The food and service were fantastic. So glad we found this place. The food was as good as what you would expect across the river on the hill.

Good Italian Food, great for families, good service, take reservations,. Only regret was ordering the Sea Scallops Dinner. I was surprised that all I had on my plate was five scallops. They were not even medium sized. Mentioned this to my waiter, Jarrelln but nothing changed. Won't worder them again.....$27.95 was too much for five scallops.

The reviews were on point, but we were still surprised with how great this restaurant was. Our family had dinner with my parents, so they can accommodate larger parties. Server was great. Took care of us but didn't hover. The food. Amazing. Brushetta was really good. Entrees were fantastic. We ordered the Chicken Mudiga and a side of brussel sprouts...husband... More

We were a large group of family. The staff was especially attentive and friendly. This trait is important to me. The food was just above average, not exceptional. The atmosphere was very bright and had a roadside diner style ambience. I had the beef Tony. Meat was cooked perfectly. Dish was covered in sauce which took away from the flavor.... More

Started out well with the bruschetta , which was tasty. Went down hill at the caprese salad, no flavor what so ever. Got the mains and my wife's chicken marsala was horrible to say the least and my spaghetti carbonara was horrible, I paid $18 for a soupy mess of heavy cream sauce with linguini noodles...our waiter was awesome, however,...

Overlook the bland, strip mall appearance of this Italian restaurant. Once inside, a nice atmosphere and tasty food await. The menu is big and varied. The house salad is really good with chunks of prosciutto ham and tasty dressing. We had pasta dishes and a chicken dish, all really good. They make a very good red sauce! Cheesecake for dessert...

I had the chicken Parmesan. The chicken and sauce were ok, but nothing special. The salad was horrible. There was way too much dressing on it. Probably would have been good with less dressing. The lemon drop martini was excellent. I'd come back for a drink, but that's about it.

Met friends for dinner on a Saturday night. Originally had a reservation for 9. Flu and a death in the family lowered that number to 6. (note: They only accept reservations for large parties). They were setting up our table when we arrived 5 min. early. We went to the bar, ordered a drink and they seated us as soon... More
