Amazing Italian food with the perks of an authentic Italian market attached. The prices are decent and there is something on the menu for everyone

The drinks were good. The bread was great! We both ordered Pollo Arrosto, a little dry! The coffee is the problem! It was like coffee you would get on a air plane, cool and bland! Our server, Adam M, was very good! Will try again,...More

Huge restaurant but still feels cozy. Husband and I shared marguerita pizza and lobster ravioli....both wonderful! Wood fired grill was a great way to cook pizza. Great Amadeo Chianti. Bread and dipping sauce tasty. Adam did a great job as server.
