It's not just the food, which is excellent, but also the service. The waiters will speak Italian to you. I had the rigatoni amatriciana and my friend had the rigatoni carbornara, both excellent.

we came here based on other reviews and it was very accurate. we sat at a table inside on a saturday night. we were greeted immediately and it seemed like it was family run. our waiter was very attentive. served us bread right away and it was very good. i ordered the lasagna which was good just a little salty. my husband ordered the spagetti and meat sauce and he enjoyed it. not very big portions but enough to satisfy you.

My favorite Italian restaurant in the whole wide world! The Polenta al Tartufo (Truffle Polenta) is a MUST! All the pasta dishes are delicious and texture of the pasta is perfect... Never found another restaurant with such outstanding pasta. The service is great and everyone is super friendly.
I recommend this restaurant 100% you'll come back guaranteed!

Doesn't look like much from the outside, but don't let that fool you. The food, the staff and most of the patrons were true Italian. Great service and food at reasonable prices. Glad it's within walking distance.

Great food, but a few basic sauces for everything. Food was tasty and plentiful. Good location by our hotel which is why we tried it.
