“Great Food & Atmosphere”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

This is one of my favorite Italian restaurants in the area. The food is always great, and the service is wonderful! Little by little, I will eventually order everything off the menu, as I've never made a bad choice, I don't think one can! Music is just another wonderful quality that they provide on the last Thursday of the month. Always a blast with Chris Coogan and some of the locals that join in. Highly recommended.

“STAY, DON'T GO”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Stopped in to get a to-go meal for 4. Caesar salad was great, highly recommend. Tri-colore, not so much, house salad adequate. Problem was with the hot food items: pasta was overcooked, chicken rubbery and soggy crusted, a sauce with cheese gluey...all problems that don't appear when dining at the restaurant. So my advice, eat in or don't bother.

“A definite favorite”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

An excellent restaurant to make you feel you are in Italy and enjoying a wonderful dinner.
Reasonable prices and good food, what more can you ask for.

“The food, the wine, the service, the noise all top level”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

What a great place to meet friends for dinner. Unfortunately they are all there and there is no noise muffling, so it's like conversing in a train station. Still the food was fantastic, the wine selection good, but not great, and the service was excellent. I won't recommend any specific menu item because everything my friends and I had was delicious. Remember to make reservations.
