The entire Arizona Center is under construction making it difficult to get to this restaurant. It was nearly empty but the food and service is good as usual.

The service here is very good and the pizzas are excellent. I do find it strange that an Italian restaurant does not serve espresso?

I dined here with a large group on a Monday night. I had some delicious salmon. I couldn't eat most of the appetizers because they had gluten in them, but what I could eat was really good. I also had an excellent margarita.

What a relief to find a restaurant that does not over face you with huge plates of food. Pleasant surroundings, nicely decorated and a good menu, enjoyed the lobster ravioli with prawns. Pleasant waiter, good wine list.
