I only review according to my experience. First off the atmosphere is Italian. Service was quick and the waitress knowledgeable and Johnny on the spot. Lunch specials are great for the price and quality. Now there is only one issue I have and I have eaten there before. For me there is way too much sauce with the dishes. I... More

Had dinner with my family while visiting from TN, and totally enjoyed all that was offered. Atmosphere was authentic, service was spot on, and the quality of the food was excellent. Portions were huge and had enough to share and even take some home. Loved the open kitchen concept as well.

This place gives you Italian food in the way you would expect to see it in New York or New Jersey. They serve the pizza on an elevated tray that sits in the middle of the table. Pizza was fantastic, but beware - the "personal" pizza can easily serve two. We chose the next size up and my sister and... More

We had eaten at another one of these restaurants and it was excellent so we thought we would try this one. Lots of free parking in the lot. The restaurant was not overly busy so service was fairly quick. The atmosphere was quaint. Waitress was nice but too chatty you know the life story type. We asked if the mushrooms... More

We enjoyed a dinner of seafood ravioli with brandy cream sauce and gilled sole with a tomato/herb melange on top, vegetables and mashed potatoes both of which were superb. All wines by the glass were $6 the night we were there. We mentioned to our waitress that it was our first visit and the chef sent complimentary bruschetta to our... More

Love the food and the ambiance of this fine restaurant. Great for a business lunch or a family meal. Everything is properly prepared and properly served. My family has eaten here for years. Not just a pizza place. Try any of their chicken dishes.

We go here often and have never been disappointed. The antipasto appetizer is larger enough for a full mead. Sun dried tomato and bead is fabulous. Terrific pasta meals. AND GLUTEN free is available.
