While I used to be a semi regular, I hadn't been there in years. It is my favorite italian restaurant in the charlotte area and I know italian food. The pastas and sauces are freshly made and cooked to perfection. My wife and I just went back in the last few days. I was thoroughly impressed with the wait staff, the meal and the entire experience. The only modest complaint is that the place is located in a strip mall with an univiting appearance. Otherwise... I love it.
