Italian isn't spelled "Olive Garden". Not in T town anyway. This is the only place to go for true cusine, ambience, service and a great wine list. Check out their website for menue, wine and more. This place is still a somewhat unknown hidden gem...More

First thing as you enter the aroma of garlic, olive oil & herbs makes your mouth watering. The pasta perfect al dente, savory flavors. Good selection of Italian wines. We truly enjoyed eating here a bit pricey but well worth it. Tamie H
