Wasn't disappointed here. The food is very good and the staff are excellent. Pricing was in line with what I'd expected. Everything I ordered came out rather quickly and was delicious. I recommend the Mozzaluna appetizer for sure.

We were impressed with the ambiance, the service, and most of all the food. Bar choices are full range too. The salad was cold and crisp. The warm bread disappeared quickly. Our meals were superb. Unfortunately we had no room left for the homemade desserts....More

This is a really good Italian restaurant and the price is OK. All dishes we ordered were great and the breads they offered were fresh and warm. The chicken parmigiana with Fettuccine Alfredo portion were big enough for 2. Great selection.

My picky six year old declared the pepperoni pizza the “best in the world” and it was very good. I ordered the lobster ravioli which was overstuffed with lobster! They allowed me to switch the cognac cream sauce out for a marinara. The fried provolone...More
