, that is minor in comparison to how great everything else was.
