We were going for pasta before a race and found this with good reviews. We shared a cauliflower gratin that was excellent. I had the spaghetti a la gambertti (with shrimp), husband had the seasonal special pasta a la campagna (spicy sausage, peppers, tomatoes in a light cream sauce) (AMAZING) and kids had meatballs and spaghetti and spicy sausage and...

We had a lovely Valentine's Dinner here. After being seated at a two-small table, our server graciously moved us to a much larger and more comfortable table. The food was outstanding as was our server, Nicole. Cappuccino would have made the evening perfect.

The reviews were good, the place looked nice, and the people seemed to be enjoying the food. First, the service was fantastic. The young lady that... More

Quick pasta restaurant, garlic bread was cold. Lunch sized pasta was very small. Mista salad was huge with lots of mescali. Fast service.
