There were 10 of us. Service was sort of slow. I got the Antipasto Salad. It was ok but it was just too much stuff in it & not enough lettuce. The pizza looked good.

Just ate there! While my wife and sister-in law enjoyed their meal - one had manicotti and the other had parmigiana. I had gnocchi and extra meatballs. The gnocchi was under cooked. They didn't properly drain the gnocchi so the sauce was watered down! Didn't...More

This review is about the location in Glen Allen, Va on Staples Mill Rd. The food is traditional Italian. The small plates menu is great for senior citizens. Modest price and appropriate portions. Not a large place. Has booth seating which adds to the coziness.

My wife and I had a good lunch here. The menu has many of the expected Italian offerings, in addition to the mandatory pizza.
