“Very enjoyable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

As has been mentioned in other reviews, the furnishings are sparse and food is brought at such a pace as to have you in and out sooner than at other restaurants of high caliber. Having said that, the food was very nice and the service was attentive and friendly. We had risotto, mussels and ravioli. We would definitely go back if we are back in Rockville.

“Look inside, not outside”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012

Food is terrific. Service is very good. My only complaint is that you often get rushed through your meal. You have to affirmatively tell them to pace the way you like. Outstanding Italian fare, solid wine list. Not for anyone on a diet...

“Very good food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

My husband and I went here for dinner one night on a Saturday- around 6 pm. The place was crowded- always a good sign. We had the crostini as an appetizer, and I had the sauteed swordfish for my meal while my husband ordered the homemade rigatoni with sausage mushrooms... all very delicious! I didn't remember what swordfish tasted like, but this seemed like it was cooked to perfection, and the buttery sauce was not too heavy. The rigatoni was amazing! When we return, I think I may order that.

My only complaint for this restaurant was that is was very tight... when walking to our table we had to maneuver around people's chairs, and take turns with the wait staff to get around. The tables are so close together you unintentionally listen in on your neighbor's conversations... especially if they talk loud!

“A bit of Italy in Rockville”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2012

This restaurant priovides great Italian food and service and is best when they stay with
traditional Italian dishes and not the fusion creations. This is a special occasion establishement with prices to match. Do not expect any leftovers to go . Portions always on the small side, have gotten smaller lately. the owners are doing their part in fighting obesity in America. Beer and wine only. this establishement does not have a full liquor license.
