I have been here several times over the years but never did a review. This is one of my favorite Italian food places and I have yet to be disappointed with the food or the experience. We always order the bruschetta which is a little different, using a bread that looks like a flour tortilla but definitely not in its... More

This location is casual, seating is nicely spread apart that you don't feel like your convo is being heard from next seat. Food is here hearty, warm, fresh, and one of fav places to have italian. Wait staff is attentitive and friendly.

This place was "over the top" delicious. Our waitress was so informative about each dish. It helped me chose the perfect one. It was probably one of the best dishes I've had in a very long time. I just wish this place closer to where I live, because I would certainly make it a point to go there at least... More

Firstly, I want to praise Andre, the manager- we had a large party for dinner and had to change the number of people a couple of times and he was so friendly and accommodating. In fact, all the staff was great. And the food was fantastic. All the food we ordered (and it was a lot) was terrific. I can... More

We got lucky and found this place on a whim. I must say this was one of the best Italian restaurants we have been to in the last couple years. My daughters ordered the fettuccine alfredo, which is usually a pretty average dish, but like all good dad's I had to sample it to make sure it wasn't poisonous, and... More
