The balsamic dressing was like pure vineger. The crab was full of shell. The steak was cooked fine, but lacked flavor. The pasta sauce was more like a soup and taste like ragu. We were the only people in the place, and my drink was empty for a while. This place looks nice, but the food is just bad. I don't complain about many places, but this place was a rip off.

This is very easily the best restaurant in Selinsgrove. it is in an old bank and the vault it used for the bar area very cool! The Italian food is outstanding, we have had seafood on several occasions which is also very good. It is a bit pricy but worth it. Nice place for a special evenings.

Stopped in for a late lunch around 3pm. Said they were not open for lunch but welcomed us for an early dinner. (they open at 4pm). Ended up having a wonderful dinner. Wide range of dishes with a focus on Italian. Table clothes and covered seats add to an elegant atmosphere, but pricing is fair and the food was excellent. I live 40 miles away and it will be worth the drive, again and again.

Offered rice pasta for GF option. Great! Then they bring it out with breaded eggplant mixed in. Fail. Returned for seafood meal. Cracked tooth on shell in the plate of pasta. Sauces are thin but veggies are well prepared. Slow service even on week nights.Beauty is skin deep here.

This is an old bank, now an italian restaurant. The food was excellent, service was fast and very friendly, and the price very reasonable. Entree with salad and two rounds of drinks from the bar, cost just over $30 per person. (Although the service was very good, the frenetic way they and the very hard working manager did have a bit of an unwelcome effect on us. By no means enough so to seriously harm our experience, but they should really try to slow down just a touch, so that they don't all look like they are running from a fire. The trick is to provide their very good service without making the customers see their sweat!)
