We were in town visiting our daughter who was craving Italian. She researched and found this little gem. It has a small menu and with four of us ordering and tasting different things I can tell you it was all delicious. We were greeted warmly and the service was perfect. Chef came out and visited with us. A wonderful experience.... More

We have heard a number of great things about this place...esp from our friend who owns a local restaurant in the area. We have tried to go a few times and they have been swamp. The cards were in our favor tonight as we decided on a last minute date night. My husband called and they said come on in.... More

Nice Italian restaurant. 29 dollars for 2 courses and 36 for 3 courses. They had about 5 appetizers 3 salads and 8 main dishes. I had the ahi tuna, caesar salad and chicken parmagane. It was very good. My coworker had the veal scalopini. It was very good. This is a small restaurant and the chef talks to the patrons.... More

Found this place on trip adviser and would not have found it otherwise as its in an industrial estate. Do not be out of by this as the welcome was warm and the good fantastic. This was probably the best meal we had while on holiday as it was cooked fresh and served with a smile. Will definitely be back... More

Our first visit to this restaurant...off the beaten path...but certainly worth going to! The entrees were outstanding, especially the horseradish/blue cheese encrusted salmon! Everything was exquisitely prepared, served piping hot and was delicious. The panne cotta was the best I've had and could be accompanied by a variety of coffee drinks. Definitely will make a return visit. Chef Joseph has... More

This is an odd sort of place ... Italian, sort of. I guess it sees itself as higher end, so it doesn't have to offer mid-priced Italian dishes like cannelloni or pasta Bolognese. Nothing in the mid-price range. Pricing: two dishes for $29. three for $36. You can order two appetizers but you still pay $29! Yikes. Food was good.... More

Thirteen of us went to lunch here. The service was excellent, the food was delicious and the restaurant is small and cozy. We were in the private room. After we were done eating, the owner came in to talk to us. He is amazingly friendly and we enjoyed talking with him. Everyone enjoyed their meals. The restaurant serves beer and... More

A group of lady friends and I (there were 8 of us) went to Sasse's last week. It had been quite a while since most of us had been. Sasse's is hard to find on Evans Avenue and one of our group got lost. But, she did get there. Most of us ordered the Chicken Parmesan and it was excellent.... More
