I have never given a restaurant 5 stars. I'd give 6 if I could. Service, ambiance and the food, ah yes the food! Six of us ordered different apps and entrees, and enjoyed every morsel and crumb. Going back Feb. 13 for more.

They may not make the pasta there, however they may purchase their pasta from local pasta makers like the Pasta Peddlers on Hertel Avenue, which by the way is very good.
