The only reason i am posting is to prevent others from experiencing. Stale bread, slimey oil cruet, spotted glasses, and all this before our meal came. Nothing special about the food. I should have known when we walked in and were given laminated menus!

Looking for a good place to eat without standing in line and paying way to much in downtown Memphis is difficult! This place was easy to get to, great service, food and prices. I will be back. NL

Food here was excellent and prices were exceptional. If you go on Wednesday, all pizzas and wines are half price. Service was friendly. Atmosphere was busy but fun and many large groups were gathered for fun dining with very good food and fair prices.

This was our favorite place in Memphis. It is small, so make reservations, particularly on half price wine nights. We weren't able to get a table but we ate at the bar and enjoyed conversing with another tourist who had the lasagna which looked amazing....More

Stumbled across this place and very happy we chose it! Italian restaurants are tough to find in the south and this was a treat-good food, nice atmosphere, professional service and reasonable prices. We'd definitely return.
