Met friends here for dinner and was very pleased with the quality of food and atmosphere. The best Chicken Parmigiana I’ve had, my wife had eggplant parmigiana and loved it. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting a good Italian meal.

We stopped here because we love Italian. All the pasta, everything is made on site. Top notch attentive service. Had the gnocchi. My wife the scallops. Tender scallops, really tasty gnocchi. It's hidden a bit in a mall worth finding. You won't be disappointed.

There were a couple of tables with kids. One had rather young children, the other was a bit above toddler age. I don't see a problem, there are different seating area, i.e. not in the bar, itself.

There was no dress code. I wore jeans; the couple next to my table were wearing more dressy clothes. Wear what makes you feel comfortable. I would suggest nothing with holes or graphic art.
