We had our second grandson graduation dinner here again and it was great. The service was wonderful, the food was excellent. I wished my wife would at least try a different dish but she says that the veil pancetta is so good why try any...More

We visited here on a food tour with Columbia Food Tours. We visited this restaurant along with 5 others. We had the Italian egg rolls and the best tiramisu I’ve ever had.

Hadn't been here in a couple years (just because of location, etc., not because of food or service)...pleased with it this time as in the past. Calamari appetizer was perfectly cooked, salmon risotto from specials was tasty. Positive, proactive service, including management checking on us...More

This restaurant is in an old fire station/house and has so much character. Had a fantastic antipasto salad and and a small pizza. The salad was very large and very delicious. Wasn't thrilled with the pizza, but was too full from the salad anyway. Another...More
