The restaurant is in a small strip center - don't let that fool you. This is a wonderful casual restaurant with great service and excellent food.

The service is very attentive. We enjoyed an affordable and excellent 642 Maremma Toscana Il Canapone with grilled calamari over kale and legume salad, a generous appetizer of carpaccio, a delicate... More

This was my first time here at this small little Italian restaurant located in a strip mall above all else. Parking is a little tight, but our friends visit frequently and said that we should dine early. Now I understand why. This place gets packed! We were not disappointed!

This was a great restaurant. The pizza was was as good as what we had when visiting Naples, Italy. The salmon was also excellent. It was very popular.

Just loved my dinner. I started with Brussel sprouts with onions and parmigiana cheese which was delicious. My main course was the freshest Bronzino I ever had. Great wine list, amazing service. Wish it was closer to home.

Try the buratta, gnocchi, and any of the wood fired pizzas. This is the kind of place where they get to know you a little after two or three visit. We've never made a reservation, but would recommend doing so if eating during peak hours. Ver nice selection of wines by the glass served by attentive staff.
