A wonderful, quaint restaurant, but with very limited seating, with fabulous Italian food. With great food and limited seating, this is not your typical drop -in restaurant, or even the type of restaurant you can call an hour before to make a reservation, as this place always is booked. However, it is worth preplanning and booking early to eat at... More

Don't tell to many people how good this place is. It is hard enough to get a table. I used to think I had to drive a couple of hours to get food and service this good.

It was good food, but it cost more than what I was hoping for. It is a very small place so you would have to make a reservation. I would not go if you have a large group of people.

A friend and I were at the restaurant yesterday and ordered salads. We both enjoyed our delicious salads. I could only eat part of mine and took the rest home. We had a server who was most attentive.

Found by accident this quaint little Italian restaurant. Great food with very large portions. Call ahead as they are very busy & only seat about 40. Can hardly wait to go back soon & try something else. Great specials & desserts too.

The garlic knots and chocolate cake are second to none. The cheese tortellini I always order with a side of bolonici sauce AND a side of gorgonzola cheese sauce. Mixed together they are out of this world. This is a real taste of Italy in a little midwestern town and we are truly privileged to have this place here. I... More
