My daughter took me here for lunch. I didn't expect such a nice place hidden in the shopping center. She had a huge and very delicious chicken salad. Due to a dietary infirmity which limits what I can eat, I couldn't find anything appropriate, but the waiter had the kitchen make me a special soup which was just perfect. I... More

Went on a weeknight for a late happy hour, early dinner to this place near our house. We decided to have appetizers and a couple of drinks. We had the fried calamari, the crab cake sliders, and the filet bruschetta. We both loved the calamari and the crab cake sliders. Not fans at f the filet bruschetta. Will definitely be... More

Recommended restaurant for a visit to the area. Waiter was fair at best and not very personable. We were there for an anniversary dinner and said we were in no rush, and weren't preventing others from getting the table since there was no wait for a table, but the waiter kept rushing the evening. Too bad, we tip well if... More

I'm sorry to write this, but our last visit was a bust. We've always been satisfied with the food and service here, so we were confident bringing our neighbors to enjoy a restaurant that was new to them. First, my friend eagerly reached for a delicious smelling piece of bread, but she noticed a hair inside the basket. Unappetizing and... More

Great service, food was served extremely warm, every thing we ordered was delicious. We had the chicken parmigiana, rib eye, filet mignon, seared scallops. Salads were good too , we had Caesar and wedge salad and calamari for Appetizer. Dessert was a showstopper cheesecake and a chocolate soufflé . The soufflé tasted like the best volcano cake ever, cheesecake /chocolate... More

This is a great local's place for the Bressi Ranch crowd - everyone knows everyone in this place. Fun bar and nice causal setting inside or out. Open aire kitchen so the delicious flavor of the meals being cooked make your appetite grow. Good selection of wines by the glass and bottle but expect to pay a high price either... More

A really nice place. Great Italian served by real Italians. Ours was from the Bronx and I swear he must have been related to Rodney Dangerfield. Some great jokes. We went during happy hour. Drinks were perfect. We had a Ceasar Salad and a great pizza. Bar scene was really cool and we could tell this was a place locals... More

Went here for a business dinner. Great food! The waiter barely spoke English which helped make it more authentic but also made it very hard to understand what they recommended etc.... They had an amazing ribeye! Great wine as well!

This restaurant has some outstanding takes on classic Italian food. I had the rustic penne this last visit and it was fantastic - just the right combination of goat's cheese and herbs to go along with sun-dried tomato slivers added to the tasty pasta. One friend got the mussels dish and was very pleased. The place is always lively on... More
