We stopped in here on a whim while visiting the area, and we were not disappointed. The service was excellent, and the food was great. I had the daily special, and you can tell everything is made fresh. I would definitely recommend.

We walked in after locals recommended the Park Circle area for dinner. The inside is tight because of the large bar but the tables and booths gave plenty of space for diners. Both of my daughters, age 8 & 5, enjoyed their meals. My husband...More

The only thing I can recommend is the caesar salad, which was the only thing I liked. I ordered the chicken parmagiana with angel hair pasta. The pasta was overcooked, which you shouldn't expect in an italian restaurant. And I couldn't eat the chicken because...More
