“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

We went here by accident, just looking for a bite to eat near our hotel after a tough travel to Nashville.
So we were quite surprised when this was great, amongst the best italian food we have had since our honeymoon to Italy in 2009.
We shared the calamari to start. I had the scallops and hubby had the black spaghetti and it was all brilliant. Lovely stuff.

“One of my new favorites!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

I've been 4 times. The caesar salad and the Black spaghetti are not to be missed! Great atmosphere, wonderful and knowledgeable staff, and creative, delicious dishes. This restaurant is near the top of my list. GO!

“It's not what you think, but go anyway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

It isn't often you fight over Brussel sprouts, but we did here. Don't be afraid of the blueberry lasagna, it's rich but doesn't taste like blueberries at all. The black spaghetti was really good and it had a spicy kick. This isn't traditional Italian as you probably think of it, so keep that in mind. The service makes the place. Our hostess got us in without a reservation and had a great personality. Our server Matt is truly a culinary advisor and took excellent care of us. Don't stress about being casually dressed. Valet parking is free.

“Fair food and service...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

It is a trendy Itslian/southern spin restaurant that comes close but misses the ark on very good..the Tagliatelle was soft, pasty and not laden te..it was stuck together. The meat and cheese misto was actually quite nice but would like to see some hard cured meats. The sides were not that great. Potatoes and beans. The service was fair but not that attentive.seemed to be spread thin. Will not try again but I like either pure Italian or pure southern...snot want carbonara southern style..sorry. Also 180 dollars with one bear and no desserts...expensive for two.

“Top quality food, service & atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

Love the gnocchi! This restaurant is one of the best in Nashville. Love the decor, and best of all the food and service are top notch. My daughter, ordered the Blueberry Lasagna, which is one of the most creative dishes I've ever tasted! I will definitely order the Lasagna next time, but it will be hard to not have the gnocchi, again. This will be my go-to restaurant!
