This place is beautiful inside. The dinner & dessert was delicious. We did not have to wait to be seated and our food came quickly. Our server could have been a little friendlier but ok.

This restaurant serves very good pasta and marinara sauce. We have always enjoyed having lunch here but yesterday the service was way below standard. After waiting 40 minutes for our food the waitress came over and asked what we ordered. She asked if we had the manager's special. I don't believe she knew what we ordered. My husband had to...

first time to this restaurant. interesting interior, obviously an old building repurposed. where we were seated was a little noisy, like a cafeteria. one paper napkin and ice tea in a plastic glass. wait staff was very good. no long wait for service or food even though fairly full (Sunday evening). menu stressed 3 course meal- bread, soup or salad,...

I went celebrate a friends birthday. Its a great place to meet friends but it it's an imposter for good Italian food. My pasta was overcooked and the sauce was too sweet. The only thing i liked was the dessert.

There was a huge convention, so many people. We got there before they opened, and waited, once in the door, we were seated within 5 minutes. They did a wonderful job at handling the crowds. The service was excellent. The food was very good and reasonably priced.

This has been a favorite place of ours for years. The location is easy to get to and there is a parking garage next door if you can't find street parking. The brown butter Mitzthra cheese dish is just so damned delicious. Plus you get a green salad, bread and butter, and ice cream for dessert included with your meal.

We were in town for a fine arts conference for the youth from our church. This place is right across the street from the convention center. It is in what looks to be a very old brick building. I am a mild history geek and love old buildings. The inside decor did not disappoint. You felt like you were in... More

This place was excellent! The prices were reasonable and the service was great. I highly recommend the Spinach Tortellini.
