Cute little restaurant with delicious Italian food. Excellent service! Very small so there may be a short wait, but it was worth it.

If you feel like a good Italian meal I don't believe this restaurant delivers. Very ordinary tomato sauce and dry meatballs for a not cheap price. Forget about a good red wine to go with your meal.

The oustdide seating is fantastic to socialize, have a wine spritzer and share a meal with friends. We highly suggest the mushroom risotto, incredible! The service is well timed and on point. The drinks and entres are appropriately priced. The restaurant inside is a bit small but the outdoor option completely makes up for it.

We really like this restaurant. Just a nice feel with very good food. Yes, the portions are small for the price. But...WAIT... Yesterday, we went by for lunch. They have a special price menu for $23.00US. It includes a choice of 2 salads or a soup. There was about 5 pasta dishes to choose from, along with 3 pizza choices.... More

We started with the Gamberetti and avocado salad and bruschetta; followed by fettuccine and spaghetti; accompanied by classic Italian music; even though the AC wasn't working properly (they had free standing mobile AC units) the quality of the food more than made up for it

Had dinner and enjoyed the pasta, the amazing service and had a great experience. The prices are 16-35$ for fresh pasta. Loved it!

Ordered their spaghetti and the sauce was about as good as a can of spaghetti-o's, also ordered their 5 Oz filet, steak was decent, mashed potatoes were bland and I've never gotten just 1 piece of each vegetable in a medley (got 1 small carrot, 1 piece of broccoli and one asparagus head)

Have been coming here for a very long time, always excellent. As soon as we walked in we noticed the difference. Basically Asian staff and Asian clientele, with mostly Asians in the kitchen. Not that there is anything wrong with that, and the service was very attentive and friendly. However, the food, and lets face it, that is what we... More

We had a lovely dinner here. The taster menu was perfect. You get an appetizer, salad, diner and dessert. Wonderful! My husband for the 5 mushroom risotto. The presentation table side is great. They finish it in a large bowl of parmesan cheese. Tasted great!

Food was decent. Sat in a small corner after placing a reservation. Food was pricey but decent. Spaghetti was alright, lasagna was pretty good. The bread was good. We ordered bruchetta and it was pricey but tasty. Overpriced
