I have eaten here about 8 times since it opened 4+ years ago. When I first went there was a manager there & I had a few disappointing meals. Now the owner is there full time & things are better. But my wife being a consummate Italian would rather cook at home! So I went the other night & had... More

Each of the 4 of us had a delightful dinner. The chicken parm, salmon, chicken broccoli & ziti and the veal Marsala were delicious. Salads were fresh, waiter staff efficient. Excellent wines ! We look forward in visiting again

Decided to go here based upon a recommendation of a friend. After being seated, decided to have the appetizer with avocado and tuna. The dish was swerved with an avocado filled with feta cheese and the tuna on the other side of the plate covered with a sauce that had minimal flavor. I thought that the sauce took away from...

Food inconsistent, staff inconsistent, just inconsistent! There are many choices in the area so my advice is to make a different choice.....

My wife and I ate here last week. We had a groupon coupon. The food was very good for the both of us. she had veal and I had a spicy pasta. We both enjoyed the food and the service. The owner inquired as to our needs and made us feel welcome.

It was a Sunday night and we called ahead to make a reservation. We were told that a reservation was not needed. Upon walking into the restaurant, we were told there was a 20 minute wait... More

Food was good, but far from enough to overcome the strip-mally feel and decor, mediocre-at-best service, and uncomfortable noise level.

Nice small restaurant, good choice for lunch.Try a grilled panini - there's a special one each day. Small selection of traditional entrees as well. Good serving size, budget frindly pricing and pleasant service.

Great food, but very disappointed last evening by our waitress. We were celebrating a 25th birthday and the waitress saw presents being opened, toasts being made etc.. I had a reservation which included the fact that it was a birthday (they even asked for the name so they could sing). We ordered dessert and I talked with the waitress prior... More
