I am so pleased to have stumbled upon this restaurant while traveling for business. The waiter was excellent and the food was as well. I especially loved the Broadway music that played. I will definitely be back if I'm in the area again.

We arrived shortly after the opening at 5 PM and were placed at a nice booth. The atmosphere was dim with nice décor. Our waiter Daniel was very prompt and attentive throughout the dining experience. The salad was fresh and abundant. The chicken entrée and the tuna were excellent. The lava cake finished our meal in filling fashion. The restaurant... More

A Valentine's Day dinner for four. The intimate atmosphere and friendly staff made for a most comfortable and enjoyable evening. We began with an antipasto plate that easily sufficed for the table, along with a very nice house Chianti. The menu is varied and contains all the standard Italian dishes (pastas, parmigianas, etc,) as well as dishes which would be... More

My wife and I and another couple were visiting Hot Springs and the proprietor of the B$B where we stayed recommended this place for dinner. And what a great rec it was! This is Italian like you imagine it should be but rarely get. The marinara which covered my veal parmesan on a bed of angel hair pasta may be... More

The mussels were great. Split the salad. The portions are huge. My wife ordered the Lobster and she could not eat all of it. I... More

This was our first visit. The food is good, no question. It's all about the marinara and they have a superb one. As for ambience, I could do without the loud Italian music that goes well beyond background noise and I could certainly do without the big screen TV showing images of Italy as if we were all sitting in...

We went because hotel recommended it. No reservation was made. They were terribly understaffed once the reservations began to arrive. We waited 45 min for a steak-good thing we said bring the other food as it was ready. Took the steak to go. Food was great, server apologetic. House Merlot was fruity.
