I hail from New England ...where Italian food takes on an ‘art form.’. So when I went here with a date and found some semblance of ‘home’...bravo!

Place has the ambiance of old world Italian food. This nite Lindsey our server could not have been nicer or more professional.

Food : Veal Fungi, with roasted veggies -good portion good flavoring. Polenta was flat-literally. She had veal, mushrooms, over linguini a special of the night. Said it was great.

Desert : spumoni...very good!

Nice job.

Good Service.
Good Food.
Nothing here is terrific. Everything seems to be "good."
Its worth a try. Just don't expect gourmet excellence or home-cooking and you'll likely be happy.

We went to dinner on Saturday night and had a lovely time. Nick is an amazing server and we thoroughly enjoyed our meals. I highly recommend ordering the garlic bread. I had the Veal with Mushrooms and it was absolutely delightful.

We've been fans for several years and would have rated it tops Italian in Reno . . . but . . .

Had dinner there this week and caught them after the first seating on a not-so-busy Saturday night. Very, very mediocre.

Salad was overdressed and soupy . . . soup was not hot. Veggies weren't fresh and the grilled pork chop was pale and desperately needed seasoning.

Although the service was top-notch, it was disappointing indeed.

Made reservation and showed up on time and seated within a few minutes of reservation time. That's ok - place was full. Were seated and served. Good food and good service.
