We were able to get there without getting on the interstate from our hotel near UAB at rush hour. We got there at 6 pm and were able to pick a table. There was a wait by the time we left. Traditional Italian choices. Old...More

Made quick accommodations for a table of 7. Calzone was huge and amazing! Filled exactly how I ordered it. Everyone, all 7, were pleased. Don’t overlook this place.

We wanted Italian and this place had excellent reviews so we decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed! The food was exceptional and we weren't broke when we left. It's off of the beaten path but worth the trip!

Stopped in with a coworker after a long day. Split a bottle of wine and went to town on some chicken and broccoli with alfredo sauce.

This Cafe seriously has the BEST lasagna I’ve ever had! I have young children, and they even like the pastas and pizzas! Small on the inside; call and make reservations!

Great little Italian food cafe. The whole place seats about 45 so come early or you may have to wait but it will be worth it. If you you want calzone then you won’t leave hungry. Great food and great service. A local gem.

Lovely Italian restaurant with authentic food. Just ask for extra Garlic to make everything even more authentic!! Lol. We were there last week to celebrate a birthday and the staff were incredibly kind and polite. Thanks, Nancy.

Found a review on TA and decided to give it a try. Small dinning room that really needs some fresh paint & new furnishings. The menus are tired plastic sleeves from the 1990’s. That said the chicken alfredo with penne and prosciutto is fantastic. Wonderful...More
