“Delighful surprise!”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Found this new restaurant on the web when searching for an Italian restaurant close to home for dinner This new addition to the Shire center in Richardson was a wonderful surprise! The owners were a delight and we found they were from NJ and shared knowledge of areas and food in NJ. The pizza was great and a REAL antipasta hit the spot. Good selection of wine. The menu is NOT overwhelming in length! (it seems if you don't have 100 items on the menu it's not Italian!) Anxious to try happy hour and the Friday night Sinatra music during dinner Hope people appreciate the authentic food served here. Will derfinately be back.

“Great Owner - Food Not So Great”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Met the Owners and they were very nice. They seemed to really care of the customers. As for the food, it was average at best. My husband and I had the spaghetti and meatballs (which is their signature dish) and a pizza. The meatballs were mushy and had no flavor. The pizza had potential, pretty good flavor but the crust needed to be cooked more.

“All over the map”
Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

Stopped in to try this Italian eatery located in the space vacated by Scalini's. Our experience was strange, but I would definitely give them another chance.
Our pizzas were outstanding as was the wine. However, the wait was interminable, and we were concerned that we would never get any food due to the 45minute long server meeting taking place.
Observing the bartender pouring the glasses of wine was exasperating since there were no other customers at the time--and he managed to take a good 10 minutes to perform this task. There were a number of the owner's relatives milling about, and a couple of them came over to introduce themselves, but strangely, seemed oblivious to the fact that we had no food!
I hope they succeed here, but the service is the weak link.
