“Wasted 1 1/2 hour of my life”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

Never did get to try dinner, waited for over an hour and still no dinner. We finally got up and left and of course as we were walking out then dinner came, we told them to keep it. We did have a bottle of wine and calamari appetizer which was terrible, cut will big and very chewy, could not eat it. You would have thought they would have comped us our calamari for waiting for so long but NO. All they said was sorry please try us again. If the waiter would have come by and just said something to us we would have been so up set.
My birthday dinner ended up being at Jack in the Box.

“Delightful dining”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

This small European style restaurant was delightful. Good food and excellent service. They were attentive but did not rush you. Tucked away in a shopping center once inside you will forget where you are. Relax and enjoy a delightful dinner.

“Good Italian, quaint restaurant”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

I recently had dinner at Little Italy--the first time in a couple of years. The food was excellent. Crisp salad, yummy gnocchi, braised short ribs that melted in your mouth. It is an unassuming little place in a strip mall, but the chef is excellent. Nice wine selection and a full bar.

“Over-priced mediocre food”
Reviewed May 26, 2012

You can't get out of this place for less than $100 bucks if you have a full meal. At that price I expect perfection, and the food is FAR from that. The quality was closer to a frozen dinner than fine dining. Needless to say, I'll never be back.
