Went with two others, started with antipasto platter. Very tasty, a bit skimpy for three people, I would recommend for two people. I had a hanger steak, crunchy exterior, medium rare exterior (as I had ordered it). Excellent. Ended with a pot de creme, also...More

Great food and great service! Sat outside which is a wonderful option. Ordered calamari- it's not fried but cooked in a tomato sauce. Very tasty. Gulf fish was a wood grilled redfish served over a variety of chopped veggies. Delicious. Service was attentive without being...More

It's my regular "go-to" Italian spot in Bham. Wonderful wines and handmade pastas with a great atmosphere. I highly recommend the Quatro Formaggi, Sugo di Pomodoro, and the Risotto with Scallops. The wine selection is well thought-out. If you're into cocktails, the offerings are imaginative...More

As an Italian, it's difficult to find an experience like what I received as a child. The antipasto, bread, meal, salad, and service were just like home. Completely impressed and will return often!

Went in to try the neoplitan style pizza. We ordered two different ones, but 1 would have been plenty'with a split salad or appetizer. Eat the bread-its worth the calories! Try the olive oil based AND the marinara based pizza. They are both Devine and...More
