Went with a friend last weekend for dinner, we ate at the bar. The chicken parmesian was delicious! It was served with a generous portion of freshly made angel hair pasta (hence the name pasta fresca) and a tangy marinara sauce. The bruschetta appetizer equally superb!
This restaurant has been on Forest Drive (previously further down the street) for many years and judging from how busy it it was is the go-to pasta place in Columbia, especially for those who want to support a family run restaurant over the two big ItaIian franchises here in town.

We had our anniversary dinner last night. The place came highly recommended and did not disappoint. I had the Seafood Santa Fe pasta and it was excellent. My wife got the seared scallops and she said the same. The menu has lots of choices from traditional to non traditional Italian dishes. The service was good and the people very nice. We also had a canoli for dessert which was very good as well...we will be back!

My wife and I stop here while traveling from New England to Florida. Never disappointed! If you want great food at a reasonable price and great service, you need to try this place. We both ordered specials this time and they were excellent.

Don't miss this place if you are in the Columbia area.
