Our first time in the area...we love Italian food found this hidden gem on trip advisor & so happy we did...the food was amazing & the service was excellent!

If you want real world Italian in a bustling atmosphere then this is the place. The food is divine and the cannoli was so good I cried.

What really amazes me is that I don't dine here more often. I live out of state and every few years or so we coordinate a meal here. So the 2016 experience was everybit as good as in years passed. First the food is excellent. Without going into detail, all the food ordered at our table was Italian in theme... More

I had the best veal parmigan! The portions are enormous, you could very easily share an entree. My husband had the linguine and clams and he loved it. While you are waiting to be served, you can go downstairs and visit the bar with their free Italian hors de overves.

I rated very good only because the waitress wasn't the best. Perhaps an off night for her, but food was excellent and desserts were great.

Great atmosphere, great food, great service and great location! Loved the "downstairs" area..great ambiance and very relaxing! We came here looking for a great meal and we were not disappointed. After a day at Cedar Point with 4 hungry adolescent boys, this was the perfect spot. Italian cuisine is our family favorite and my boys have high standards....we were thrilled... More
