“Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2010

I have eaten great food all over the United States, and half way around the world. This is by far one of the greatest places I have had the pleasure to eat at. Yea, the wait is sometimes long, but the wines are great, and if you go with the right person, who cares as long as you are together. Kristen and her Dad have done Appleton proud. Thanks you two.

“Best Italian in the area.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2010

After 10 visits for lunch and dinner, I can say this is the best Italian north of Milwaukee. Fresh pastas and great paninis. My only complaint is that the one time I tried the tiramisu it was not up to par with the other offerings.

“Great food and even greater family that runs it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2010

This is an unexpected jem found in the heart of the mall area. The buzz is right on - this is the best find in Appleton. The food is a wonderful mix of authentic family recipes from Grama Carmella combined with new and fantastic creations of her son and granddaughters. You totally forget your are in a strip mall once you enter the doors. You go here for the food, but stay for the friends you make with the owners and staff. The wine menu is phenominal with great prices. Thank you for bringing a fun, vibrant place to get REAL authentic Italian food to the Appleton area!

“great restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2010

I tried this new restaurant when it opened. I was surprised to find out how good the food was. it was the best Italian food I have ever tasted. It was quite busy, but it was only there second day opened. I can't wait to go back again. if you want great Italian food, this is the place to be.
