My husband and I both ordered chicken dishes there tonight. The chicken was overcooked and did not have any flavor. Worst chicken vesuvio ever.

Our server, Janelle, was wonderful. She anticipated our needs before we even thought of them. She is a gem!! There were 4 of us friends out for an early dinner. One of the specials was Spinach and Artichoke Ravioli with chicken in a white wine sauce.. It sounded so good that we all ordered it. It was 3 ravioli and... More

The restaurant seemed quite dark when entering on a sunny summer evening, but the place is comfortable and cosy. The menu selection is nice, even if the pasta selection was limited (no tomato based sauce the day we dined there), and the food was good! We'll return to this restaurant :)

This is a great spot to eat at the bar. Friendly and knowledgeable bartenders and wait staff. The mushroom polenta is my favorite - I order it every time. Also, have dessert. The selections are pretty fantastic. It can be very busy on the weekends, so go early. They also have outside seating if you like to dine "al fresco."

Only retried because the place next door was closed. Very pleased that we gave it another try. The surely staff has left, and if management is the same, the have been cured of their indifference. Drinks were perfect, food well worth the charge. Prices all seem to be moderate. Very glad I can re-add them to our list of local... More

This classic Italian restaurant is a loved mainstay of the area. The food is excellent and the specials are really special. The ambiance is good with a small bar area and a nice happy dinner vibe in the dining room.

We used to love this place. Food has always been good. We have gone here for a long time but something quite terrible has happened. There has to be new management because we have been treated very rudely the past two years. Hostesses are young girls (last night the one they had spent her time taking pictures on her cell... More
