We had a wonderful time here for my brother in laws birthday- we were a party of 6. The waiter had character and reminded us of an Italian uncle- just the right fun spirit for the Italian atmosphere and food. Very good service. Courses were delicious- the shrimp pasta with a light creamy curry sauce was great- other dishes ordered were the sole and spinach, Pasta putanesca, pork chop, - all were great. The beet salad was excellent. And a great selection of Italian reds. We had appetizers, two bottles of wine, salads and entrees, and desserts- came to $100 per couple- not bad for a fancy night out!

What more can you ask for good food, good prices and great service. Tony is the man. For small groupa or private dinners.. Was just there for a Holiday party and it was great.

A wonderful, if not cramped Italian restaurant with character, great food and impeccable service. Located off the main road, don't let the unpretentious outside fool you. Top quality food and service. One of our family favorites

Went there following a so-so dining experience at Vino in Lafayette. Stopped in for a glass of wine before a concert. Must come back for the food! Met the owner and a very capable wait staff. Wew will be back!

First comes the freshly hot focaccia, with a dish of olive oil and yummy spices. Then comes Tony (waiter extraordinaire), to reel off the specials, with all the details.

I especially enjoy the sole, the lamb shank, and the gnocchi. Great salads, too.

Pleasant Italian music, not loud.

After your delicious dinner, you are served gratis a demiglass of Madeira, with a biscotti to dip in it and soak it up.
