“Best pizza for miles and miles. And more!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012 via mobile

I don't think I've had anything bad here in the 5 years I've been coming. The pizzas are spectacular. We split an eggplant and goat cheese and the vegetarian, both of which were amazing. The appetizer was a threesome of sundried tomato spread, parmigiana zucchini, and fig and fontina bruscetta. All gear. The place is in a strip mall, but has a nice atmosphere that is really inviting and intimate. The service is always great. I can't think of one bad thing to say about this restaurant.

“They dropped by ball”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012

Took family of 4 for dinner. We had drinks, a bottle of wine and 4 entrees. Service was a little slow, but adequate. Salad was wonderful, as was the veal dishes. However, the entrees were served with spinach when pasta would have been a better choice in our opinion. The big disappointment was the wine service. We ordered a moderately priced malbec which came with white wine glasses. We said nothing until the table next to us had the proper glassware. I brought it to the attention of our server, and got a multitude of reason, none of which we found acceptable.This is too good a restaurant to miss the boat on something so elementary.

Tasty Italian cuisine, good service. A little pricey but you get what you pay for here.

“Delicious meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

Ordering the Spaghetti Cicchetti was a great choice as I dined at this restaurant for the first time. Prior to the meal, different bread types are provided for use with the olive oil and pepper. The spaghetti came with a meatball and several pieces of sausage in a LARGE bowl. It was enough to feed three people and very good. Need to return some time for a salad, so that I will be able to try some of the dessert choices. Decor was nice but slightly dim when trying to read the menu and bill.

“Americanized Italian Fare”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

The restaurant is located in a nice upscale strip mall. Upon entering the restaurant it was a little too dark. I don't like brightly
lighted restaurants but this was overly dark. The food was overly salted and the veal saltimbocca was drenched in a heavy brown sauce. The spinach under the veal was cooked perfectly but overpowered with the sauce. Our buttersquach ravioli was also drenched in too much butter and oil. The wine and bread
were excellent however the server was a liitle ostentatious. With
some adjustments this rating could improve.
