“Good Italian Food”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

The restaurant is centrally located in Waynesville with easy parking. There is dining on the main level and on the balcony. The food was delicious and plentiful. The service was great and helpful - answering our "tourist" questions.

“Good Selection”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

They have a very good selection of pastas and traditional Italian food. The sauces they have are very good. The pizza and stromboli are very good. The wait staff is very friendly and helpful. Don't let the outside scare you away it is very large inside with upstairs and downstairs seating. The garlic knots are very good.

“GREAT Italian Food”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

The Food was GREAT. Our family was there last weekend for dinner, after our daughter graduated from Western Carolina. Reservation was a life saver. There was a line out the door,. probably 50-65 people and atleast an hour wait, if we didn't have a reservation, because there were so many large, 12 plus people, groups.

Despite factors working against the staff, from Graduation weekend, Mother's day weekend a kitchen on the second floor, and dishes washed on the 1st floor, we had a very good experience.

Suggestions for Owners
For the owners of the restaurant, I suggest they either get a kitchen on the 1st floor or atleast a small elevator, so staff don't have to run up and down the stairs all the time to get food and shuttle clean dishes(washed on 1st floor) back up stairs.

Suggestions for customers
Plan ahead and make a reservation, because this restaurant is only going to get busier as more people find out about it, like we did from another Western Carolina graduate.

GREAT FOOD AND EXPERIENCE, especially considering the weekend.

“Pouring outside, inside warm and friendly”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

Special treatment, asked if we wanted to sit upstairs or downstairs, and great advice on what to order. Food delicious and knots that come instead of bread are delicious.

“Great place for dinner”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

The food was delicious and portions were great. The prices weren't bad either. I recommend the bread knots with your meal.
