I expected this restaurant to be expensive because it is in Birmingham, but was pleasantly surprised. It was fairly priced, the portions were generous and the food was excellent. We were in a rush for the theatre and our waitress made sure we got out on time. The acoustics are not so good and it gets really loud. It is... More

Had their tuna and shell salad which also had mozzarella as well as tomatoes with a light dressing. There were a few too many shells for me but the server suggested requesting extra lettuce which would have made it perfect. I think I would also use fresh mozzarella and cherry tomatoes as well. My friend had the eggplant Parmesan which... More

This was our first venture out to this Italian Restaurant. Being it was Friday night they were packed. Surprisingly for such a small place we only had to wait about 20 minutes for a table. Being the place is small and it was a busy Friday night it was very noisy but no points off for that, it's expected from... More

Lunch here is a great deal. Choice of pasta, choice of sauce plus a salad and bread for only 9.95 ! Great old Italian decor too.

Have been a customer over the years. Some menu items have been familiar favorites for years. Met friends for dinner. We all ordered pasta with different sauces and sausage. The sausage was WAY overcooked. Mentioning it to the waitress was worthless. She said " I'll mention it to the kitchen." Not the response we expected. Moderate prices, nice selections. Bring...

This filled the bill for a weeknight dinner out when our kitchen was out of commission. Pleasant evening out on their deck. Food is fairly standard Italian - American that is well prepared but not the sort of thing that foodies would rave about. Wine list is limited but fairly priced. No bar. Service was just right, attentive and courteous.... More

I am not sure why our experience was so much better, but my co-workers and I very much enjoyed this restaurant. I had the Fileto Diana, and it was wonderful. The meat was tender and savory, and the mashed potatoes were excellent. The tomato basil soup was also very good. My 3 co-workers enjoyed their dinners as well.

I read the other reviews too late. Obviously, the owner hasn't read them at all. I'm not a foodie or a big critic of anything but this place didn't make par. The place was very noisy. The tabletops were sticky. Booth paint was worn. But the worst thing I can say about a restaurant applies here; the food was bland.... More

I was expecting a nice Italian lunch on Sunday, but what I experienced was huge family dining with lots of screaming kids. I don't like unruly kids at restaurants and it was really hard to enjoy my meal and wine with kids screaming for an hour. I ordered pasta and spinach salad which were both good. The Italian steak my... More

Yesterday's chicken re-heated. Balsamic dressing with vinegar NO OIL on my daughter's salad. Stale croutons and bottled Caesar dressing in what is suppose to be authentic Italian food and the absolute WORST was DEEP FRIED Italian sausage that had the consistency of beef jerky!!
