“So So”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012 via mobile

After all the hype on trip advisor I was expecting something great. The service was but the food was mediocre. Too heavy on cheese and oil. But eat some place else and stop in for the gelato..it was fantastic

“Nice Italian restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Had dinner there based on hotel clerk recommendation. The tood was good and more than you could eat. Dinner included a salad and bread. The wine list is a little weak but livable.

“Will be back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

This is by far the best Italian food we've ever had! The food was tasty and portions were large. Our server was great! He was very attentive and made sure our refills kept coming! The enviroment is warm and inviting and very cozy. We will drive the two hours from home to eat here again!
