This is a nice quaint restaurant with good food and outstanding wait staff and management. The menu has many choices and the prices are very economical. It's in a strip center but once you go inside it's like an old Italian joint in atmosphere.

Don't let the modest location fool you. This place is wonderful. Delicious food and great service. I begged them to open more locations so I wouldn't have to drive so far, but it is totally worth it. The homemade bread is to die for. We were there for lunch so I can't speak to dinner prices but lunch was one... More

This restaurant is near my neighborhood and was a wonderful surprise when my friends took me there. (They were all seasoned customers) It's in a strip center but don't let that fool you. I loved the food which seemed very authentic Italian. The staff all seem Italian too and very attentive. I usually have the Manicotti and the Lasagna. I'd... More

We have had pizza and other meals from this family friendly neighborhood Restaurant. However the Pizza needs to be improved. We eat a lot of Pizza from many restaurants. This latest pizza was not good. We would rather now buy our pizza someplace else. Their Pasta dishes however are very excellent.

The food is fabulous - all handmade, large quantities for very reasonable prices. The staff is fantastic - it retains it's local, intimate feel as more and more people find out what a jewel it is. It's a great choice for date night, girls day, lunch, dinner, birthdays, any occasion and the catering is great for corporate or large gatherings.... More

If I hadn't received a tip about this place from someone, I probably never would have tried it, and I would still be missing out. The staff is sweet and attentive, the service is fast, and there is a surprising amount of ambiance for a strip mall location. But the food, y'all, THE FOOD! It's worth it to go just... More

This is a great place for lunch or dinner I have been coming here for lunch for a few months as it is close to my office. Excellent food and reasonable prices. I recommend the Alex special.

First impression when walking in.....it's dark, very dark. You may need the flashlight app on your smart phone to read the menu, I had to use it. After my eyes adjusted, I could see that the walls and ceiling were painted a dark color, the table tops were black, the floor was dark, even the wait staff were dressed in... More

The food was good and service was also good. What wasn't good was that in the middle of lunch the air conditioning went out. We all started to feel it especially since we were seated near the kitchen. We were appalled to see servers and cooks sweating. Hopefully, not into our food. Salad was small and second serving of their... More
