We dined about 6 PM and did not have to wait. On-street parking was plentiful at that time. The service was very good, and we were able to enjoy a leisurely meal without hustling. Reservations are taken. When we left about 8 PM, the dining room and front porch were full. The menu was mostly tomato-based Italian, but there are alternatives. Suggestions: call ahead, or arrive early.

The best thing about dinner was dessert and it came from a local gelato shop. All the other dishes were a real let down. We started with the antipasto board with cheeses. We order this all the time when we visit Italian restaurants and this version was the worst by far. Why? The meats were all cut too thick and the prosciutto was cut in the wrong direction making it inedible.
The main dish was veal bolognese. The pasta was perfect but the sauce was overwhelmed by seasoning. All you could taste was rosemary and something that tasted like poultry seasoning. Really bad.

Went here on a recommendation from a business down the street.
It is in an old house made into restuarant.

Crab Bisque was delicious but I would like a few more chunks of crab. Still good.
The lunch portion of chicken parmigiana was huge and we both shared it. It was crispy, delicious and the sauce was homemade.

The outdoor seating was perfect.
You can tell the food was not canned.
What we had was delicious and I know we will return the next time we travel to Brevard.

We went there two nights in a row. Special cocktails were a wonderful treat but only available the first night (bartender works other restaurants). We had lamb rib appetizer both nights - outstanding. Chicken Parmesan was fantastic. Lasagna was very good but we would have preferred cheesier. Butternut squash ravioli special outstanding - full of excellent kielbasa sausage. Great bowl of black bean soup. Menu is varies and call ahead to know the specials are ask for special dish and they may be able to accommodate. We had two different waitresses and both were very attentive and helpful.

Excellent service—prompt, continuous, quiet and brief.
Excellent food—manicotti top rate. Good menu—large enough to cover most tastes but small enough to allow careful prep and cooking for individual orders.
Great ambience
Hard to ask for more.
