We all ordered the same large pasta dish. Splitting an entree costs $6.95, so we didn’t. In our case, three of the four huge entrees were too large to finish. The side of meatballs was outstanding. Good service, good drinks menu. Would not return.

We walked here from our downtown hotel. It was really a fun place and the atmosphere was warm and inviting. The food was excellent! The meatballs are delicious and the soup was excellent. I really enjoyed the service.

We stopped here for dinner on a Friday night before a show. The restaurant is a bit smallish and crowded, but I prefer to describe the environment as intimate. After drinks, we enjoyed outstanding minestrone soup and a huge Caesar salad (even the 'half' salad...More

OK, the build-up may have been too much for a city known for beer and German food. We were given a recommendation of great Italian. It was good, not great. Nice atmosphere, decent wine list and service was fine. The place had a good crowd...More
