We really liked the atmosphere in this place - cozy lighting, brick walls, big bar up front, quasi-industrial kind of look. Service was friendly and attentive. You get a decent portion of food, meaning you can eat all of it, unlike some of the chain Italian places that give you gargantuan size meals. I had the baked penne and my... More

The prices were very reasonable and the food so yummy. We all got pasta, and all our dishes were great. Friendly service, too. Great little casual spot.

My daughter and I enjoyed a great pasta dinner here - she had tortellini with a creamy pesto sauce and I had wild mushroom ravioli in alfredo sauce. Yum! They were very busy so service was slow, but we weren't in a hurry so no problem.

In an area of fine restaurants, this still remains a placde to go to if you want to have good eats, get out in under 30 minutes and for less than $25.

chicken Parmesan was tough, had been cooked quite some time or leftover ? bland almost a card board consistency, no flavor even cut hard with knife. Wife;s spaghetti on the bland side ? bread with meal? half of a half of a half of a roll ? burnt on one corner.

The wife had hers al dente according to her wishes. I had the chicken fettucini alfredo, and it was equally fine.

Should have checked reviews before sitting down. The Caesar salad was adequate, but the blt was very sad. I've had much better in a college cafeteria in the 80's...you know what I am talking about if you are 40-50. Only a couple beer on tap, just keep walking by unless you are desperate.

Visited here for dinner. The wine menu was the first of the least common denominator followed by the pizza which right there in the same ballpark. The only redeeming factor was it was within walking distance from the hotel. I'm sure I can do better and so can you. Don't bother.
