Food was outstanding as was the wait staff. Fun sitting at a table near the sidewalk for people watching & summer weather. Scallops, fried Brussels sprouts were generous & best I’ve eaten, coast to coast.

We’ve been looking for a great Italian restaurant in Livingston county for over 15 years, and we finally found it!

Definitely NOT your standard spaghetti and pizza place! Come with friends and try several of the small plates you can share. The appetizers are excellent (zucchini, meatballs). The pasta is homemade ON SITE, and is excellent. I tried the lemon pasta with capers and it...More

We ate here for dinner on a Monday, with reservations for 5:30. We were promptly greeted and seated, and our waitress was Brittany. The overall décor is average, it's on the dim side and slightly loud, but nothing terrible at all. We placed our order,...More
