Great food: Manicotti, Minestrone soup, bread, and Buffalo Bill’s Ravioli. Our server Lisa was awesome! The only disappointment was I was an hour early for the lasagna. I’ll have to come back on a Wednesday night to try the lasagna. Must try for Italian food!

Ate here 9/27/17 on a cool rainy evening - perfect time for a pasta joint! Allie gave us fine service, as my lovely wife queried her on gluten-free options; she went with the GF Lorenzo, GF bread, GF caesar, and Chianti (two). It was lasagna...More

Went in to satisfy our Italian food craving and were pleasantly surprised how much we loved the food here. Great sauce and great meatballs (I can be very picky).

Excellent food. Great indoors/outdoors atmosphere. My daughter and I shared a Caesar salad (regular size), an order of garlic bread, and an entree (stuffed portobello mushroom). We both had a glass of red Sangria that was freshly made. Prices were very reasonable and food enjoyable.

I know they have a wonderful outdoor area to eat and there are Dogs every where. I do not think you would have a problem. The food is GREAT and so was the service!

We had a great meal but things go wrong in any restaurant. Some don't match our expectations for comping when this happens & I usually won't return.
