This quaint restaurant is in the heart of old city on market street. Pleasant wait staff. Food was great, our waitress had the specials down without reading them and she was upbeat and personable. From the entrance it doesnt look like they have much seating, and its a tight squeeze if there is a group of people there, you have to literally squeeze between the tables to get to additional seating in the back. The restaurant is small, old and rustic, love it. Its the food, wait staff, cook staff and the delicious food that makes this a 4/5. It is a BYOB so we brought a nice bottle of white wine and enjoyed it. The price is no different than any other sit down italian restaurant out there. At the end, our waitress gave us a business card/coupon to use on next visit. Good Business!

Good food with good prices. A BYOB but if you forget, they will give you wine or sangria. Their specials are always good. The pheasant ragu was superb. Reasonly priced with good service.

We had a reservation and were seated promptly. Service was good--attentive but not intruding. The food was great: each pasta dish was as good as at any first-rate Italian restaurant; soup or salad came with each dish. BYOB was a bonus. No problem using a Groupon.

My sisters and I had dinner here during Marathon weekend. They had a pre fixe menu--lots of great pasta options with soup/salad included and complimentary sangria. We had a reservation but had a to wait a few minutes for a table to clear, but we were promptly seated after that. Waitresses were very attentive and the owners made themselves accessible and even served us our food. The portions were generous, and the food was great. Sangria was okay--I saw a box of Franzia so I assume they made it with that. Can't complain about free drinks! Would definitely recommend this restaurant! FYI it's small so be ready to wait for a table during peak hours.

This restaurant was a gem of a find! The food was marvelously prepared, and the BYOB aspect kept the Italian tradition alive
