Very, mediocre. I've been to countless authentic Italian restaurants since I was a little kid so maybe I have high expectations. Food is ok at best and overpriced. Atmosphere is nice and the place looks clean. I'll never go back though. There are plenty of...More

Wow. This is a wonderful restaurant. The waitress said their ravioli is homemade. Salad and bread were also very very good.

This review rest on TWO simple statements The pasta sauce simply SUCKS. Pureed canned tomatoes and garlic powder do NOT a pasta sauce make. The chicken parm should be pounded THIN. I have no clue as to the "raves", perhaps numbed taste buds.
