Many people in area rave about this place. Was not happy with food I ordered. Pasta was plain, no flavor. Wife got veal and she was not happy.

We have eaten at a lot of Italian restaurants and this is our favorite. Start with an order of garlic knots (6 knots per order), we love them enough that we normally get two orders. If you like pasta, the Tortellini Alla Vodka is a...More

Cozy, comfortable venue. So good you usually need a reservation to get in. Great place for a special event dinner.

Small, quaint place, but with great Italian food, and served with BIG portions. I think they only take reservations, but not positive. We had the Cavatini Bolognese and Chicken Fettucini Alfredo. Only downside is a limited beer selection.

Dinner was great. I had the lasagna (took some home). We had the brushetta as an appetizer and my husband had the mushroom ravioli. It was all good. Our server was great as well. Great special occasion/date night place!

The best Italian in town without a doubt. For lunch try the chicken caesar salad, it is large portion very filling with a caesar dressing that I've never found anywhere else. Definitely home made, very good. My son got a Calzone, which also is fantastic.
