Real Italian, drinks and a few appetizers to start. Salads for all, vinegarette or Caesar dressing. Fine. Had really good Liguini Alfredo. Others enjoyed other classic Italian dishes and seemed to enjoy.

What a disappointment. We have eaten her many times in the past Don't get me wrong--the food was excellent!! But the service was so lacking ... They had no record of our reservation (I was with my husband when he called to make it two days ago). Even with very few occupied tables and three service workers, we had to... More

Excellent food and good value for what you pay. Has a fresh, from-scratch feel. Go early or get a reservation as the place is small.

We had 3 different entrees and all were outstanding! One had veal piccata, one had scallops and one had pasta with Italian meatballs. All tasted authentic, and the service was excellent. Jazz was playing in the background and it was a great evening. We had two great waiters Coty and Roman.

This meal was exceptional from the hostess, Shauna, to the chef who came out Horatio. I had the Cioppino and my other guests had the gulf fish. Everything from the service to the food and even the "young guys" that were "yes-sirring" the entire conversation with them - it is highly recommended.

This is a small place, so make a reservation if you can! Family restaurant and the food is very good. Everything appears to be freshly prepared and we ALL enjoyed our meals. Half the group had the chicken parm and it looked amazing. I had the lasagna and it was delicious as well.

First of all the service was excellent. I had the calfs liver smothered in onions and if was the best ever. My wife had pasta with shellfish and it was in a red sauce that was over the top great. The place is located in a building that kind of looks like it should be in Colorado kind of western... More

This place can't decide what it wants to be. It uses paper placemats just like a pizza joint, but charges linen table cloth prices. $110 for 2 people is way too much for Greenville. The food is ok, not great. The service is ok, not great. Had to ask to have items brought that were ordered at start of meal.... More

Way over rated....if this is the best Italian in the area I feel sorry for Greenville. The servers should focus on service not attitude.....slow and not attentive in an empty restaurant......had to ask for wine and bread several times.......several things advertised were not available......main courses big but very average......I guess if you do BIGGG plates you can get good ratings...

We dined on a Tuesday early 5pm. Host greeted us, and with a cavalier wave, motioned us to a corner of dining room. After we sat where we thought he motioned, we were told the table was reserved. NOT! There were only 3 couples in the building and not more than one or two arrived before we left and no... More
