“Good Italian Food!!!”

I was there for lunch and it was a good experience. The enviroment of the restaurant is sofisticated, with good space and warm atmosphere... the food was really good, I fully recommend the pasta.

“Good place.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

My husband and I went there for early diner. The food and the atmosphere were good. Food was good but not extraordinary. They bring this bread, nice, warm and buttery with Mozzarella cheese inside of it. We were ordering: Calamari Fritti and salad (average), Veal Saltimbocca (good dish) and Scallop Salad (very good). The owner kept checking to make sure we were enjoying the food. The pizza maker keeps the kids busy. They also give you Italian bread on your way out. Will definitely go back...

“Thank goodness for Chef Henry!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

A grown up restaurant where the kids can play with their food! A full Italian menu with full bar and Chef Henry lets the kids play with pizza dough and pick their own pizza shape. From hearts to peace signs to Mickey Mouses, the kids love it. And them an ice cream sundae to top it off! A great spot!

“Consistent Winner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

This is "our" local go-to place. Food is always great, as is the service. It's not inexpensive, but it's very reliable. They serve a great loaf of warm, garlic cheese bread to start. Tasty.

We've have their fish / meat / pasta / salad dinners - - all good. They are also very willing to customize any entree to fit your particular tastes.

“Pasta everywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Adults enjoy pasta and other Italian specialties while the children create their own special pizza with Chef Henry. Great family place.
