After driving 200 miles we decided this was the place to eat. Apparently they would only take us if we had a reservation. It sounds like this restaurant will be closing. If you don't have a reservation, then don't bother.

I took my wife and mother in law for dinner. They are closing for good 8/14. Food was good as always. Veal scallopini was great, lasagna was great and my tortellini was great. Sorry to see the place close. Hurry in before they close.

Beyond a doubt, the best Italian restaurant in Bloomington. This little neighborhood restaurant has been around a long time and is truly a local favorite. It's off the beaten path but the eggplant parmesan is the best I've ever had anywhere. My husband's favorite is...More
