I have been coming here for years and do not let the strip mall location fool you. Upon entering you literally forget you are in a strip mall. There are large draperies on all the windows, it is roomy, beautifully decorated every Christmas season and the food is fabulous. You see and taste the quality in everything that is served.

We wanted an Italian dinner that would be worth the trip and this is the restaurant! You will pay a higher price for the meal but you will get your money's worth. It's not a "chain" style location, so you will get wonderful variety and even better quality. It might be a while before we return, need another family night... More

We wanted to celebrate a special occasion, so we decided to try this restaurant for the first time based on all of the rave reviews. We were not disappointed! The staff is very friendly and super attentive. The fresh bread and salad served before our meals were so good, but the best details are that they serve the bread with... More

The worst food I've ever been served. Ordered the special .was supposed to be prawns (ha) and scallops fettuccine. Shrimp came out uncleaned (gross). Sent back . Came back cleaned and ice cold . Scallops ice cold too. One bite was more than enough. Long time NO SEA! Horrible fishy possibly rancid. Left without eating dinner. No manager no apology.... More

In addition to the main entrée you ordered, you and your guest also ordered brochette as an appetizer, salads, two caramel apple martinis, and your guest enjoyed our Braciole Special. You both were pleased with all of this, as well... More

My wife and I had a wonderful meal. Staff and environment was pleasant. The Antipasto platter was delicious( wish we could order it as take out, it was a special for the evening !) We both had different risottos which were tasty. The desserts are awesome. The next time we go to Joliet we will make it a point to... More
