“Half priced Appetizers on Sunday!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

Was in the neighborhood and decided to give this place a try. The appetizers were half priced and they were great. Complimentary warm bread, so good! Creamy pesto pasta was ok, thats why I gave this restaurant 4 stars only. Service was 5 stars!!

“"Italian Restaurant" pre-Billy Joel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2014

Our group of 8 thoroughly enjoyed our Sunday Italian meal (and a bottle of white) before heading downtown to the Billy Joel concert. It was a first visit for most of us, and we all agreed we will return! The waiter was excellent- informative and attentive. I had the specials, but everyone else selected from the good number of menu choices, including plenty of options for our vegetarian. The special salad (spinach, strawberries & toasted nuts with a light vinaigrette) was a generous size and a great choice. The shrimp & my-choice-of-pasta special (see picture) was also delicious- a great sauce! They have a gluten-free option, but no whole wheat pasta. Bottles & glasses of wine were half-price on Sunday... lucky us! The restaurant is small, but our reserved table was immediately available when we arrived. There are a few tables on the front porch which should be delightful in nice weather. Parking (on the side and in back) is a fairly tight squeeze, and we had to back out onto Frankfort Avenue, but did so with no problems. There is also parking available on the street.

“Wonderful Family Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2013

This was a great small family restaurant. Food was terrific, wait staff attentive. This is the kind of cozy, warm goooooood food place you love to go to for a meal in a relaxed atmosphere. There are open only a few hours each night -- would love to go there on a weekend for lunch -- but worth the wait. We arrived shortly after they opened for a Sunday night and by the time we left, the place was filling up quickly. So make plans for an early dinner, then linger to savor the food and a good glass of wine.

“Classic Italian with Flair”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2013

This is one of my favorite Italian restaurants anywhere, with classic cuisine. Daily specialties are featured, often from private recipes, and the management/chef always seems pleased to provide my special requests if the ingredients are fresh and available to him. The menu includes a number of veal dishes and a wide wine selection/collection. If you're in the mood for a public restaurant with a "personal" feel, you must try this establishment. I'm sure that, like me, you'll become a regular guest! Five Stars in my book! Like other establishments along Frankfort Ave. it is located in a former home which adds to its comfy-family ambiance.

“Great neighborhood place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2013

This is a consistently good Italian restaurant. The chef is inventive along with the standards. It serves my favorite Piccata(veal or chicken) in Louisville. The service and food deserve 5 circles, but the ambiance keeps it from being a 5
