Every time we have been the food has been terrific - I recommend the steak. The service is great, it is a small, intimate atmosphere, and is really a wonderful treasure right in Bellevue. I would highly recommend.

Love this quaint little Italian restaurant outside of Nashville. We’ve had Tyler twice as a server and he always does a great job. Wine is great, food is delicious, and it’s always a plus when it’s a local, small business.
