The wife and I had one of the best Italian dinners here. I had the Brasciole and she had the lasagna and the food, atmosphere, and service were excellent. We both ordered cocktails to start and they were ok but everything else was top notch....More

We had 9 people in a wedding party and sat outside in the garden. Wonderful drinks and food. Staff was very friendly and stayed on top of everything we needed. I had the butternut ravioli and chicken picotta. Both were great!

Great place for dinner before concerts or other venues in University Circle. Food is always reliable and consistently well done. Service is great.
