My wife and I and three friends ate a variety of Italian dishes at this restaurant. Spaghetti Carbonara, tortellini, veal scaloppini, were all delicious, and the service was superb. Nice wine and beer list. They do al dente if you ask.

Had a beef dish that sounded great (can't remember the name, unfortunately) but ended up being essentially beef stew. Was okay, but nothing special. Decor is nice. Not "wowed" like I expected to be based on other reviews. Maybe I just ordered a dish that...More
