“Great Italian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

I have eaten here on four occasions and have had amazing food and service each time. The price is fantastic for the quality of the food. The chef frequently comes out to introduce himself and make sure you're enjoying his creations.

I love their seasonal menu and return each time they change it. They also have wine flights which are samplings of several wines for a great price. My favorite appetizer is the carpaccio, it's too good to share.

“Overpriced, but nice ambience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

I can't see paying over $20 for a pasta dish, although the environment is nice.

“Very good Italian food with some innovative dishes, good pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

We were here on a Friday night. Thankfully had reservations as the place was packed. The only down side is that we were a party of 5 adults, seated at a table clearly meant for 4. So very crowded, coupled with it being quite dark and noisy made it a bit uncomfortable.
The food however was good to excellent. I had the arugula and goat cheese salad which combined 2 of my favorite things and was outstanding. My son had the caprese, and the tomatoes looked very fresh which is good for April in Oklahoma. Nice large amt of buffalo mozzarella. I couldn't see well enough to see the other salads!
For main dish, I had the pumpkin ravioli. It was just ok--a good flavor, but absolutely no sauce and it was supposed to have sage, but I couldn't find any. My son had a ravioli with chicken and pesto which I took a bite of, and it was much better. Creamy pesto sauce but not too heavy. My husband had an absolutely delicious pizza, which he shared a piece of with me. The crust was really nice, wood fired. I would definitely order it again.
Wine list was reasonable.
