We enjoyed our dinner. The service and food were both good and I thought that the atmosphere was ok. We has a couple of appetizers, a cheese board and some olives. These were both very small and crazy expensive. They were so small that they should have been complimentary. Other than that our experience was positive.

A friend suggested this restaurant. We were very disappointed in the exterior appeal and condition of the parking lot. This is a VERY dark restaurant. Uncomfortable chairs, way over priced and small portions. One of the four of us enjoyed our meal. Will not go back.

I must say I was disappointed with this place after the other reviews and being one of the top Italian places in little rock. Portion of manicotti was small for price, chicken Marsala was lacking sauce and thickness. Tiramisu tasted off but chocolate molten cake was wonderful although I suspect it isn't made in house.

Excellent establishment. Wait staff was very professional. Both entrees were very good. Wine selection was good. Nice atmosphere, superior service, good food. It was as good as any other Italian Restaurant that I've been to.

The service here is impeccable. The atmosphere is great for conversation and relaxing. It's not so pretentious that you can't enjoy dinner in jeans but it's nice enough to bring a date if you're looking for something better than casual dining. The building is nice and clean. Parking is easy and ample. However, during our visit most of the food... More

We enjoyed it! The cheese board was excellent. Entrée very good. I had the lobster lasagna. It could have been a bigger portion. It seemed like more of a lunch sized serving. My wife had a veal dish that she enjoyed. Suggestion: Slow down on the service just a little. We felt a tad rushed. Overall I recommend this place

My wife and I went and felt the experience was... meh... The service was good, the atmosphere was that of an average restaurant trying to be fancy. This made everything feel cheap. Finally the food was definitely not worth the price. To conclude: if you would like good service for very bland and average food in a cheap atmosphere then... More

Had the snapper. I'm allergic to garlic so it was nice that they removed it from the dish for me. A lot of chefs won't do that. Fun atmosphere. Piano bar as well. Delicious canoli.

We went for our anniversary and it generally lived up to expectations. Staff were warm and welcoming and the food was quite good. Staff made sure we got a quiet corner table and that was appreciated. I asked for a Negroni, they did not know how to make it, I told them and they did it just right. Pasta was... More
