Good Italian restaurant for the deep South. Try the appetizer platter. That and a salad are a meal for most. However, the entree's are all good also. Good wine list and great staff.

We are lunch here during our business trip! The steak sandwich was absolutely divine! It was so tender! It would melt in your mouth! We had a party of eight and everyone was pleased with their food! With our group that's very hard to do!

I am not sure if they accept reservations. I ordered a birthday surprise dinner and dessert for a college student. He put the thumbs up for the meal.
