I have eaten here many times, beer, small flatbreads and bruschetta all delicious. atmosphere is hip and casual, outside dining nice and can fit a large group with some notice. This place is always an easy choice when not sure where to go.

We love the atmosphere of this place. The service is great and the food is good. It's a little challenging to find parking but it's worth it.

Dined there on a Saturday night and have no complaints other than the prevalence of ugly tatoos on most of the waitresses. Good salad and tasty homemade tagliatelle bolognese washed down with several glasses of Graffigna Reserve Malbec. Reasonable prices and an attractive room.

I was part of a business gathering and the restaurant set us up with a wide variety of appetizers and selections from the menu. The gathering was a stand up / networking opportunity, so the wait staff took drink orders and replenished the food as needed. It seemed as if they provided at least one of everything that included meats,... More

My goat cheese pear salad was incredible! Hubby had heirloom beat and tomato salad and he loved it. We enjoyed our margarita pizza although we were not too hungry after our salads... But we ate it later and it was very good.

I was there with family ranging from 10 to 60 and everyone really enjoyed the place. The atmosphere is very relaxed and all our food was excellent. The service was a bit slow but everything came out perfect.

Second trip to this Italian restaurant in the Mill Ave area of Tempe. Ordered a caesar salad to go with my pizza. Was disappointed to see it come with tomatoes (caesar salad should NEVER have tomatoes), but was really disappointed when my salad arrived frozen. Notified staff and they verified that all of their salads were frozen (mistakenly). Thanked me... More
