We happen to dine on a night when a wine tasting party was taking place in the other room. We sat in a back room that was old in its decor. Our server was a little preoccupied with the other party.

From appetizers like escargot to pasta like linguine with mussels,fradiavlo, to cannoli for dessert, you will think you died and went to heaven. Just so comfortable to have the old fashioned waiter with an immaculate hand towel across his arm,along with helpers who have all dinners out at the same time, mouthwatering and hot.

Phenomenal Italian food. We had the Cesar salad with chicken, spaghetti, and lasagna! The server was also amazing. He was the only server on the floor and he was quick, efficient, and very professional! We will definitely be back! the

This handsomely decorated restaurant, near AJs (upscale grocery) and Lincoln on Scottsdale Road, is well staffed and with a delightful menu. The dining selections at lunchtime were quite appealing, and the servers very helpful. Quite worth a trip for those in the area.

Love the vintage 50's nightclub ambiance. Last time I ate here, there was a stripper and a mafioso bodyguard at the next table. Pasta sampler was amazing.
