Two adults and a 3 1/2 year-old went the other evening and had a wonderful meal. The garlic aioli with the bread is a thing of the past, and many of us will miss it. The seasoned oil that replaced it is a good substitute, though. The restaurant has an uncertain future in its current location, due to water problems... More

Italian food as good as we have had in Chicago. We make it a point to eat here whenever we visit Augusta.

We went to this restaurant on a recommendation from the hotel we stayed at and it was the best pizza I've ever had. The atmosphere is romantic with indoor and out door seating. Service was quick and the wait staff were the very best. We can't wait to go back.

Good food, good service, good portions. Prices are a bit high on some of the menu items, but it can be worth it once in awhile.

During a walk on the Kennebec Rail Trail we stopped for lunch. The special was for a 14" cheese pizza for $10 and we added two half portions of salad. Locally grown greens were a treat. All was delicious, but the pizza was exceptional!

Having lived in Sicily for three years, we usually avoid Italian in the states, but this was our only chose on the fourth on vacation. Yeah for us as it was amazing. It was like being back in Sicily. The owner is from the Agrigento area, so it was good. They also have a good selection of Sicilian wine. Loved... More

Not what I expected for the money- way too expensive for what I got. My veal was not cooked enough & every thing is extra. Twice I have been there & been disappointed- I won't go back. The service isn't great & neither is the food.

Very friendly service in a nice quiet authentic setting. Wouldn't be surprised if there was an Italian grandmother in the kitchen! Nice portions, obviously fresh ingredients prepared with care. The veal al limone was excellent!
