A bit of a hole in the wall with a dark atmosphere that serves cold drinks and excellent Italian. Highly suggest the fried ravioli.

The service was great. Lovely servicer, very sweet and totally on her game. The food timing was prompt. The food though was just ok. Not one of us was blown away. I walked away feeling like I had a lead brick in my stomach. The food wasn't awful just not great. But the restaurant was very crowded so maybe it... More

On our annual girls weekend we rented a house near here, our landlord recommended coming here. After touring on the bourbon trail, it was so nice to park the car where we were staying and take in the evening with a nice walk to this restaurant. Many choices on the menu. The food was very good and made me homesick... More

best place for an extra large bowl of carb therapy. the only downside is it's a pretty small place so don't go with a group larger than 4 and expect to get seated easily or at all. We tried to have a work event there and they did not take reservations and were so unhappy about our large group we... More

My husband and I brought our kids to eat here tonight and everything was awesome! The hostess was friendly and we were seated immediately and where we wanted to sit. Our server was funny and the service was great. We ordered the wontons, crab cakes and bread sticks to start and everything was soooooo yummy! My husband ordered the linguini... More

They open at 4:30 p.m:).....I ordered the combination of meat and cheese Ravioli-I enjoyed the cheese much better than the meat, next time I will only get cheese. The sauce is delicious. My friend ordered the chicken alfredo and it was wonderful! No salad comes with the meal, only a bread stick. Can't wait to visit again....

Luckily the food is good because the service is hit or miss here. They get VERY busy sometimes so wait times can be long. The last visit I made here I believe someone in my party asked for a water halfway through the meal and they had run out of clean glasses due to the high volume of customers they... More

The fried ravioli appetizer was to-die for. The sauce should be sold to in to-go jars. I ate the portobello sandwich and am taking 1/2 home for tomorrow. He has the meatball sub and tore it up. Go there now. You won't regret it.

If you like Italian food and are in Louisville this is the place to go. Not pretentious at all. Just solid food at a great price. It's definitely off the main path by being in a Germantown neighborhood, but that is all part of the ambiance. My go to is the pasta of the day, unless the calzones are a... More
