Order the pasta!!! Their pizzas are delicious, the anti-pasta is great but the pasta is hands-down the best. They start your meal with yummy bread with oil. Wine list is large and atmosphere is romantic but also a nice place to gather with friends!

The food is wonderful and the atmosphere is amazing. Great little restaurant but not if you are looking for an inexpensive meal. I would highly recommend them, just make sure you don't get sticker shock if you're on a budget.
