If you can afford to eat out during COVID, SUPPORT THIS BUSINESS! My mom and I were traveling from CA and they stayed open late to allow us to order takeout and they even offered us the option to dine-in! This was all after they...had closed. The male host with curly hair, male brunette bartender, and female brunette waitress (we didn’t get names) were so incredibly friendly, we would go back just to hangout with them. The staff is seriously so wonderful! THE FOOD. You can’t go wrong with the pasta carbonara or cacio e pepe—both were divine! Their bread service (even as takeout) was wonderful as well! Even the olives and almonds were delish. Please please please dine in or order take away from this restaurant! The experience overall was amazing!More

FIrst time here and to celebrate my 65th Birthday! Robert and our server, Garrett, were very welcoming and friendly and Jonathan Krell's food was superb!! We had the grilled artichoke app, I had the scallop special and my husband had the mezza w/fennel sausage. Everything...was so good! We were too full for dessert, but they presented me with a huge slice of homemade Almond Cake w/cherry sauce to take home. I am having it now, for breakfast, as I write this review and it is the best!!!! Thank you, for a relaxed, lovely evening!!More

Cheerful and gracious staff show you to your table that is isolated with nice curtains for less sound and better privacy. Excellent appetizers, delicious special and several main courses accompanied by a varied and delicious bar menu. Had to skip the dessert this time, but...was wonderful last visit. Thanks Tamara and the rest of the staff for a great evening! A great place for your first trip out...More

We were looking for a special place for lunch while visiting OKC. We found it! Everything was amazing from the bread to the pasta. And the service is exceptional. We will go again!

My wife and I have eaten here several times. It is our most favorite restaurant in OKC and some of the most delicious serving we have ever eaten. Please try the grilled octopus as an appetizer, it was the wonderful appetizer we have ever eaten....All the food was over the top delicious which unfortunately made dessert anticlimactic. Romantic with great staff!More

In OKC and love italian cuisine? Look no further, this is your place! The cured meat and cheese plate is delicious and the smoked mushrooms risotto is just amazing. Service was very good and nice atmosphere. See you next year for the NRHA Futurity :-)

Lovely restaurant, friendly service. The bread came out and it was wonderful. Ordered a salad, literally spinach and lite drizzle of dressing. Nothing else. We asked the server for chopped onion he told us they did not have any. Really? Husband ordered. Pasta came out...small dry portion. $20 for a lunch size portion? I ordered roasted veggies with sauce. This came out with sautéd veggies that were basically done crunchy almost raw. A tiny drizzle of sauce. I sent it back. Not edible. I ordered a cup of soup for dinner. Then we left. Not as good as we hoped.More

Went for dinner this evening; let’s start with the great! Robert was an absolute gem! He greeted us at the door and was charming and delightful! The ambiance was pleasantly subdued with a feeling of privacy even though we were sitting at a regular table....The decor was simple and pleasing with lovely art on the walls. We started with potato and baccala, which is essentially fried mashed potatoes mixed with salt cod. It was delicious! We also had beef carpaccio as an appetizer. The beef carpaccio was good. Not great, but good. We then had a charred carrot and fennel salad that was delightful! For entrees we had spaghetti with Bolognese sauce which was pretty good. Our son had piccola e bistecca. A very succulent steak with an assortment of roasted veggies over red pepper romesco that was fabulous! Now, for the stars of the show: Smoked Mushroom Risotto and the Seared Scallops and Butternut Squash Orzo! We are hard pressed to choose between the two; they were both amazing! The perfect blend of salty and sweet with such a silky mouth feel! We ended the evening with a gelato sundae (don’t pass go: save room for this and split it amongst 4 people! YUM!) and Affogato, which is gelato with a shot of espresso and an Italian pignoli and almond cookie! Over all the food was solidly good! It is evident the chef is passionate about what they are doing! The only negative thing I have to report is out waiter really, really rushed us. This is an expensive meal and meant to be savored with good company in a relaxed and lingering manner. But, the food was brought so fast, it felt difficult to sit and enjoy. We were in and out in less than an hour and we felt our waiter just wanted us to be gone. Hopefully, a Robert can can take him under his wing and teach him how to make customers to feel like comfortable.More

Definitely OK! It's a nice place, but I would say dress shorts would be more than appropriate with this heat!
