We had the fig and goat cheese appetizer, the frito miso (included calamari), the lasagne and the veal piccata. The frito miso had only 3 small pieces of calamari ... Was mostly fried jalapeño peppers. The lasagne was barely warm. It had been made ahead and then reheated. The service was excellent. we took in our own wine and the corking fee was only $10, so that was a plus. The bill was $65 plus tip. We will not go back to this restaurant.

Anthony, the owner, has brought great Italian food to Asheville.
Great selection of wines and terrific service. Located downtown so you can walk to the theater and shopping. A fun night out.

Very nice little Italian place with great food, cold drinks and great service. Make reservations to make sure you can get in. Lasagna was amazing and the service and attention was wonderful

The service was great, food was very good. The portion sizes were huge. If you're in the mood for Italian food it's good but I wouldn't say it's a must go to restaurant.

Decided to forego the bigger Vicenzos for this little restaurant on Biltmore Ave. It was certainly the right choice. Wait staff were like family immediately! Had a delicious martini for my husband in record time, and waited patiently for me to decide on a wine (it was worth the wait). This is not a huge restaurant; has a long bar, sells some pastries and bread, seats maybe 80 (in the front); just our type of place. Get their caesar salad (it's chargrilled romaine with home made dressing and anchovies) and share it. Steaks are perfectly seared and dressed; mashed potatoes with the skins on - perfectly squished.
This restaurant is not cheap, but who cares when you get treated so well, and have such wonderful food? Our favorite meal of the four day trip.
