Description: Cozy and quaint setting that will bring you back to Italia! A true trattoria one would find roadside in Tuscany. Our cuisine is traditional authentic Italian. With many classical dishes including homemade lasagne, our classic ricotta & spinach ravioli and gnocchi made in house daily. Bread fresh from the oven every morning compliments our garlicky Sicilian tomato pesto dipping sauce. A rock star wine list with more than 100 bottles offered at every price point and more than 20 wines by the glass to choose from. Daily specials are more contemporary Italian with a range of game meats including rabbit, venison, quail and bison using produce and recipes of the season. Gluten-free & whole grain pastas are available as well as a wide variety of vegetarian items to choose from. We pride ourselves on excellent customer service and high quality products for an enchanting experience for all of our guests. Raise your glass and fill your soul with heart and goodness ~ cheers!

“Lunch with son and wife”
Reviewed July 9, 2014 via mobile

Had lunch with my son and wife. Greeted by waiter, warm greeting. Ordered drinks and lunch. Waiter recommended a Italian wine for my wife, let her taste it first - she didn't like it and ordered a California Pinot Noir instead. Food was great - my wife and son really enjoyed the desserts. Great food and service. We will be back. Try it.

“too much noise”
Reviewed June 24, 2014

The service was good but the food mediocre. The tables for a couple are very crowded and with the noise almost impossible to talk with your date. This was recommended as a romantic restaurant. It could not have been less.

“Authentic!”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Feels and tastes like you are in Italy. The ambiance is just like a small cafe in Italy. Outdoor seating - be sure to make a reservation as it is quite popular. Food is fresh and fantastic.
