Everything about this night was just great. We were a party of nine and the service was excellent. Everyone was happy with the wide variety of food choices.

My husband and I stumbled upon this place, which is a bit off the beaten path. It was a delightful find. We ordered entrees that came with warm bread, a salad and side of either pasta or vegetable of the day. Plenty of food, and it was really good. The wine was pricey at $10.00 a glass, but the entrees... More

The salad was fresh and... More

This is the second time I have been here and it has not disappointed me. Very nice atmosphere for a smaller place. The food is excellent and the wait staff is very friendly. The prices are high, but I don't mine paying for good food and I walk out full and happy with the experience. The location is off the... More

A friend took me here for dinner. It's what you look for, that out of the way place with amazing food. The smell when you walk in the door lets you know that you are in for a treat. We had the mushrooms stuffed with sausage to start, then the fettuccine Alfredo with grilled chicken and was what I've been... More

While on a visit to Scranton, we ate at this restaurant with friends. The food was very good and the portions wee generous. I liked the cheese-stuffed ravioli that I ordered but the marinara sauce was not among my favorites. I recognize that that is a matter of choice. The server was very friendly and helpful. The restaurant was noisy... More

Was there this week for a business dinner. Was not sure about it at first but looks are deceiving. It is located in an odd section of town. The menu is overwhelming. In fact they might have to many options to choose from. On top of the regular menu they have "specials" every day. The bread was delicious and they... More
