“Great service, great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2014

One of the best servers(Joey) we've had in some time. Pizza is fantastic as is the molten lava cake dessert. Atmosphere is interesting and location in downtown a little bit away from traffic of campus is refreshing.

“Classic college town Italian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014

Friendly efficiency in service; knowledge of menu and wine; excellent pasta dishes. And judging from how busy they were on a VERY cold January Monday, a LOT of locals agree with our assessment.

“The best Italian restaurant in Tuscaloosa by far!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

Noisy and cramped, this restaurant always reminds me of New York City. Do not come here if you want to talk, unless you come early or late when it's not crowded. The food is very good, though, and reasonably priced. Try the Pasta de Palma!

“Lasagna !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

There are so many great things on the menu but I just keep coming back to the lasagna. This is in an old drug store downtown that has so much rich history and atmosphere. There's lots of great selections and really great prices. It's honestly my favorite restaurant in town.
