This place looks and feels a lot like a European Mediterranean restaurant. This time we visited there was an option to eat al fresco in the recently completed garden. Set beneath a pergola with outdoor lights suspended from it and nice planting, it was a very pleasant experience. The food is very good but falls short of authentic Italian. For example, the bread is good but served with butter rather than olive oil/balsamic and olives. And the service (which I've commented on approx a year ago) is too rushed. Please take a cue from Italy where people sit and converse with coffee after their meal! This is not the first time the check arrived before we had a coffee (we had a table at 6.30pm and the place was quiet so no reason for this). Getting these small elements right would really make it so much more relaxed and 'Italian'.

I was a guest and was told if I liked Italian food, I would really like Parisi's. He was right and I have to say it was the best Italian food I have eaten since my neighbors moved away - they were from Naples. Great food, pleasant atmosphere, and excellent service - you could not ask for more.

Great authentic homemade Italian food. The homemade marinara is wonderful. They also offer gluten free pasta and most of their sauces are gluten free.

My husband and two teenage sons ate here last night. One son really enjoyed the lasagna. Husband and other son had a shrimp tortellini they liked a lot-- thought portions could have been a little larger, but tasty. I had spinach artichoke pappardelle that was awesome. Great, friendly service also.
