Excellent food in an old world Italy setting. They are romantic and aim to please. Had a wedding buffet, food was hot and well presented. Servers were very professional and attentive. Highly recommend early dining.

Great selection of Italian food and dessert is included! Wonderful meal and choices. Excellent service and plenty of space for a weekend dinner nite out on the town. This restaurant has a great history in this location and is always a stable choice for out of town guests or a quiet evening out on the town in Independence, MO.

This is a great place for an anniversary or other special occasion. The food is outstanding and the setting is very intimate. The plaques on the walls about the couples that were engaged is very endearing.

Seafood Pasta was amazing as most everything is especially the Rum Cake! But unfortunately the last few times we have visited the service/server has been mediocre at best. A full 15 mins before anyone even acknowledged we were seated and then another 15 mins to order an appetizer....no apology for the wait just an attitude that we were lucky to be served at all....very exasperated when I asked to have dining points credited to my reward card and then when I asked for a receipt that really sent her over the edge. They were very busy as they are very proficient in using Social Media and e-mail and text to send out specials and BOGO's and coupons but I dont think they have the service/servers trained well enough or have enough of them so that customer service is so poor. Again though the food is EXCELLENT!

Don't miss this hidden gem for Sunday brunch. For a great price you will be treated to great food from breakfast food to lunch food. Mimosa's go with your brunch and the endless food never runs out. Pasta fixed to order just adds a wonderful touch to this already great brunch.
Even if you have to drive a few extra miles or minutes this is worth every minute or mile.
