Multiple meals and events at this restaurant have all been enjoyable whether it is a quiet meal with my wife, a small group of friends, or celebrating a family event. Great food, good wine, and competent friendly service are always on the menu. Highly recommend.

I can count on consistency for great service and food. It's contemporary Italian and can be mid to pricey. Nice for a girls night out or special family celebration!

Nice to see a menu with some interesting twists on Italian cooking. The red sauce was very good as was the Veal Ragu. Served well (without being intrusive) by entire staff in a pleasant environment with appropriate background music. We finished the dinner by sharing a Pineapple Sundae. Excellent!

Visited with a friend who took us here for a late lunch/early dinner. Whoa! From the bread to the salad to the main meal, it was all so impressive. The waitress was friendly and helpful and the dessert menu looked so tempting but we were so stuffed! Hot, delicious food. If we ever come this way again, will want to... More

Offering both indoor and outdoor seating, the restaurant enjoys a robust clientele - most nights the parking lot is full. The classic dishes are very good - I recommend the lasagna - hand made with delicate layer upon layer of pasta.

This place is a gem, and who knew such a place existed in little old Newtown. The service is excellent, the meals are even better. The place gets busy so you almost require a reservation, but it's certainly worth it. They even have a rewards program to entice you to come back. For locals like us it is an extra... More

Atmosphere is very nice, food is very good, service was also very good. One of the better restaurants in the area. However, also very expensive for the area, and there are other places which are about as good, at much more reasonable prices. A good place for special occasions.

Thank lee_2000_usa
