This is our go to Italian restaurant in Carmel IN. Always good food with some dishes you don't get in other Italian restaurants. Shrimp francese is my favorite! Depending on the crowd, the service can be slow.

Bread is fresh and I think pasta is as well. The dish was nice and the sauce wasn't too heavy. The place was almost empty though and not sure why - middle of the day for lunch. There's a place that's not too far that...More
