“Average food, banquet atmosphere, noisy!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2014 via mobile

Nothing horrible to say, but also nothing great to say either. Seemed over priced for very average italian food! I guess being in a small town, that may be as good as it gets.

“An evening of fine Italian food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014

We truly enjoyed our meal. Service was great even though the restaurant was very crowded on a Saturday evening. The bread and dipping sauce started off the meal just fine. Their house salad with blue cheese crumbles which is included with each meal was wonderful. Our party feasted on their homemade meat and cheese filled ravioli and Chilean seas bass with sides of pasta. No complaints by anyone! One change worth noting - no more BYOB. Their liquor license is now in place as of this past weekend (beginning of April). This restaurant has a lot more to offer than what meets the eye. (Located in a strip mall). You'll be pleasantly surprised by a fine meal. The noisy ambiance even reminded us of the atmosphere we experienced in Italy when we visited.

“Delicious food and great service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014 via mobile

Found this place on trip advisor and decided to give it a try. Went with several coworkers and we all agreed the food was terrific! It was a week night so the place wasn't really busy and we got a lot of attention from the server but never felt rushed. Will definitely return!

“Fine Italian Dining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014

When we first pulled up, it was oh no...the restaurant is in a small strip of shops and is not much to look at from the outside. However, we were glad we dined early at 5 because it was filled by the time we left. They do not yet have a liqour license, so that was a disappointment. Somehow I missed that on the other posts. It is pending so call ahead to find out. We had a very attentive waitress. There were the traditional meals--veal and eggplant but a few novel items too. Portions were huge, so unfortunately we did not have room for dessert. Nice warm fresh bread with a spicy tasty olive oil to dunk while we waited for our salads. You could come in jeans or dress up for a special romantic date.
