A good range of well chosen dishes that showcase their cooking style. It was nice that there were specials as well - although I would have preferred if these had been written down (on a board or temporary menu) rather than presented by the waitress. Flavours were bright and distinct but well balanced. Our kale salad was zingy and fresh... More

We just walked by & toke a chance on this cozy looking Italian Restaurant. We ended up having wonderful, surprisingly delicious food including outstanding raviolis, hearty gnocci and a fantastic eggplant dish. Nothing better than seeing your entire family happy over a wonderful dinner.

When you visit this restaurant they will tell you the specials - and then things get really interesting. Their menu is so good, food is outstanding, and the... More

We recently had dinner here with a party of five. From the minute we arrived, everything went amazingly well. Eggplant appetizer was fresh and tasty. (made you want more) All of our entrees were delicious! Not one complaint. The sauce had a great flavor. The veal saltimbocca was the best my husband has had. Thinly sliced veal very tender and...
