This is a very, very good Italian restaurant hidden away in the Ralph's shopping plaza on the corner of Cook and Country Club. A bit on the high side for lunch, but the pasta is wonderful!

We like this restaurant for Italian. We had reservations and had a great evening. Service was outstanding and wait staff were friendly, courteous and efficient. All of our meals were delicious. Location was great for us as we were staying at the JW Marriott.

We went tonight for our first time, had to ask 4 times for glass of water. Our meal was good but we asked for desert menu & our waiter brought the bill! Apparently we were not buying enough wine 😟

This is one of our favorite Italian restaurants. It's cozy and feels like your in a little bistro in Italy. Staff is always friendly and knowledgeable. Many of the dishes are delicious, but the Caprese Salad and Linguine with clam sauce are Bella!
