If you enjoy true Italian atmosphere and food, this is the place. Benny, the owner, grew up in Sicily and learned to cook from his mother. It's the real deal. If you want americanized italian, go to the Oliver Garden.

Had no idea this restaurant even existed until an acquaintance told us about it. It's located in a shopping center that isn't "on the beaten path"! Food is outstanding. Truly Italian. Each dish is freshly prepared to order, which makes it really awesome for us...More
