The food is excellent.Service great. A little noisy. Would have preferred a table away from the loud crowd in the center of the room

The Bread Dipping oil was too watery. I thought V's Italian was much better. This place was OK. But I probably won't go back.

I met some local friends for birthday celebration here. The waitstaff was friendly and attentive, and there was a nice selection of mid range wines. I was disappointed that caprese salad was not on the menu, and my Alfredo dish was mediocre at best. My dinner companions were happy with their meals, so I'd give this place one more try,... More

Atmosphere is great but the food is not so good. I love Italian and can honestly say this is by far the worst I have had in the Kansas city area. The pasta sauce was so this k, yet really had no flavor at all, my husband had a completely different dish and didn't like his either. Service was also... More

We stop for lunch... More

We chose this restaurant because of all the great reviews. I'm really glad this independent restaurant does well, but I'm just offering a different view. While the portions were ginormous, we found the food super salty in lieu of actual flavor (and we ordered the chicken spiedini based on the reviews). I had wanted to ask about their wines, but...

This is a great Italian restaurant. Food is all good, but the spedini is wonderful. You can even get a half order on most menu items if you don't want leftovers to take home. Try an Italian Margarita. They are wonderful. Service is just as good as the food.

Service good, people good and the food was good. It wasn't what I would call excellent just good. Good atmosphere and it was a nice place for a special occasion if the food was better.

Not knowing there are a lot of Italian population in Indepemdence, we were told by hotel owner Italian will be a good food choice. As the suggestion given by the hotel and my own research match, we decided go for Italain food for the night. We chose the one is closer to hotel and have higher review by Yelp, the... More
