“Interesting and Exciting food to try!”
Reviewed March 19, 2014 via mobile

This was exactly what we were looking for- an Italian restaurant in Buffalo that offered something different than your average spaghetti and meatballs. There were a variety of menu options ranging from homemade ravioli a and lasagnas to sausage pasta. I tried the chicken lasagna and it was delectable. Craving it right now.
I recommend this to anyone looking for a new Italian place to try in buffalo. A little bit pricey but great service and portions, as well as wine pairings!
Don't forget dessert!

“Nice place to grab a bite or a drink near the buffalo convention center.”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

Dinner portions were a bit small for the price but tasty. Everything is al carte. If getting a sandwich, careful with the pickle - super hot. We advised the staff they should put a warning label on it. Service was excellent and owner was friendly and visiting all tables.

“My new favorite!!”
Reviewed March 9, 2014 via mobile

This is my new favorite!! Outstanding in every way. We started with the House Burrata (homemade mozzarella with ricotta cheese inside, tomatoes and bread!) which was one of the best things I've ever eaten. Then we ate the arugula salad (with pomegranate, pears and yummy pancetta pieces). Outstanding! From there we ordered the osso buco, monk fish and scallops. All specials - all great, but the osso buco stood out. From their we moved on to dessert. We had the zeppolis and tiramisu. Yum! They offer a $5 dessert tasting dish as well. The service - above and beyond. Nick makes everyone feel special. It reminded me of the service you get when eating in Italy....they are happy that you are there.

“Amazing food, great service”
Reviewed March 7, 2014 via mobile

This was my 1st time here & I will def be back. We had reservations but they were running behind so the manager gave the 3 of us a free glass of wine while we waited & a free app when we got to the table. He was so nice about everything & truly seemed to care. The food was amazing - had the side dish of spaghetti which was a meal itself & flatbread pizza. Both were sooooooo good. We had a great time. I highly recommend this place. It was great. Not too pricey with amazing food & service.
