“Great in all respects.”
Reviewed June 11, 2009

Good wine choices, excellent Italian food. Vegetarian friendly. Service well above average! This is real Italian, not "tourist" food. Dressy casual (not jeans and flip-flops). Romantic.

“Don't get the fish”
Reviewed May 24, 2009

Well, we drove by and smelled lotsa garlic! So we drove in. Well the service was mediocore at best. Not very attentive. I could have cooked a better salmon. The rice was undercooked (I spit it out) and the brocolli was bland. It was like they forgot to season it. However, my wife did have a delicious penne and beet salad. Stick to their non fish pastas and you'll be happy. Nice portions. Bread was terrible.

I had an amazing dining experience here. My waiter was exceptional as was my meal - parpadelle with lobster in a saffron sauce.
