The absolute best marinara sauce ever! Everything tasted fresh. The Italian sausage and peppers are my favorite. The portion size is very generous. I was very hungry when I arrived. I still had some leftovers for the next day.More

The restaurant is in an old house so there are several intimate, dimly-lit dining rooms. The service was impeccable but the food was the star, of course. My tortellini was delicious and my companions enjoyed their dishes as well. The meal started with a huge...More

The atmosphere is really good, the serving staff is good, the food is just ok. The outdoor patio was really nice but too buggy. This is not where I would spend my money for a really good dining experience.More

Our 4th time here- amazing food and service. Kids really enjoyed the bread, and salad bowl you can serve “family style”. Filet, Lasagna, spaghetti with meatballs, eggplant Parmesan- all delicious! Had leftovers which we enjoyed the next day. Thank you- we will certainly come back!

Description
The restaurant, formerly a residence, was built in 1910. It features hardwood floors, 12' ft ceilings, and 5 fine dining rooms, three with fireplaces. We have a full selection of spirits and over 20 selections of wine. We also have a patio that seats 25 guests. We host weddings, rehearsal dinners, showers and parties. When you dine with us, we want you to have a dining experience rather than the typical restaurant that tries to turn tables as quickly as possible. We serve each course separately allowing you to relax, take in the ambiance, enjoy a glass of wine and savor every bite of Italian cuisine. When you leave our restaurant, we want you to remember what it's like to slow down, enjoy one another's company and realize how nice and relaxing dining can be. If you have other plans after dining with us, inform your server upon arrival and we can speed up your service. Dress is casual and reservations are recommended during the week and especially on the weekends.
