Favorite Raleigh spot for authentic Italian food! Always greeted warmly and provided attentive service. Consistently excellent food with great wine selection and daily specials. Make reservations, this place is almost always packed!

The food was expensive for what you get. My wife had Rigatoni veal Bolognese which was not very good. I had the special lobster ravioli which consisted of four ravioli. This left me wondering where to find something to eat.
