“A really good italian restaurant.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

Food, attention and the atmosphere was great. One of the best Sangrias in the area. Server was extremely kind and patient with our kids, which is very nice to see in restaurants. Food was delicious, well cooked and and fresh. Portions are more than enough for a huge appetite and to share with your friends and family.

“Avoid at all costs...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

My wife loves italian food. I do too.

The food here was terrible. Horrible. INEDIBLE.

How in our Lord's holy Earth do you OVERCOOK pasta, asparagus etc. The simplest food to cook in the world. Is it mushy? Then it is overcooked.

The "waitress" (this term loosely applies to the wait staff) forgot about half of what we ordered. Never mentioned it at all.

How places like this endure a single day is beyond my comprehension.

In capitalism, we vote with our dollars... those of you still spending money here, please, stop... maybe we can get an actual decent restaurant here.

Avoid at all costs.

“Nice Italian food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2013

They have valet parking. The service was good and the food made me really happy. When you are expecting some flavors and you received just what you want. On top the desserts were very good, they tasted fresh. The atmosphere is not great, but is relax, so is good place for a nice conversation.

“Argentina and Italia in one place!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

A mix of Italian and Argentinian cousine. Excellent pasta and great beef. Order the "tablita" with a combination of chicken, chorizo, meat and beef. The Agnolottis de Carne y Setas (meat and mushroom with a capri o vodka sauce are amazing. Great sangría. Good prices and good for kids.
