My husband and I went here, while staying at the WinStar and reading that this was a “hidden gem” in Gainesville (only 10-12 minutes from WinStar). I’m SO GLAD WE WENT!!! It was awesome and is literally only topped by my Grandma’s homemade raviolis! I...More

Good Italian food for the locals. Their roles are some of the best roles that I have ever tasted. Every dish that I have ordered here has been cooked to perfection and has a good flavor of home-cooked Italian food.

This little family run restaurant is a hidden gem. We’ve eaten here before but they absolutely topped themselves on our most recent visit. Sure the decor is a bit outdated but it’s clean and comfy. I love that it’s BYOB so we can bring a...More
