Not only is the food amazing, the staff is friendly. They make their own pasta...try any of the ravioli, or if they have the “wild boar” bolognese as a special. The best I’ve had outside of Italy. The calamari appetizer, or the stuffed eggplant...omg.

We each had an incredibly authentic Italian pasta dish. The service was excellent, very accommodating. The restaurant was very lively with good atmosphere.

The only reason I rated this restaurant as a 4 rather than a 5 is because the noise is SOOOOOOOOOOOOO loud in side, that it's almost impossible to talk to your dinner partner(s). There's a small patio in the front but it's hard to get...More
