Located on Walnut Street, this hidden gem is a local favorite restaurant. I have eaten different entrees here and have never been disappointed. Service is always good, too.

We stopped in from out of town and loved the food. The chicken scallopini was delicious! I have never ordered it before and I was pleasantly surprised. Honestly I would have licked the plate clean the sauce was so good! We also had chicken parm. The sides of spaghetti were good as well. The Cesar salads were good, the dressing needed some pizazz though. The bread was hot out of the warmer. The only negatives was the terrible seating we had. We were placed next to the kitchen entrance which was loud and very high traffic. The waitress seemed a bit aloof as well. Overall I would recommend this restaurant. Call ahead though to get better seating.

We visited Harrisburg for a weekend and chose this place based on its TA rating. Wow, what an overrated place! The tables are crowded together - don't say anything you don't want the person next to you hearing. The manicotti was tasteless. The salad and bread were average. The waitress was not attentive. My only guess is that the locals have a very poor choice of restaurants in their city.

We were staying overnight in Harrisburg and were looking for a non chain restaurant. Saw the good reviews on Tripadvisor and gave it a try. So glad we went a little out of our way instead of going to Macaroni Grill which was closer to our hotel. This place is family owned and everything was cooked to perfection. Wonderful homemade bread hot from oven,the best veal scallopini and chicken Marsala , great cocktails and service. Will definitely make this a regular stop on our way home each spring.
