Had a wonderful Father's Day meal with two seafood dishes and bruschetta. Sauce on muscles is fantastic and portion was big. Good bottle of merlot followed by ice cream topped with candied pecans and caramel sauce. Great service.

Stopped in for a quick dinner. The food was average. The wine selection for pairing Italian food was disappointing. Wine was over priced.

Great food, great service, a bit expensive. This is a nice place to go for a special occasion. The a fettuccine Alfredo is delicious, the bread with olive oil is addicting, the caesar salad is fantastic.

Was in area for training and not knowing any local restaurants we stopped by a chain we know and like. The bartender went out of her way for everything. It was discount bottle night and she sold us on a nice Chianti.

The food here is always excellent. They have changed their menu and kept some of our favorites, and added some nice additions. Service is friendly, fast, and thoughtful. We usually go here when we want a "nicer dinner", with prices less than a steak house.
