“Good food and service but flies!”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

Very nice restaurant in charming downtown Frankfort. We went on a warm summer evening and decided to sit inside even though they have a nice outside patio and sidewalk seating. Unfortunately, we and other diners inside were plagued by multiple pesky flies. Very good service by our waiter and multiple bus people. Food was tasty. I had spaghetti with shrimp and scallops, my wife had a special, large noodles with cheesy red meat sauce. Hers was a little rich for her taste. The asparagus, tomato and blue cheese salad was very good. Entree portions were very large. When we visit again, we will definitely split an entree.

“Frustrating”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

We went here the last 2 Sundays because there is an outdoor concert across the street from the restaurant. Both times they did not have enough servers. It seemed forever before our order was taken and there were long lulls between the waitor's appearance. We had to ask for water twice. What's frustrating is that the food is really good. So, if you are patient and in no hurray, you'll like it.

“Great Authentic Italian Food”
Reviewed June 12, 2012

The calamari was the best, lightly breaded, excellent taste. I had the shrimp and scallop linguine, It was very tasty and a decent sized portion. They also have above average salads, there house dressing was very good. They also have fantastic creme brulee. Was not a very big fan of the mussels but others love them. Love the location, nice area. Would go back for a romantic dinner.

“Excellent local fancy Italian”
Reviewed May 27, 2012 via mobile

We always enjoy the food here, and this time went specifically to obtain a gift certificate to give as a wedding present. Nothing unites a couple like great Italian food!
