Service is friendly and professional. Muscle appetizer with pesto sauce was fantastic! Always have to have the Gorgonzola garlic bread. Wine was Renata Pino Noir and we topped it off with bread pudding better than my grandmothers!

I like their black pepper pasta. It's classic and incredibly tasty. The downstairs can feel a little claustrophobic, but I like the lighting and warmth; it's very romantic. Always a great trip.

Fabulous food! Be sure to have reservations on a weekend night. Try to get just the 'purest' varieties of the pastas--the fresh pasta and simple sauces were the best! I loved the gorgonzola warm bread and meatball. Yumster! Will definitely be back!
