Italian food in small bistro type restaurant. The food and service were excellent. Would wat here again. Moderately priced. There were traditional Italuan restaurant dishes and some you just don't find everywhere. Worth going!

The meatballs and marinara sauce were homemade. The ministrone was some of the best I've had and their selection of Boarshead meat/cheeses were great. It was a little pri key for lunch ($31.50 with tip for two) but worth it. The staff were super friendly.

This is the worst Italian restaurant I have ever been to. The lasagna tasted like hamburger helper. As did another dish that my friend ordered. Nothing about it tasted like Italian food. They must have left out the Italian seasonings. Yuck.

First of all, the service wasn't so great. We weren't alerted about their daily specials, which had more options than their menu. We ordered ravioli with tomato sauce and grilled chicken with white rice and vegetables. Their salad and bread was good and fresh. The...More
