This seems to be a very popular place as it was fairly busy during dinner on a Tuesday. The Crustino was really enticing. The Monpoltocelo wine was very good. The Spaghetti Amatriciana was decent. My overall perception based on similar Trattorias is something was missing, although mostly good the meal seemed incomplete. Table service was poor. Granted it was the... More

We had an enjoyable dinner. They offer a nice menu- salads, appetizers, sandwiches, pasta dishes and entree dishes, desserts and coffee drinks. We started with a Caesar salad with grilled chicken. It was fresh and tasty. Next we had a small thin crust cheese pizza with mushrooms - also very good. The last dish we shared was pasta primavera(whole wheat... More

Pizza is good but menu is limited and pricey. Great gelato. Not comfortable seating and can't accommodate parties of 6

Our family of four with two kids ages 13 and 10 had lunch here on a Sunday. Located in a plaza, the interior is long and narrow with limited seating. The walls are painted in a Tuscan-themed plaster finish with murals of the Italian countryside. It's very casual and perfect for families. The many loud children added to the ambient... More

We had an enjoyable dinner. They have a nice menu- appetizers, salads, pasta dishes, entrees, pizza, drinks and desserts. We started with eggplant Rollantini- appetizer. We shared it- came with two. For dinner we shared a large whole wheat (crust) cheese and mushroom pizza. It was very good - very fresh and tasty. A very large serving- brought leftovers home.... More

I so hungry and ordered the most basic Italian fare for take out. Caesar salad- romaine was fresh and there were plenty of croutons, but there was no Parmesan, shaved or powdered. Angel hair with marinara. What a disaster. So far from al dente that it forked out like rice from the container. The sauce seemed to have nice flavor.... More

We came across this place while looking for a different restaurant. Boy was I glad the GPS took us this way. We were seated right away on a busy Friday night. We were greeted by our waiter fight away with some delicious Brushetta and fresh bread with dipping oil. It only got better from there. Everything that we ordered did... More

Easy parking, no wait, we selected the counter, and watched the pizza maker prepare the pies, about 30-40 a hour. We ordered some simple food; The waiter served bruschetta while we waited for our Pasta with garlic and oil which was cooked perfectly, tender pasta with chucks of garlic. We ordered a primvera pizza (without onions) unfortunately the pizza baker... More
