Fabulous food! Be sure to have reservations on a weekend night. Try to get just the 'purest' varieties of the pastas--the fresh pasta and simple sauces were the best! I loved the gorgonzola warm bread and meatball. Yumster! Will definitely be back!

Place on the small side, but food is excellent. Pasta is home made with many different types. Nice view of park, and good for people watching. Can be a strange mix. Parking can be a problem.

We dined here based on all the Trip Advisor reviews and were very disappointed with the food quality. My caesar salad was returned for being way over dressed, and the replacement was identical, so it also was returned and I gave up on it. The...More

Dropped in around 5.30 for dinner after a long day. Friendly, knowledgeable staff walked us through the menu. I had the carbonara- delicious- and my friends had the mushroom ravioli and a pasta with almond sauce; both very good. Nice wine list, good side salad....More
