Highly recommend. Absolutely delicious food, you will not be disappointed! The vibe is very warm, friendly and hospitable. Classic Italian dining, you will get to enjoy your food and your company rather than being rushed out of the restaurant.

This is a restaurant..meaning no pizza. It's small inside, and only tables with waiter/waitress service. The food is very good, authentic Italian cuisine. The veal is consistently very good.

After all the awesome reviews was going in thinking it would be one of the best Italian meals, ever. Ordered several special with the exception of the pasta which turned out best. Salads were one good, one average, the fish was okay. Plenty of food,...More

Small neighborhood restaurant with good food. It gets crowded so expect to wait. The food is all prepared fresh so it is worth the wait.
