Very nice, intimate setting. Service was extremely slow in the middle of the week. The food was good, but not exceptional. Prices fair for the area.

Delicious meals!!! The indoor restaurant is small but quite cozy. The outdoor venue is an nice option also. The restaurant is on a side street off of Lawrenceville's Main Street so it can be hard to find but it is worth the search!

This lovely restaurant has a creative chef who serves authentic Italian cuisine. Service is attentive but not intrusive. Pasta is wonderful and his veal is very tender and cooked perfectly. This is definitely my go to place for Italian food.
