We had a delightful Easter dinner. We started our meal with the Antipasto Misto, which is enough for two people. A nice selection of meat, cheese, roasted red peppers, artichokes and kalamata olives. We order the Rigatoni alla Bolognese and the Stuffed Pork. We told our waiter we would like to "share" the two dishes, so he brought us two extra plates for the entrees. Both entrees were excellent. Ended our meal with the Tiramisu. It was light and a good ending to dinner. We did enjoy a bottle of wine--they have a good selection. They take reservations which is a plus. We will definitely return.

Stopped for supper and was pleasantly pleased. Four in the group each ordering different plates. Ratings for each dish ran from very good to a tad above average. The serves was polite, timely and helpful. Time between orders and eating was quite reasonable. A possible warning, the bill was divided according to couples, one paying in cash the other with credit card. I was the credit card user and before the day was over I discovered I had been charged for all four meals. I called the restaurant immediately, within twenty minutes, and was told there had been an error and it had been corrected. The following day I contacted the card company and was told as of that point nothing was done but to wait a few more days. Let's hope this was innocent because this is a nice spot with good serves, and tasty food.

Awesome menu. great taste and value. elegant but not stuffy. I broke my oiwn rule and ate at the same restaurant twice during the same visit - no need to look further than this place while in the Phoenix/Chandler area.

The restaurant is small, but with a nice, quiet atmosphere. The service initially was quite slow despite the restaurant being less than 1/2 full, and it was a long time before our order was taken. However, our orders then appeared reasonably rapidly. The menu is quite extensive, and the food was very good.

Our hotel recommended this restaurant and it was VERY good. Being from Chicago, we wanted to catch the Blackhawks game and they very willingly put it on the TVs in the bar area for us. The establishment was very busy, but the staff was very friendly and our server was extremely attentive to our needs.
The food was tasty and I really enjoyed the Calamari app with the fresh arugula and their dressing... tender calamari, not chewy.
The bread was good, they also accommodated our special dish requests which were not on the menu - no problem - and they were soooo good. Prices were reasonable as well. Definitely a place to go back to.
