“Great food but very small spot. Good...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2010

Great food but very small spot. Good Italian food with some surprises. Only about eight or nine tables, so expect a wait of 45 mins or longer on peak days. Great wine list as well.

“One of the Most Fun & Delicious Places to Eat in C'ville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2009

We loved this retaurant...great food and an upbeat (if somewhat npisy) atmosphere. It is casual, reasonably priced and has very tasty food. I had the scallop dish, which was delicious and beuatifully presented and my wife and the veal shank -- both were super yummy.

“Great food and super service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2009

Casual and new italian dinning with superb food and quality service in Belmont section of C' Ville. Adequate wine list.

No reservation policy so you may have to wait awhile. Maybe a little "loud" to some but that's C' Ville and it is casual!

One of the better restaurants to open in "Hoo Ville" in the last couple of years.
