“Shhh! Don't tell anyone. And don't go. You'll take my table;)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

You would drive by. Not fancy outside. No reservations accepted. Waits have been reasonable and made quick by conversation with bar tender.
The only place in the area that I would take my Italian brother-in-law. If you know him, you would understand, "nuff said".

“Italian Perfection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Do not pass this by. Located in a strange little strip of stores at the corner of 355 and Gude Dr. This place may looking uninviting but trust me you are missing out on one of the best authentic Italian meals in Rockville.
My company first took me here for a birthday lunch and I was not disappointed. The food was excellent and the service 1st class. Small bar area but quaint seating areas throughout. I have been back twice and intend on returning soon.

“Wonderfully Surprised”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

I am sometimes hesitatnt about restaurant recommendations from hotel staff, but this one was wonderful. The menu is definitely not the mainstream Italian you see at most chain Italiam restaurants. You could tell it was all prepared fresh. All of the staff were very friendly and you could tell by their interactions with other patrons that they have a lot of "regulars". My only complaint would be parking. The lot is very small due to the location. I will definitely go back when I am in town again.
