Unlikely strip mall location for delicious Italian food. The calamari appetizer was delicious. My homemade gnocchi was fabulous. Others had the chef's special chicken with homemade pasta. It was lovely as well. All and all, glad we stumbled in.

Welcoming, personal service that made us feel at home and special. We had wonderful rack of lamb, salmon, homemade pasta/meatball. The garlic bread was yummy as was the buffalo cauliflower. Best tiramisu evah! Highly recommend for date night and special occasions.
