When you first walk in it’s kinda underwhelming, due to the small size of the restaurant. However, the food did not disappoint! The food was fantastic and the wait staff was great, even though they were very short staffed. The portion sizes were large and...we definitely left full. The king lasagna was huge and delicious.More

We love to go to this local small Italian restaurant. I would recommend getting on the Yelp wait list, as you arrive in the parking lot, since it only offers about 15 tables. The wine list is good & the servers are awesome. I ordered...the Twisted ribeye & it was amazing. It was so big, I took half home for lunch the next day. My husband always says he is going to try something new, however, he usually gets the Chicken Parmasean. I also recommend the Champagne Lobster Ravioli. Great place.More

Very nice dinner with friends, and everyone enjoyed the meal. A great improvement over a year ago, and the service was excellent.

Chicago thin pizza square cut, Italian beef sandwiches, and Italian sausage sandwiches. My type of place. Service was very good. and the food was excellent. They should consider opening a restaurant in Henderson , NV.

I love places like this. Small, hole in the wall, family owned Italian food. Authentic, tasty, personal service. I ordered the Chicken Piccata. Excellent. I was surprised how tender the chicken was. Full of flavor. I had the Mediterranean Pasta split for my kids and...they gobbled it up. My wife ordered the pasta and meat sauce. She was hoping for just a little more meat in the sauce. And my other daughter ordered the kids spaghetti and meatball and was full just off the delicious meatball. We will be back again!More

Made a reservation for myself and four friends for a Friday night in October 2021 prior to arriving. Once checked in we were seated in 10 minutes. Although relatively small, this place packs a lot of punch and was very vibrant/lively. The drinks were amazing…I...didn’t get the bartenders name but it was a woman and the drinks were the best we’d had during our Girls Trip to Phoenix. I had a calzone for my entree and the Tiramisu for dessert. Both were great and were large portions. Would definitely return.More

Read their bio, and was excited they were from Chicago and the only place I have found in AZ that cuts their pizza in squares! Decided to give it a try and was not disappointed. Great antipasto salad, meatball sandwich and their chicken piccata I...can eat every day! I wish they would add baked clams and stuffed artichoke to make it true Italian! Have only ordered delivery due to Covid. Highly recommendMore

The 4 hostesses were frustrating as they seemed to do very little to help the flow and when they took our name and phone number for the wait they recorded it incorrectly and we didn’t get called. They tried to remedy the mistake and eventually...seated us and our waitress was very good, the food was very good but it was a lot to make up for....we would definitely give it another chance.More

Reviewed last year & said I'd be back. COVID got in our way - but we returned Friday night! Place was VERY busy (45-50 mins wait), but we opted for outdoor seating & got a seat ASAP. Eric was our server & was quite attentive...& helpful. Asked about their Root Beer (where did they purchase) and he returned & said from a supplier, but when they're out, they go to Fry's & purchase. It was VERY good. Chicken Picatta was quite good, angel hair with wine/butter/lemon sauce was delish, however Caesar Salad was a bit limp. Love that they are back in business again - and will return!!More

Phoned ahead of time being Friday and asked to be be put on wait list and said we were 5 mins out and they were able to accommodate us within minutes of arriving. Very busy so a good sign, Host Alex was great and very...friendly. After 40 mins of waiting we received our food. Very tasty but unfortunately not very hot. We mentioned to Alex when he asked how everything was. He offered to take it back but we said that we would have to wait another 40 mins and we were hungry, but if he could mention it to the staff in the kitchen. The plate itself was Luke warm. This is the reason that I did not score higher. We will go back and try again and hope that we have a hotter meal.More

We had eggplant parmigiana, lasagna, and risotto - all of them were great with large portions. Went back and got more cannolis the next day as they were so good!

Food was ok, but atmosphere was lacking. Very loud. Not really a place for a quiet special evening out to celebrate an anniversary. No craft beers available. No wait on this Monday night. Parking was crowded
