Excellent authentic Italian cuisine. Intimate space with a huge selection of specials. The waitstaff always know what the best choice is! And the wine to go with it!

Not only is the place inviting and charming, the food is delicious. Try the pasta with bolognese, it's one of the best in local Italian restaurants. It's a sweet place to bring a date or enjoy your grown up family.

Stopped in one night on our trip to eat a very late dinner. Three of us shared ravioli and tortellini. Both were delicious! The service was excellent, and the place is very cute inside. Highly recommend!

I've never paid $20 for a plate of linguine, but did here. I got the linguine with scallops and shrimp. The scallops were fantastic. The shrimp was average. The combination of it all was well done. My only small complaint was it was 3 scallops...More
