My mom and I were out for lunch and wanted great Italian food and we found it! We were the first people there for lunch and were promptly greeted with service. The people there were all so friendly and you could tell they really wanted you to enjoy your experience in the restaurant. I ordered a cheese, spinach, and mushroom... More

The new menu is delicious. I love the decor. The attention by the staff is unparalled. I always take out of town visitors there for a good meal.

A wonderful dining experience. When you're married to an Italian it's hard to find a good local Italian restaurant. We have definitely found one here. The food is wonderful. Don't be in a hurry , just sit back and enjoy some great Italian food. My wife Compares it to her grandmother's great Italian cooking. Enjoy!

Have visited various times over last 7 years. Best pizza I've had in TN. most authentic Italian dishes. Takes a little time as they make to order. Delicious. Highly recommend. Quiet, quaint.

Everything was good, soup, drinks, pasta, salad and pizza. Can't wait to go back and try other dishes. It is in a small space but there is a bar as well as tables. As far as it being romantic, that would depend on where you can sit.

Great, quiet atmosphere. This place is a hidden gem with great Italian food! Have tried several items and never disappointed! Warm bread is always a sign and the Italian Loaf served here is perfectly crispy on the outside; warm & soft on the inside. Full bar and good wine selection are a bonus. I always need a box!

At lunch with a friend, the food is spectacular with a lot of variety on the menu, all authentic Italian type cooking. The Italian salad dressing is incredible, homemade of course, served on a deluxe variety of crisp salad greens accompanied by the hot Italian style bread and butter. I like the veal or eggplant parm. the best but there... More

Although we typically go for business lunches, we've also been there for dinner on several occasions. The Italian food is excellent, and chef/owner Emile takes a personal interest in his guests. He has watched our girls grow from toddlers to today.

Lots of menu options, something for everyone! The sautéed calamari appetizer was a huge hit as were the other appetizers and entrees with our group of 9. Our local friend said it is always this good. Definitely give it a try.
