From the Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin decor and music you can tell you are in for an old school Italian meal. They have a full service bar and create your own pasta available on the menu with several pasta choices including cavatappi and gnocci. I ordered the marinara sauce which was good although much spicier than any marinara I've had elsewhere. There are many choices on the menu including several seafood options. The portions are very large and the service is very good, but the prices are a little high ($17 for cavatappi or gnocci with marinara sauce)

Good restaurant experience all around. Both our dinners were very good. And the tiramisu was tasty. One was enough for us to share. Service was quick and friendly. And being a little older I really dug the Sinatra Marilyn Monroe theme. Luckily I found a parking space close by on the street.

We were staying there overnight and walked to the restaurant. Food was very good,but very dark atmosphere. Everyone was using their phones to read the menu. Kind of makes you think that they don't want you to see everything around you. Still, good eats.

Stopped in for dinner. Located in an historic building in downtown Springfield- one of the buildings Pres. Lincoln used in his time. Good Italian food. Backround music is 50's - 60's (Sinatra, Dean Martin, etc) and very relaxing. Staff was courteous. It was somewhat dark inside, but one grew accustomed during the meal. The salmon was very good and shrimp cocktail was great. I would consider eating here again if I am in town.
